All other reception rooms at ground floor level radiate off the hallway including two wonderful interconnecting reception rooms with bay window overlooking the front garden, a wonderful marble fireplace, an archway leading to second reception room. A patio door in turn leads to a patio area inviting you to the extensive rear garden which may well be the jewel in the crown of this property. The third reception room is situated on the opposite side of the hall. It also has a bay window overlooking the front garden and a wonderful marble fireplace.

One pathway leads to a converted garage and seclude clothes drying area. Another pathway leads down the centre of the walled garden to the rear with extensive mature trees and shrubs set in lawn and leading to a second rear garden which extends to the back boundary of the property. In years gone by this served as a basketball court and is an area that could be developed for a variety of uses and amenities. The patio area measures 6.00m x 6.00m.
