The stylish, beautifully presented rooms include an entrance hall, generous lounge with wood burning stove, traditional kitchen with bespoke cabinetry, dining room, and utility room.  The ground floor is completed by an additional flexible use room, currently used as a play room but would be ideal for multi-generational living or annexe potential  There is also a study/home office to facilitate home working.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one with Juliet balcony and one with an ensuite shower room, two single bedrooms, family bathroom with roll top bath and a fifth bedroom, currently used as a cinema room/snug.
