The elegant formal dining room / family room is situated to the front of the house enjoying an open outlook over the garden. The room is generous in size, with ample space for table and chairs. Accessed off the dining room is the fifth bedroom, or what could be used as an ideal home office space.
Across the hall is the breakfast room which makes for a fantastic space for morning coffee and less formal dining.

Stairs off the hallway rise to the first floor level where the majority of the bedroom accommodation can be found. The principal bedroom is located to the front of the property and is generous in size. The room benefits from ample storage space, along with a newly renovated en-suite bathroom. Bedroom 2 sits adjacent, enjoying an outlook to the gardens at the rear, as well as having access to its own en-suite shower room. Bedroom 3 also sits to the rear and is a good-sized double bedroom.
