As you enter the house into a formal hallway you are met with access to the sitting room, dining room and kitchen along with a dog leg stairs leading to the first floor. The well proportioned kitchen has quarry tiled flooring, a range of wall and base units, ample space for appliances as well a door leading to the rear garden/seating area. The sitting room has a decorative fireplace and exposed floorboards (pretty sash windows) whilst the dining room has a brick fireplace with a multi-fuel burning stove. The family room / bedroom features a spacious cupboard housing the gas boiler (plumbing for a shower) the downstairs cloakroom, access to a second attic space along with access to the rear garden. There is also a study off the sitting room with access to the cellar.
On the first floor the master bedroom has a built-in cupboard, exposed pine floorboards and an en-suite bathroom. There are a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. From the landing there is access to the larger attic which obtained planning permission in January 2016 to be converted into a bedroom, dressing room and en-suite.
