The ground floor also holds a beautiful lounge with cathedral style ceilings and skylights as well.

Moving upstairs to the first floor, there is a family or games room as well as the impressive master bedroom suite with dressing area and en suite. No attention to detail has been spared in this outstanding build; all the doors, skirting’s, picture rails and staircases are finished to white oak wood throughout with the tiles being either Villeroy + Boch.
