Three steps lead up from the sitting room to the open kitchen level with dining area, which runs the full length of the house and has been equipped for the most discerning of chefs, to enable them to cater for the family needs, and includes a breakfast table and formal dining table, as well as a height adjustable hob with wheelchair access underneath.
The ground floor forms a self-contained area if required, with a mezzanine hallway incorporating a concealed kitchenette, perfect for preparing snacks and hot drinks, a double bedroom, wet room shower room again suitable for wheelchair users, and a snug sitting room with woodburner, and as with all the other floors is supported by lift access if required.

A sloping path leads up to an elevated patio area, presenting ample seating and superb panoramic views across the valley and surrounding arable fields.

Picturesque Ruthin is nearby and has a 700 year old history, boasting attractive, half-timbered buildings, mainly clustered around St Peter's Square, along with interesting shops and buildings and the Ruthin Craft Centre, which houses work by internationally recognised artists and craftspeople and is well worth a visit.
