    The hall with its roof light provides an attractive entrance into the property. Off this steps lead down to the living room which has an exposed stone wall with a stove and underfloor heating. It has windows on three sides including two sets of French doors to the patio outside. The patio is fully enclosed by a glass screen which makes a lovely area for young children to play and for outside dining. The well fitted kitchen by Howdens is separated off the living room.

    The three bedrooms are off an upper landing. Bedroom 2 has a built in shower. The principal bedroom has a French door to the front, a dressing room and en suite bathroom behind. There is also a family bathroom.

    The utility room gives access to the back garden.
