The accommodation is well planned and enjoys a versatile layout, with 4 distinct reception spaces including the snug which would work equally well as a ground floor 4th bedroom if preferred, being adjacent to the ground floor shower room. In addition there is a large lounge with windows overlooking the courtyard, a separate dining room with French doors onto the courtyard, a slightly raised sitting room with vaulted ceiling and a further set of French doors to the garden.
