The reception hallway makes a strong first impression with its elegant-looking split staircase leading to an impressive semi-circular galleried landing on the first floor.

Double doors lead to the sitting room with a feature fireplace and log burner, along with French doors that open to the terrace. An archway leads to a bright dining room, while the large family room is filled with natural light from its dual aspect. The classic-looking kitchen/breakfast room has cream shaker-style units, granite work surfaces and numerous integrated appliances.
