      The ground floor features a wide hallway off which are a large family room and a smaller snug or study together with a cloakroom. There is a large open plan sitting room leading through to the dining/garden room which is top lit by a large lantern and features bi-folding doors overlooking the rear terrace and garden.

    I think this is a really great family house but the biggest surprise is the enormous paddock. As an added bonus the house is heated by a ground source heat pump so it's economically and financially efficient too.
