    To the front, off to the left hand side of the entrance hall sits a bay fronted study, also laid with dark parquet Karndean flooring and benefiting loft access.

    Off to the right hand side of the entrance hall is a versatile reception room, currently utilised as a cinema room, however, this space could also be a used as a playroom, dining room or hobby room.

An inner lobby off the kitchen diner allows access to a good sized utility room with further base and wall storage, a secondary sink and provisions for a washing machine and dryer. The internal lobby also provides access to the rear of the property and integral access to the double garage which benefits internal power, lighting and electrically operated doors.
