The property’s main access is via a reception hall with steps into the impressive drawing room.

To the rear of the ground floor there is also a comfortable sitting room with full height windows looking out over the garden.

The substantial kitchen/dining room is a pleasant, open space with a wide range of farmhouse-style wall and base units, as well as various modern built-in appliances, and ample room for family dining. This leads through into the rear hall and back door, where there is a useful utility room and a cloakroom.

The first floor provides a generous array of bedrooms, all benefitting from excellent proportions. The traditional charm is maintained throughout with beams and characterful painted wooden doors, and all five of the property’s bedrooms have access to modern en suite bath or shower rooms. A quiet sitting area/study also offers an ideal spot for a comfortable home office. Four of the bedrooms, including the principal, also benefit from substantial built-in wardrobe space.
