    On the first floor the principal bedroom has a range of fitted wardrobes and overlooks the garden as does the guest bedroom (which used to include a shower room so is ample sized to do so again if needed). There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom with walk in shower and bath.

    The property is approached through an oak gate to the gravel driveway, providing off street parking for several vehicles and giving access to the garage with power and light. The rear garden is of a westerly aspect and is mainly laid to lawn with well stocked flower borders and a large paved patio area.
