The adjoining sitting room has a feature inglenook fireplace with an oak bressumer beam, flagstone hearth and a woodburning stove and two cupboards to either side. The dual aspect breakfast kitchen has a range of painted panelled kitchen units with a Neff oven and gas hob with a canopy over with a concealed extractor fan and recess and plumbing for a washing machine/dishwasher. The adjacent rear porch/boot room also has a tiled floor, a wooden panelled door to the side of the property and a separate cloakroom.

A staircase from the sitting room with wooden treads leads up to the first floor landing which has exposed wooden flooring and is spacious enough to use as a seating or office area. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and the two further bedrooms both have wooden flooring and enjoy lovely open views to the rear of the property. The half tiled family shower room has a white suite and a shower cubicle with a Mira shower.
