Inside, the detached property is well-presented and decorated to enhance its original period style. The sitting room is bathed in natural light from its large bay window and its focal point is a coal-effect gas stove. The second reception room has an electric fire and a bay window and would work equally well as a formal dining room. The large kitchen/dining room has a traditional look and an open-plan layout. The kitchen has a wide range of white-fronted units, contrasting work surfaces and a handy breakfast bar. An archway leads to an area for dining and a door opens out directly to the rear garden.
