In addition both a large study and separate dining area allow for flexible accommodation and could be utilised as a downstairs bedroom and a playroom if a purchaser desired. The ground floor is complete with a useful utility/boot room as well as a separate cloakroom.

      The first floor offers four double bedrooms with these being served via a four piece family bathroom as well as an ensuite to the principal room. A separate walk in wardrobe provides good storage.
