On the ground floor is a 20′ living room and a 17′ separate dining room, a truly splendid open plan family/living kitchen with bi-folding doors opening to a private garden, and a utility room and cloakroom. To the first floor are five good bedrooms, the master bedroom with en-suite shower room and a four piece family bathroom.
