The ground floor provides an open plan kitchen/dining room with bespoke built kitchen units, wood burning stove and engineered oak flooring. Further to this is a sitting room, entrance hall, utility room and cloakroom. The first floor provides 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. There is considered huge scope for further extension to the property (stnc). Sitting in a generous plot of approximately 1.4 acres the gardens and ground comprise a medley of lawns, mature trees, an orchard, kitchen garden and a concealed seating area.
