Internally you are greeted by an imposing reception hall, which is laid with original parquet flooring and centrally leads to three formal reception rooms, a cloakroom and a striking rear-aspect kitchen/breakfast room with the added benefit of a walk-in utility cupboard.

On the first floor there are two notable dual aspect double bedrooms (one with a luxurious en-suite), a further guest bedroom, a study/dressing room and a modern family bathroom.

On the second floor a spacious landing leads to two further double bedrooms, a shower room and two large separate eaves storage areas.

Outside as previously mentioned the property sits proudly in a beautiful, mature plot measuring 0.35 acres approx (STS). To the front of the property there is a striking in & out sweeping drive, which provides off road parking for multiple vehicles. The Northern side of the house provides access to a superb detached studio, which would suit an extensive list of uses such as a games room, home gym or self contained annex.
