At the heart of the house is the kitchen/dining/family room which is a wonderful, generous space fitted with a contemporary modern kitchen (2020) with island unit, vaulted ceiling, space for a dining table and two sofas.

The utility room has a built-in cupboard housing the gas combi boiler and pressurised hot water tank, an external door to the rear and internal door to the double garage.
The dining hall is a fantastic space for entertaining with a dramatic double height ceiling and French windows that open into the garden. The galleried landing looks down from above.

The galleried landing overlooks the dining hall, creating an open and light space. Doors lead to the five bedrooms, family bathroom and family shower room. A reading area has been created with an oak framed glass wall overlooking the kitchen. The master suite offers ample space including a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom with slipper bath, shower cubicle, basin with vanity unit and WC.
