The property has been sympathetically restored and improved with a thorough attention-to-detail in retaining much of the house's original character, specifically the ornate ceiling covings, wood paneling, picture and chair rails, fireplaces, floors and open staircase. The home also benefits form modern conveniences of double glazing, gas central heating and mains water and drainage.
A south facing sun room to the front of the house is a light and airy welcome to the home. Of good dimensions and overlooking the gardens this is an ideal place for relaxing with a book. From the sun room the front door leads to a large and dramatic reception hall. Original panelled walls and an open staircase give a sense of space and timeless style. To one side of the hall is the sitting room with a south facing bay window and a feature fireplace with built in bookshelves and two charming windows above. There is an additional reception room to the rear of the house with dual aspect windows and another feature fireplace. Currently used as a snug, it could easily work as a ground floor bedroom, particularly with the benefit of the neighbouring cloak room. There is a large dining room roughly 14' x 14' providing ample space for a large dining table. This room also has the benefit of a west facing bay window allowing the afternoon and evening sun to flood in. Floor to picture-rail height panelling harks back to the origins of the house and adds to the formal feel of the dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room to the rear of the house has a range of quality custom built hardwood cabinetry with an inset Belfast sink, four oven Aga and built in fridge. Glazed French doors open to the garden from the breakfast room, whilst there is an adjoining large larder and utility room.
Upstairs there is a large open landing leading to four good size bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, in addition to the large family bathroom which features a freestanding claw-foot tub.
