A solid wood front door with glazed inserts opens into a central hallway which extends through the property, providing access to all the principle living and bedroom spaces. The current configuration is set out so that the living spaces are set to one side of the property and the bedroom/bathroom spaces to the other.
The main sitting room is currently set to the front of the house and benefits from a fireplace and bay window overlooking the drive.
Adjoining the sitting room is a formal dining room with a window overlooking the grounds to the side and a door leading through into the kitchen/breakfast room.
The double aspect kitchen/breakfast room is a significant feature of the property, being formed from the extension to provide an impressive space which can be used for day-to-day living. The kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units and further benefits from a walk-in larder/pantry. A small lobby area from the kitchen/breakfast room leads to a separate cloakroom and a door opening out onto the side aspect.
The double aspect master bedroom offers a good size space and is currently set at the back of the property, overlooking the side and rear aspects.
