Heading up a further staircase to the second floor there is an expansive landing that could lend itself to many uses that leads the way to the elegant principal bedroom. From here there are some spectacular views over mature woodland, neighbouring gardens and snippets of Batford Springs Nature Reserve.

Externally the property sits back from Station Road with a driveway providing off street parking for several vehicles. There is a well loved mature rear garden that has an array of established plants, shrubs and trees.
