The House

The property has three generous double bedrooms, a single bedroom (presently used as a walk-in wardrobe) and an additional bedroom suite with mezzanine level. There are three ensuite shower rooms, as well as a spacious family bathroom with luxurious roll top bath. The mezzanine level leads into a large boarded loft with a number of rooms with conversion potential, subject to all necessary planning regulations.
