Across the hall is the formal dining room with wood burning stove, again with an attractive three sided bay window. A door links the dining room to the wonderful garden room with high vaulted ceiling and doors leading to the rear garden. Accessed from the garden room is a bedroom with en suite shower room and a separate cloakroom. The kitchen enjoys views across the garden and is fitted with an excellent range of cabinets and an island unit. Adjoining the kitchen is a useful utility area.

      The property benefits from a detached cottage comprising sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, two bedroom suites and a bathroom. The kitchen was replaced in 2019/2020, along with the installation of new windows and a new boiler. There is a dedicated garden to the side. The Cottage is perfect for accommodating visitors or generating additional income.

There is a large well-maintained lawned area, well-stocked borders and specimen trees including fruit trees. A willow fence and evergreen hedging plants creates a screen between the main house and the Cottage. At the bottom of the garden is a summer house and a green house.
