The entrance leads to a traditional layout with a central staircase dividing the kitchen and dining room (or snug/office) living space. To the right is the living room which is not only large enough to have a dining area but has a door to the garden and a wood burning stove. To the left of the kitchen is a recently added boot/utility room which has the potential to be used as an office. There is oil fired central heating throughout the property.

The kitchen comprises of dual aspect windows ensure it is an inviting space with room for appliances and plenty of cupboards.

Outside the front garden is the perfect place to sit and admire the mature garden and surrounding countryside which is bordered with traditional stone walls and hedging. There is a small patio outside the living room, with the rest of the garden being laid to lawn. There is a generous sized brick built traditional shed with slate roof which could be turned into a garden office, workshop or hobby room.

Upstairs, there is a master bedroom and two double bedrooms one with a charming period fireplace and above stairs storage cupboard. There is family shower room with a large double shower (which could be converted to a bath).

This truly is a wonderful home full of character and charm, which also offers opportunity to improve.
