    • The Property

      The house is well presented internally and is decorated in a classically country style with a handful of modern additions including a contemporary kitchen with underfloor heating, bi-fold doors and updated bath and shower rooms. The home is presented in neutral décor which invites further personalisation and enhancement by the new owner with good scope to extend if desired (subject to obtaining the necessary consents).

Stairs rise to a second floor study landing, and a further double bedroom with built-in storage.
