An impressive reception hall centres the property with a substantial fireplace with wood burning stove, sealed limestone flooring, exposed beams and the room enjoys plenty of natural light. The elegant drawing room has a large inglenook fireplace, oak flooring, exposed beams, revealed stonework and lovely mullioned windows. Situated across the reception hall is the sitting room with contemporary stone fireplace featuring wood burner and timber flooring. The room enjoys views to the fore of the property. The kitchen and breakfast room have access to the gardens and grounds with the kitchen featuring exposed beams, bespoke floor and wall mounted cupboards, central island, three door Aga and modern integral appliances.

The North easterly end of the house features a good sized bedroom with en suite bathroom and shower built into the gable end. The room benefits from lovely views over the gardens and paddocks to the east. The alternative bedroom is situated to the south end of the house with large bedroom, walk in wardrobe and en suite shower room. This room has a dual aspect.
