On entering the property, you are greeted with a large hallway with sweeping staircase. To the left is an exceptional L-shaped reception room with wooden floors and a working fireplace. This incredible room also benefits from views over both the front garden - through high quality double glazed windows - and the rear, with two sets of French doors leading out to an Indian Sandstone terrace and gardens beyond.

The attractive staircase, with curved walls and large picture window overlooking the front garden and playing fields beyond, leads up to the first floor. The principal bedroom has fitted wardrobes and the benefit of French doors that lead out to a balcony overlooking the rear garden. This room also has an well-appointed en suite bathroom by Nicholas Anthony with porcelain wood effect tiles, large walk-in shower and gorgeous elliptical bath.
