The first floor has four good sized bedrooms, a bathroom and an ensuite.

The property enjoys gardens to both front and rear with the front garden providing off street parking. This garden offers a high degree of maturity with established plants and shrubs, and path leading to the front door. There is a further gate which leads to the lane at the side of the property. The front garden is partly enclosed by stone walling.

The current owners have carried out extensive works including landscaping the rear garden, and this now provides an open plan space with a patio adjacent to the house, lawn beyond, and offers a high degree of seclusion. Double gates lead into the rear garden and provide additional hard standing to the car park space in the front garden.
