    On entering the property there is a large entrance hall, with storage cupboards and access to a cloak/shower room. This serves as a private shower room to the large guest bedroom off the hall which enjoys separate garden access, originally designed as a granny annex.

    The main living space comprises an open plan sitting and dining /garden room area. The sitting room with TV presents as a luxurious snug featuring library shelving and solid oak flooring.

    The dining/garden room has been designed to be flexible with bi-fold doors onto the large patio which can be opened in summer for an indoor/outdoor room and transformed into a more formal dining area in winter with a modern wood burning stove as a feature.

    The large kitchen diner area adjoins the sitting room but also has a separate access via patio doors at the front of the property.

    The kitchen appliances are all integrated and the dining area features a vintage Jotul wood burner and vaulted ceilings. A large laundry/utility room is off to the side which also accesses the back garden. A new stone floor has been laid throughout.

    The bedroom wing is accessed from here and consists of a principal room with a dressing room and en suite shower room, as well as direct access to the front gardens.

    There are two further double bedrooms with generous wardrobes and storage. The modern family bathroom features a super-size double ended bath and separate shower with pocket door access to a large bedroom which makes it en suite for guests.
