The extensive accommodation is laid out over 4 floors, providing well-presented and spacious rooms throughout.
The entrance door opens into a well proportioned lounge, being well lit with it’s full width glass panelled window, allowing natural light to beam through. The focal point and centre piece of the lounge has to be the stunning inglenook fireplace, featuring a substantial cast iron stove, exposed brickwork and natural stone hearth.
Exposed beams and natural wood flooring add to the charm and character of this welcoming lounge.
The wooden flooring continues along the hall and flows into the kitchen/diner, being located to the rear of the house. This area has been cleverly designed, with shaker cupboards along one wall, finished with wooden surfaces.
