The stunning vaulted sitting room benefits from a multi-fuel stove as its focal point with good views out over the bay. Added but the current owners the CR Smith sun room off the sitting room offers excellent additional living space. The kitchen / dining room has also been refurbished to offer a spectacular contemporary living space with the Callerton kitchen quite superb. Again the views from this room are outstanding. A good double bedroom, cloarkroom, utility room and lovely hall with vestibule completes the accommodation at this level.
