On the ground floor, the entrance hall leads to

the sitting room with its original beamed ceiling,

exposed brick fireplace and open access to the dining room which boasts similar beamed ceilings and walls. The kitchen incorporates a range of wood panelled base and wall units, a double oven, 4-ring gas hob with overhead gas grill, washing machine and dishwasher, original beamed ceilings with spotlights and access to the rear gardens via a lobby. A utility and cloakroom complete the accommodation downstairs. Upstairs you will find the principal suite containing a bedroom, en suite bathroom and dressing room with a further three generous double bedrooms with ample storage facilities. A beautiful family bathroom services the three additional bedrooms, and an additional single bedroom on the second floor featuring a vaulted ceiling and skylight window.
