There is a generous dining room featuring an exposed gritstone fireplace housing a double-sided stove also servicing the lounge, off which is a rear entrance lobby opening to a cloak room. At first floor there are three double bedrooms, all of which are situated to the front of the property taking advantage of distant views. One bedroom has an en-suite shower room with a traditional white suite and there is also a family bathroom comprising of a five-piece suite. The property boasts recently updated oil fired central heating, solar panels situated to the garage block and recently installed double glazing.
Standing with around one third of an acre of gardens and grounds, being principally level, the garden is mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and shrubs breaking allowing a good degree of privacy. Electric wrought iron gates to the front open to a generous drive providing ample vehicular hardstanding and access to the detached garage building which comprises 3 car garage and a separate workshop and store. There is the addition of a further outdoor store, kennels and wood stores.
