About this property

    The adjoining dining area overlooks and opens on to the terrace and garden. Following round, the living room area, with fireplace, has stunning views down the garden towards the countryside beyond. There is a separate snug/play room and study on the ground floor. Off the hall there is a cloakroom, a utility room with space for white goods and a useful larder pantry cupboard.

    On the first floor, the principal bedroom with dressing area and en suite bathroom has a vaulted ceiling and the same big views as the living room. There is a guest room with en suite bathroom, 2 further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
