The downstairs WC is off the utility room and houses the boiler and hot water cylinder.

The open plan dining sitting room is a real feature of this property, with Karndean flooring and an exposed brick chimney breast with dual aspect cast iron multi fuel burner in the centre separating the two areas. This room has an abundance of light, with a window to the front elevation, full length windows with shutter blinds to the rear looking out into the garden, ceiling windows and French doors opening out into the garden. The sitting area has an oak beamed ceiling and bespoke handmade ash spiral stairs leading to a spacious gallery landing and study area.
