There is a Belling electric range cooker with an electric hob and an independent gas hob (bottled gas).

* The large utility/laundry/boot rooms offer space for white goods and further storage, along with a WC and a rear door to the courtyard garden. A large store room is situated off the utility and also houses the boiler, with another external door to the rear patio. This space is perfect for storing gardening equipment, logs, bicycles, or could be a useful workspace.

Accommodation * There are 2, very generously-sized reception rooms; the main sitting room opens from the kitchen/breakfast room and has a wonderful inglenook fireplace with Clearview wood burner and a snug nook, which makes a great office. A second reception room also has a fireplace with wood burner and offering versatile space.

* A further staircase leads to the second floor where there are 2 large double bedrooms and a family bathroom with separate wet room.
