However, with a wealth of original features it has the potential to provide an exceptionally comfortable home. The well proportioned, light and airy accommodation comprises an impressive entrance hall leading to the sitting room with its south facing bay window and fireplace, from here doors lead to the dining room and to the rear of the house is a generous kitchen/breakfast room. there is also a cloakroom on the ground floor. The first and second floors comprise four double bedrooms (the master with en-suite shower room and a bathroom. There is also a kitchenette on the top floor which could be reinstated as a fifth bedroom or additional bathroom.

Set behind a hedge to the front of the house is a shallow garden facing south, an ideal spot to watch the world go by. To the rear of the house there is a paved courtyard garden with vehicular access from Prospect Road. This space provides off road parking for a single vehicle.
