The sitting room has a Victorian open fireplace, and an open archway leads to the dining room which has a multi-fuel fire with back boiler supplying the central heating, and built-in storage cupboards. A superb kitchen/breakfast room features a vaulted ceiling with skylights, a coal fired Aga cooker range which provides hot water and supplies 2 radiators to both bathrooms, Belfast sink, appliance space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, space for upright fridge/freezer, pantry, and double glazed French doors lead to the rear garden. There is a downstairs fully tiled shower room with WC, pedestal wash hand basin, and shower cubicle. From the reception hall, stairs lead to the first floor landing with access to loft space. Bedroom 1 enjoys dual aspect windows with outstanding views across open countryside, and a fully tiled en-suite bathroom with panelled bath, WC, pedestal wash hand basin, and ladder rack style radiator. The double sized second bedroom has outstanding views, and bedroom 3 has a built-in cupboard.
Outside, the property stands in an elevated position, with the front garden having a low retaining boundary wall, raised gently sloping lawn, and a driveway provides ample parking leads to the side of the property where there is a log store and a 5-bar farm gate gives access to the rear garden. The rear garden which is neatly maintained and adjoins open countryside is laid to lawn with raised beds, paved patio, fruit cage, timber garden shed, and to the rear section of garden there is a covered outdoor seating area.
