This leads to the main hallway in the house which provides access to all reception rooms, kitchen and stairs to the first floor. To the front aspect you find a bright dual aspect sitting room with feature log burner fireplace with Bath stone surround. Further along the hallway a lounge again with feature log burner fireplace and stripped wooden floors provides a great TV room or snug. To the rear aspect of the property is the real heart of the home with dining room and kitchen diner.

In the front garden the path to the house is decoratively lined with Topiary arches leading to the entrance porch. The garden is laid to lawn with large established beds, shrubs, small trees and pond. There is level off-street parking for one vehicle although this could be extended to accommodate another. The current owners have successfully had planning permission permitted to extend the current accommodation by way of extension to the dining room to enable a new double bedroom to be built to the first floor.
