The property benefits from a private front drive with parking for two vehicles bordered by an established hedge.

      The accommodation is arranged over three floors and flows remarkably well, comprising of wonderfully proportioned, light-filled rooms with high ceilings, typical of the 19th century. There are excellent period features throughout, including high skirting boards, picture rails and original chimneypieces.

      On entering the front door, you are met with a double storey lobby with light flooding in through tall Crittall style windows, and matching door leading to the garden.

      Turning now to the main hallway, this leads to the property's main reception rooms. An elegantly proportioned dining room with bay window; the sitting room with marble fireplace and French windows that open onto the garden; a cosy second sitting room/study with original cast fireplace and built-in glazed cabinet; and the kitchen with stairs to the cellar.

      The first floor has four bedrooms, the principal is currently being used as an artist's studio as it is bathed with the morning sun. One of the rear bedrooms is presently a second kitchen. Also on this floor is a generously sized family bathroom with an internal window overlooking the lobby. The top floor comprises of two more bedrooms, one with en suite, and spacious walk-in eaves storage front and rear.
