French doors with full height double glazed panels have been installed to both the dining room and breakfast area providing access to the enclosed courtyard rear garden.
There is a good quality kitchen with a range of base and wall units with natural light from the glazed mono-pitch roof above the breakfast area. At first floor there are three good sized bedrooms and a fully tiled walk-in shower room.

The entrance porch steps up through a semi-circular brick arch with projecting creasing tile details.

The solid Oak floor continues into the well-lit front sitting room which features a large bay window to the front aspect and deep-set plaster covings. There is an attractive fireplace with exposed brickwork and minster style surround housing a traditionally styled gas stove which provides the look and feel of a wood burner but without any of the necessary labour that comes with maintaining a solid fuel burning appliance. Neutrally decorated with wall-lights, pendant light fittings and made-to-measure fitted wooden blinds this makes a comfortable room.
Kitchen / Breakfast Room (5.20 x 2.96m)
A part glazed Oak door leads from the entrance Hall into the kitchen / Breakfast Room which has been sympathetically extended and incorporates glazed ceiling providing good natural lighting. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of off-white wall and floor units with Oak work surfaces and a Butler style sink.

Dining Room (4.86 x 2.88m)
The dining room is accessed via internal French doors from the kitchen creating a nice link between the preparation areas and the entertaining space.
The open fireplace is fitted with a beautiful cast iron insert and surround with tiled hearth and there are glazed French doors leading to the courtyard garden together with top lights and a casement window to the chamfered rear wall; all of which help to provide further natural lighting to this delightful room.
Cellar (3.90 x 2.43m)
A solid Oak door leads from the hallway down to the cellar which has power and lighting and a small UPVC window to the front aspect providing a great storage space for non-perishable goods.

White spindle balusters with Oak handrail lead up the stairs to the first-floor landing. Neutral carpet has been fitted to the treads and risers of the stairs and flows through the landing into all principal rooms.

Master Bedroom (4.64 x 3.69m)
