The study has a sash window overlooking the front garden and fireplace, whilst the generous dining room enjoys French doors leading out to the courtyard and an attractive brick fireplace with wood burning stove. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke Chalon cabinets, solid wood handcrafted units painted and polished to reflect the classic elegance of Old English furniture, with granite worktops integrated appliances and an Esse Aga style cooker with attractive tile focal point above. The kitchen has a part vaulted ceiling, with additional skylight windows to allow in plenty of natural light. A stable door also leads out to the courtyard. The floor has terracotta tiles which lead into a hallway, with cloakroom leading off.

The spacious sitting room shows a semi-vaulted ceiling with exposed roof trusses, a fireplace with wood burning stove and French doors into the conservatory, which enjoys a fine outlook over the gardens with French doors leading out.
