    Over the ground and first floors are five attractive double bedrooms served by three bath/shower rooms (one being en suite), all are well appointed and fitted with white suites complemented by chrome fittings and pressurised showers.
    The master bedroom suite also enjoys a lovely outlook over the fields and features a dressing area with hanging and storage. Access can be gained from the landing to the ample loft space.
    Saracens Paddock is approached via electric double gates with the drive dividing and a spur leading to the house, detached home office and open bay garaging and the other continuing to the stables and a further area of parking.
