The main entrance to the property leads into the reception hallway from which the property has a traditional layout. A spacious living room lies to the left hand side and offers a dual aspect view to the front and side. The focal point of the room is the impressive, traditional cast iron fireplace with marble surround and hearth.
To the right of the hallway there is a large dining room, again with dual aspect. This offers similar grand proportions, and features an electric flame effect fire with marble inset and wooden surround.
To the rear of the property lies the sitting room which features a multi fuel stove which fuels the central heating system, this is set within an impressive stone inglenook, topped with a wooden lintel and finished with a stone hearth. French doors from the sitting room lead through to a South and West facing conservatory. The conservatory is of wooden double glazed construction and offers further flexible living space and is currently used as a dining room, however it could also be used for a variety of purposes.
To the rear of the property is the breakfasting kitchen. Fitted with a range of base and wall mounted storage units and topped with contrasting working surfaces which incorporate a stainless steel sink and drainer unit and mixer tap, the base units extend to provide a breakfast bar for informal dining. Integral appliances include a double eye level oven and an electric hob with extractor over, whilst there is also space for a dishwasher. There is also a useful under stair cupboard within the kitchen, whilst the utility room and ground floor WC are also accessed from the kitchen and provide external access to the rear.
Returning to the reception hallway, an original staircase leads to the first floor landing. The master bedroom is a well-proportioned double located to the front of the property, and enjoys a dual aspect to the front and side elevations with uninterrupted countryside views.
The second bedroom is a further, spacious double which is also situated to the front elevation and enjoys a front aspect again with open views. The third bedroom is a double located to the side of the property, whilst the fourth bedroom is a small double which would be ideally suited to a home office or nursery.
