The kitchen makes very effective use of the good space on offer, with attractive base and wall units and smart quartz worktops providing good storage and preparation space; with integrated appliances electric hob/oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. To the lower ground floor there is a W.C., utility room and very useful half-height basement/storage room.

Bourne House benefits from allocated parking for one car and access to a log store. Whilst the house does not have any private gardens, just across the road is the delightful Jack Verrall Memorial Garden which is a lovely spot to relax. The house is also ideally located for access to wonderful countryside walks and just moments from the lovely local café, for alfresco drinking and dining.
