The front porch which features a traditional tiled floor opens into the main hallway which benefits from built in storage and features the staircase to the upper floor. Flooded with natural light the drawing room is an impressive space with large windows to two sides and some lovely detailed cornicing to the picture rail. The unusual ‘ barrel style’ vaulted ceiling is a lovely feature and helps to accentuate the feeling of light and space. The well planned family accommodation continues with the large dining room/family room which is open plan from the kitchen, newly fitted throughout with Fired Earth tiled flooring. This space again features a large window and a feature fireplace. Plenty of room for family dining as well as sofas or such like if preferred. An opening from this room leads into the refurbished, modern kitchen which has been tastefully fitted with a range of shaker style units with tiled splashbacks and integrated hob with separate eye level oven. Further appliances include slot in dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There is a useful utility room off the kitchen which provides space for separate washing machine and dryer together with a sink and extra storage, including a sizeable pantry cupboard. A cloakroom off is fitted with a WC and wash hand basin. To the rear and enjoying a fabulous outlook over the private gardens, the garden room is a fantastic addition to the property. With access off the dining/family room the layout provides the option of a semi open plan living space if required. The garden room has double doors connecting directly to the garden in addition to rear and side facing windows. Again a vaulted style ceiling maximises the feeling of light and space.

From the hallway at the foot of the stairs there is access to a walk in storage room which houses the mains gas boiler. From the there is access to a cellar, ideal for additional storage or perhaps even a wine store.


All three bedrooms are sizeable rooms; the master room is an impressive room with triple aspect windows taking in views over the garden grounds at the rear and a good sized walk in wardrobe. Bedrooms two and three are located to the front and are both light and airy rooms with dual aspect windows and built in storage. Having been refitted recently the bathroom is well appointed and freshly presented with a modern suite complete with bath and separate shower.
