With accommodation over two floors, designed to take full advantage of its extensive views, the house also has planning permission for a two storey side extension.

The reception room has a fireplace and door to a south west facing terrace. There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor.

    There is off-road parking either side of the drive and a set of steps lead up to a substantial terrace and lawned area in front of the building. There is covered porch and storage building to the side of the house and a further area of lawn at the back of the building, with potential for future landscaping or extension of the existing building, subject to the necessary consents.
