Inside, a generous entrance hall laid with flagstone flooring sets a good tone for the rest of the house. The sitting room is a cosy, welcoming space with a log burner, exposed beams and wooden flooring, while the sizeable dining/family area is equally pleasant with exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace that takes centre stage. The kitchen/breakfast room is a highlight with its classic cottage-style look. This light-filled room has a range of cream-coloured units, granite worktops, exposed beams and enough space to accommodate a table and chairs. The ground floor is completed with an office and utility room.

On the first floor, there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom benefits from having an ensuite shower room.

The property comes with a separate annexe that is an ideal place for extended family members or guests to stay. This well-presented environment has a lovely open-plan kitchen/dining/living area, and a large double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.

Outside, the main garden sits at the front of the property and it is mostly laid to lawn, with a patio area that provides a perfect spot for alfresco dining.

There are two private driveways for the house, one at the front which is a block paved area and one at the rear which is laid with gravel and leads to a block paved driveway and a double garage.
