The dining area enjoys a dual aspect with French doors out to the patio. Just off the kitchen is a useful store room/pantry/utility.

      A spacious, formal dining room is accessible via the kitchen diner, entrance hall and inner hallway, a pleasant entertaining room with two built-in display cabinets and access to the rear courtyard.

      Double oak doors lead from the entrance hall into a dual aspect sitting room, featuring a focal point stone built fireplace with inset log burner and a door out to the front patio.

      A superb lounge / summer dining room with glazed doors that open out to the central courtyard is also home to three original stone troughs that have been left in situ, adding to the unique character of the property. The stunning cathedral vaulted ceiling, beautiful exposed beams, feature stonework, oak flooring and Italian designer log burner as the main focal point make this a hugely impressive room that also separates the living accommodation and ground floor bedrooms.

      Steps lead up from the lounge / summer dining room to an inner hallway which is automatically lit by the recessed lighting and leads on to an en suite double bedroom with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. A large, dual aspect double bedroom, also with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and a exposed brick feature wall is positioned to the end of the hall which leads on to a three piece bathroom, fitted with Porcelanosa tiles and sanitary ware to include a central freestanding bath, low level WC and wall mounted wash hand basin.
