The heart of the home is the impressive and spacious kitchen/diner, which features a Welsh slate tiled floor, bespoke solid wood free standing cabinets under a granite worktop with Belfast sink, space and plumbing for a dishwasher and taking pride of place in the kitchen is the impressive four oven Aga. There is ample space for a large table and chairs and the room is flooded with light courtesy of the dual aspect windows, including a floor to ceiling picture window affording lovely views of the garden and paddocks beyond. A stable door provides access to the gardens. Off the kitchen is a very useful 'L' shaped utility with quarry floor tiles, base and wall cabinets, sink and space for a fridge/freeze, tumble dryer and plumbing for a washing machine. There is a lovely and practical quarry tile floor throughout.

Steps lead up from the main kitchen into an anteroom linking the kitchen with the sitting room. This area features a quarry tile floor, exposed stone walls and houses the boiler and additional free-standing cabinets.

The sitting room also has a wealth of period features such as exposed stone walls, beams, a stone fireplace with wood burner. There is also an old timber latch door leading to the front of the property. From the sitting room an enclosed staircase leads to the first-floor accommodation and the stone tiled floor continues into the adjoining family room. This room is light and airy due to the French doors out to the terrace and the large picture window. Off this room is a vestibule with a useful cloakroom, a further reception room, currently used as a bedroom and a door to the front of the property.

Upstairs a generous sized open landing (currently used as a study area) provides access to the four bedrooms. The master bedroom is dual aspect, offering incredible views of the valley and there is a large en suite comprising a bath, separate shower cubicle, wc and pedestal sink in white with wood effect Karndean flooring.
