The extensive kitchen/breakfast room and utility room is well equipped with honed granite worktops and island making it the hub of the house with unspoilt views looking out on to the north facing paddock. There is also a sitting room for winter evenings, a family room, a gym and a study with views of the garden making it ideal for working from home.

From here there is access to the secondary landing and secondary staircase, all giving access to the other bedrooms and family bathroom. This end of the house is ideal for teenagers or guests, allowing them their own space and privacy.

"Outside, the well-established gardens are mainly laid to lawn with shrub borders and a brick pergola to the east of the property. The south elevation of the house has a wonderful paved terrace making it perfect for summer entertaining with views across the mature orchard.
