      Seamlessly blending period charm with modern-day family living, the accommodation is arranged over three floors and comprises four sizeable bedrooms, a delightful sitting room fitted with a wood-burning stove, and an open-plan kitchen/dining room with an adjoining utility room.

There are two further sizeable bedrooms on the first floor, both served by the family bathroom.
