There is a dining room and well fitted kitchen/breakfast room, providing plenty of space for informal dining, with some integral appliances, ample worktops and storage, and the benefit of a separate utility room.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a recently re-fitted en-suite facility and a walk-in wardrobe. The three remaining bedrooms, which are all of double size, are served by a re-fitted family bathroom/WC. Externally, the substantial rear garden (0.895 acres) provides a haven for children to explore and play, mainly laid to lawn with numerous tree assortments and perennial shrubs. Across the rear of the house is a split-level terrace which includes an attractive well. The front garden offers an excellent area for relaxation with another paved terrace and a pretty, country cottage garden, creating additional space for alfresco entertaining. Opening off the front garden to the North West boundary is a fabulous, recently renovated and refitted annexe/office with excellent levels of insulation, double glazed windows and both kitchen and shower room/WC. This comfortable, self-contained building is considered ideal for the running of a small business or for additional family/guest accommodation. Adjacent is a double garage block with power, light and loft storage space. The enclosed private driveway provides parking for several additional cars.
