There are doors leading off to the main reception room which also has a central redbrick fireplace, wood burning stove and exposed beams.

A further door flows through to an inner hall with an external door to the front of the property and the kitchen/breakfast room is off this, fitted with a good range of wall and base units, range cooker, central island and integrated appliances.
The first floor can be accessed by two separate staircases and offers a main bedroom with en suite bathroom and a further three double bedrooms, with bedroom 2 and 3 having access to the Jack and Jill bathroom.
The beautiful rear gardens are particularly spectacular and have been meticulously cared for to offer a serene space with ornamental pond, feature fountain, decked areas and an array of established trees and plants.
