On the first floor, the principal bedroom suite includes a 16 ft bedroom with fitted wardrobes, an adjoining dressing room and a bathroom; there are three further bedrooms which are served by a family bathroom.

    The house is set slightly back from the road and screened from the road by tall hedging. Inneswood has right of way over the first portion of the drive, which is owned by the neighbour (see Agent's Note), and has a drive leading through the front garden to the attached garage.

    Gates at either side of the house open to the fully enclosed rear garden, which is largely level and faces south west.
