The Drawing room is an elegant room that is filled with natural light and is perfect for large family gatherings. The Dining room is to the front of the property and has original Parquet flooring and a pretty fireplace.
The Kitchen/breakfast room is to the rear of the property and has a large larder to store all those useful kitchen items, a good number of cream units complimented by granite work-surfaces, and access to a small porch leading out to the side garden, which is perfect for Wellington boots.
The current vendors have carefully created a utility area that is separated from the Kitchen, whilst retaining the open plan feel of the entire room. A spiral staircase leads to the first floor and the Sitting room.
More recently a stunning Orangery has been added to the rear of the property and enjoys views over the extensive rear gardens.
To the first floor, there are three large double bedrooms, all with high ceilings and fitted wardrobes, each one also benefits from views to the front over paddock land.

The second floor has flexible accommodation, it has the potential to be a teenagers "Den" with a double bedroom, dressing room/ sitting room and lots of storage space.
