The contemporary accommodation comprises a living room, spacious kitchen/dining room, utility, cloakroom and three bedrooms on the ground floor. On the first floor is a sizeable main bedroom with a large shower room and twin dressing rooms. On the mezzanine, an office area has been created.
A half-glazed front door opens into the hallway with an inset doormat to the laminate floor. The hall leads to the bedroom wing on the right-hand side, and straight on to the reception rooms. There is a small understairs cupboard and a larger cupboard for hanging coats. Glazed doors lead into the living room, and a separate one into the kitchen/dining room.
Cleverly positioned under the stairs, the cloakroom consists of a wash hand basin and W.C.
Accessed from both the hall or through two glazed doors from the kitchen/dining room, the living room is light and spacious with newly installed patio doors leading onto the rear garden patio. A modern wall-mounted electric fire makes an ideal focal point.
