The entrance hall leads into the square and well proportioned living room which has a charming period style cast iron fireplace with tiled surround and hearth, attractive wood flooring and decorative plasterwork. The impressive and well equipped kitchen/breakfast room has a useful storage area housing to large walk-in pantries, an extensive range of cabinetry and drawers with matching wall mounted units and brass handles, solid wood working surfaces with matching upstands and a long breakfast bar. There is space for a range of appliances and a luxury travertine floor. The conservatory is set up as a dining room and provides access to and complete views of the courtyard garden. Upstairs, a generous landing area provides additional built-in storage and leads to the stylish family bathroom and three spacious bedrooms. Bedroom one has painted floorboards and exposed feature brick wall and ample built-in wardrobes. Outside, there is a private part-walled courtyard garden which is laid to paving with well-stocked and colourful borders. There is pedestrian access to the garage (with electric connected) and parking area beyond. The additional garden is fully enclosed and generous in size.
