The ground floor flows from a welcoming reception hall and briefly comprises a generous front aspect sitting room and a large dining room, currently purposed as a family room, both with feature fireplace with wood burning stove. The extensive rear aspect kitchen with neighbouring fitted utility room provides a range of Alexander Lewis wall and floor units with an Aga, modern integrated appliances and access to the rear terrace.

The enclosed rear garden is laid mainly to level lawn with raised flowerbeds and mature shrubs and trees and offers a large paved terrace, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, and access to a spacious outbuilding, suitable for a variety of uses.
