      The kitchen/breakfast room has a range of 'Fired Earth' wall and free-standing units, space for fridge/freezer, cooker, washing machine and dishwasher. There is a central island with breakfast bar that will prove most useful when having guests over and socialising. Between the kitchen/breakfast room and

      driveway. The sitting room, that also has a brick surround
      fireplace with log burner, enjoys a dual aspect and opens into the dining/music room.

      From here there is an abundance of light from the floor to ceiling windows as well as patio doors opening into the garden, stairs up to the first floor and an integral door into the garage.

      The first floor can be accessed from two staircases. The primary staircase leads up to the principal bedroom and another bedroom. The principal bedroom has full width built in wardrobes, vaulted ceiling, en suite bathroom and a delightful
      feature balcony that enjoys views over the garden and beyond. The other bedroom is of a good size and also features a vaulted ceiling and has access to the Jack & Jill shower room.

      From the other staircase there is access to the remaining bedrooms and family bathroom (the family bathroom can also work as en suite to the bedroom located to the front of the property if required). They are all of a good size and could be used as bedrooms, studies or hobby rooms.
