You enter into the spacious hallway, which features ceiling coving and a tiled marble floor. To the right of this space are the interconnected drawing and dining rooms. With its high ceilings, polished timber floor, and sash window with working shutters, it feels elegant, yet the current owners’ neutral colour scheme and modern furniture ensure it’s also a bright space.

The dining room has a polished timber floor, and has space to fit a large dining table, perfect for gatherings. This leads through to the kitchen and breakfast room, which has granite worktops, a marble tiled floor, and a large centre island, while double doors lead out to the back garden.

Outside, the back garden has a decking area perfect for sitting outside, as well as a lawn and flower beds, while to the front there is space for two cars in the driveway.
