Within the kitchen there is ample space for a family size table and chairs, ideal for informal dining, leading to glazed double doors opening to the formal dining room which in turn leads to the conservatory offering elevated views over the gardens. Double doors lead to the splendid sitting room which is dual in aspect including a feature porthole window whilst centred upon a contemporary fireplace with wood burning stove. The hallway extends to a separate study/bedroom five, upgraded family bathroom, bedroom four and principle bedroom.
