      At entry level, there are two reception rooms, one to the rear which is ideal as a more relaxed family/tv room, with a more formal sitting room found to the front, with a bay window and striking feature fireplace with attractive fitted alcove units to either side.

      The lower ground floor has been transformed under our clients' ownership and is home to the wonderful open-plan kitchen/breakfast room centred around a large island with striking quartz worktop incorporating the induction hob and extractor, providing plenty of preparation space, with bespoke Harvey Jones base and wall cabinetry provide good storage and a range of integrated appliances, with plenty of room for more informal dining. The striking Crittall-style windows and double doors that open to the gardens allow natural light to flood this area. The dramatic and luxurious formal dining room is a superb room for more formal entertaining and is accessed via a further interior Crittall-style door feature. A newly and beautifully appointed wc completes the lower ground floor.
