The kitchen area has a comprehensive range of floor-standing units under granite worktops and a central island. There is an integrated dishwasher, a dual-fuel range cooker with extractor over, a Belfast sink and space and plumbing for an American style fridge freezer. The kitchen area flows into a dining space that has a timber floor, beams to the ceiling and a working open fire. There is a stable door from the kitchen out onto the patio.

Just off the kitchen is the downstairs WC which also provides utility space and plumbing. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a third reception room currently used as a home office.

These bedrooms are served by the family bathroom with a freestanding bath, large walk-in shower, low flush lavatory and pedestal wash hand basin.

A second set of stairs rise from the first-floor landing to the second floor which provides a large fourth bedroom that is complimented by an en-suite shower room.

Outside - The property has a large mature rear garden that has been significantly landscaped by the current owners.
