The heart of the home is the open-plan kitchen, breakfast room and drawing room, which stretches to 42ft across the back of the house and opens onto the gardens via Bi-fold doors.

There is one further bedroom en-suite, accessed via its own staircase, while the main first-floor area also has a luxury family bathroom.


At the front of the property, gates open onto a walled courtyard area with plenty of parking space for several vehicles. The rear garden is south-facing and welcomes plenty of sunlight throughout the day. There is a raised, paved terrace area and steps leading to a generous expanse of lawn with border fencing, shrubs and hedgerow.
