Particular attention is drawn to the Jerusalem Gold limestone flooring. Integral AEG appliances include an induction hob, oven and grill, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

      A vaulted sitting room enjoys a double aspect benefitting from both front and garden views, incorporating French doors opening onto the patio area and a carpeted mezzanine floor. Off the sitting room is a versatile study/bedroom three with a vaulted ceiling and views of the garden.

      To the front of the property, there is off street parking and access to the restored original Gulf fuel pumps, formerly part of the village garage and refurbished to include night time illumination. The gardens lie predominantly to the rear with the main focus being a stunning terrace, perfect for al fresco dining. Well established lawns and shrubs expand to the west with magnolia and enclosed by fencing to the perimeter.
