The kitchen, a warm room with hardwood floors and wooden beams, can be found further inside the property. Highlights include a Belfast sink, stylish cabinetry and a beautiful island with additional counter space in the centre of the room. Several large windows line the walls, allowing plenty of natural daylight to flood the area.
A cosy stone fireplace and solid fuel stove take pride of place in the open-plan living/dining area. Separated in two, a large wooden dining table and chairs can be found at one end of the room, while three inviting couches can be found at the other. Patio doors connect this room with the outside patio.
Two of the bedrooms, including the en suite master bedroom, and a bathroom can be found on the lower floor, while the remaining bedrooms (one of which is en suite) and another family bathroom are located on the first floor of the property.
