Neighbouring this, an open plan dining and kitchen area holds a classical theme and a feature fire place; brought together by ceiling beams and low lighting.

A second sitting room showcases a cosy atmosphere with intriguing wall art and a lovely woodburning stove for an added effect.

A shower room and WC sits across from this, neatly presented, with a touch of quality.

Moving upstairs, you will find another bathroom with a different over touch, neatly styled and finished with a stone design.

Across from this, a twin bedroom holds a peaceful and serene image, followed by a double bedroom that carries the same theme.
