      The property is approached through a panelled oak door in the centre of the house with a gabled canopy which leads into the main hall and runs the full depth of the property.

      To the left of the hall, an impressive double reception room runs from the front to the rear of the property with triple aspects and consequently benefits from an abundance of natural light. The room is further enhanced with a side bay window and a large brick exposed fireplace with wood burning stove.
