The family room is a splendid space ideal for a large family and for entertaining, with wooden flooring, window to side and opening to a dining room with window to rear. The well equipped kitchen is fitted with an extensive range of units beneath preparation surfaces, space for range oven and built in appliances and cooker hood.

The large ground floor bedroom is a light and airy room with window to rear and side, whilst complemented by an en-suite shower. Two separate staircases lead to the first floor accommodation, which includes a generous landing area, four comfortable bedrooms (one en-suite) and a family bathroom.
