There are two reception rooms including sitting room with feature open fireplace and a study/bedroom 5 which in the past has also been utilised as a playroom and an office. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, three of which are doubles, and a family bathroom. The master bedroom boasts fitted wardrobes, cupboards and an en suite shower room. Outside, the property is set back and screened from the road with a four car driveway leading to the one and a half garage with power and light connected. Gated access leads to the rear garden where there is a generous paved patio, ideal for al fresco dining, and steps up to the south west facing lawned rear garden about 100 ft long, laid mainly to lawn with flower and shrub borders and beds, and a selection of trees and bushes.
