    The ground floor accommodation is all accessible from the hall including the light and modern kitchen/breakfast room which has windows on three sides. There are a range of cream coloured floor and glazed wall units with granite style worktop, double Belfast sink and a matching central island with a small stainless steel sink inset. A black four oven AGA provides cooking facilities with a timber mantle over.

    The sitting room is dual aspect and has a wood burning stove with timber mantlepiece surround. The large drawing room opens out into a south facing sun room and features an open fireplace with marble effect surround.
