There is a handy downstairs wet room with under floor heating next to this room and a large utility with limestone flooring. The wonderful bespoke kitchen by renowned local firm 'Cheverell Wood' is well equipped and has slate flooring. On the first floor there are four good bedrooms complemented by the modern family bathroom. Outside there is ample parking and plenty of room to erect garaging (planning has lapsed but could be reinstated). The wonderful cottage style garden is very private and established and has seating areas overlooking the lawn and planted borders.
