There are two further ground floor bedrooms, one with dual aspect windows, and the other currently being used as a study with window to rear.
An attractive staircase with wrought iron spindles leads to the first floor landing with a large cupboard with light, ideal for storage, master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and dual aspect windows enjoying pleasant views through the trees to fields beyond, Velux window to the rear, range of fitted wardrobes and a door leading to the ensuite shower room with 3-piece white suite with corner shower cubicle with electric Triton shower, vanitory wash basin and w.c.

Outside, the property is approached through stone pillars (Listed) with driveway leading to a generous area providing ample off road parking. Pedestrian gates with enclosed trellising to the side and rear of the property which is currently laid to chippings for ease of maintenance and is an ideal area to enjoy outdoor dining. This area leads round to the rear where there is a further outdoor seating area and steps lead up to the garden, predominantly laid to lawn, with a variety of mature trees, fruit trees including plum, cherry and apple, shrubs and plants. Also from the front of the property is a 5-bar gate which leads to a further driveway giving access to the detached triple garage with up and over door and power and light connected with utility area with sink and plumbing for washing machine. Wooden steps lead to the holiday apartment above with a small balcony area and a stable front door giving access to the accommodation which offers open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area. The kitchen area has a range of base units with working surfaces over, inset sink, Velux window and extractor, electric wall mounted heaters.
