The kitchen has been beautifully and thoughtfully designed with a central island incorporating clever storage and space for breakfasting.

Located off the family/dining/kitchen is the utility room which is well-equipped with ample storage along with a handy downstairs shower room. To the front of the house is the warm and welcoming sitting room with wood-burning stove. Adjacent is a study which could potentially be utilised as a fifth bedroom/ playroom. The fourth bedroom, also located on the ground floor, could be used as a further reception room if required and benefits from an ornate fireplace with wooden surround. Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The principal bedroom is of a generous size and benefits from a contemporary en-suite bathroom, dressing room and balcony with outstanding views onto the countryside beyond. The two further bedrooms are well-proportioned and are serviced by the family bathroom.
