Upon entering the home, the entrance hall has tiled flooring and doors off both sides firstly leading to the handy WC to the right and the study to the left which enjoys dual aspect windows. Double part glazed doors lead into the inner hallway where the tiled flooring continues and the stairs to the first floor can be located on the left hand side with storage under. The character of the property is displayed from the original oak beams on the wall and ceiling. A part glazed door leads into the living room which boasts a characterful fireplace with stone surround and inset wood burning stove. Windows overlook the garden and French doors lead outside to a patio area which enjoys far reaching rural views. Further on along the hall you will find the dining room, breakfast room and kitchen which all link nicely together and form the hub of the family home and a wonderful social space. There is exposed stone walling and sliding doors to a conservatory off the breakfast room. Further sliding doors off the kitchen take you into the practical utility room which houses the central heating boiler and has a door to the front of the property.

The modern, white suite comprises a wash hand vanity unit with mirror above, WC, heated towel rail and large double shower cubicle with waterfall shower head. To complete the first floor accommodation is a lovely private alcove within the landing which would make an ideal spot for a desk or a reading chair.
