Property description

The property is approached along sweeping tree lined driveway providing access to this and two other properties.

Immediately on the left is the cloakroom and on the right are double doors leading to the sitting room. This is a full length room with windows to the front and rear and is dominated by the stunning inglenook style fireplace with wood burning stove and continues with the stunning tiled flooring.

On the left is the snug or, if you prefer, a dining room again with a full height floor to eaves window overlooking the rear garden and another smaller inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove.
