The open plan kitchen and living area is spacious, with plenty of space for a family to cook and eat together. The adjacent living room has a wood-burning stove and is perfect for cosy evenings in. On the garden level, there is also a boot room, utility room, hot press and shower room.
An unusual carved wooden staircase leads to the upper floor, which has four bedrooms. The master bedroom features an ensuite, as well as a walk-in wardrobe.

A granite-clad boiler house provides ample storage, in addition to the garage to the rear of the house. There is also plenty of parking space, behind electronically operated gates.
