The property is approached via a large vestibule which opens through to the reception hall which includes a maple floor and rising staircase to the first floor. There are three principal rooms located off and these include the dual aspect drawing room and dining room which also has the aforementioned conservatory directly off, in between there is a useful study. The kitchen/breakfast room has been beautifully appointed with granite work surfaces and a quality array of wall and base units, an island also has a breakfast bar and there are a wide array of integrated appliances by Miele. Beyond is a more relaxed sitting room with doors opening on to the landscaped garden and terraces. A utility off the kitchen is well appointed with the prerequisite plumbing and there is a pedestrian door to the front elevation in addition to a further door to the integrated garage. Located off the first floor galleried landing there are five bedrooms, the master bedroom has its own dedicated en suite bathroom and there is a further family bathroom with a comprehensive suite and separate WC. A spiral staircase off the landing provides access to the attic room which has been used as a bedroom and includes an en suite shower room.
A large amount of attention has been lavished on the outside of the property and there is an ornamental front lawn fringed with low dry stone wall and with heavily planted borders. Gates provide access and loose gravelled car parking with the integrated garage beyond which includes an electrically operated up and over door. There is a large workshop area and a further pedestrian door to the rear garden.
