Spread over three floors, the interior is thoughtfully decorated to contrast with the style of the property, from the mullion windows, high vaulted ceilings and exposed country beams, to the quirky household accessories and bright and cheerful colour schemes.
The shades of white cast over the rooms upstairs add a sleek, quality finish to the property.
The blue sitting room showcases a luxurious sofa and elegant seating arrangement, focusing on the charming woodburner in the inglenook of the room.
The second sitting room can serve as children's playroom or a fun planning room for local walks and expeditions with two large maps of the local area to help with this.
