On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, a study, bathroom and a cloakroom. There is also considerable scope to extend should additional space be required (subject to all necessary consents and approvals being obtained).

The house is set well back from the peaceful lane on which it is situated with a long garden to the front where the driveway provides off road parking for numerous vehicles. The rear garden is delightfully secluded with a large expanse of lawn and various seating areas ideal for alfresco dining end entertaining.
