The property boasts no less than four reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room and downstairs w.c. and upstairs there are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom and the master bedroom is en suite. The impressive rear garden measures approximately 26m (85ft) in length by 17m (55ft) in width (maximum measurements).
