The spacious accommodation is approached from an inner hallway, opening into an impressive reception hall with period style tile floor with newly carpeted stairs and landings. Balustrade staircase rising to the first and second floor bedrooms.

There is a discreet bin store, carousel unit and large pull out larder cupboard. There is a substantial 'Stoves' cooker range with 7 gas ring burners and double oven. Windows and doors open out onto the patio and large rear garden.

A staircase descends to the basement currently utilised as gym/family room, office, utility room, storage area and family bathroom. Door giving access to step leading to driveway and storage areas.
On the first floor there are two large double bedrooms, family bathroom and separate wc and staircase to the second floor. On the second floor there are two large double bedrooms and large family bathroom. Access to loft space offering ample storage.
A gravel drive at the front provides plenty of parking and turning space.
