From the parking area a wide, block paved path runs along the northern side of the house to an oak front door, which opens into a spacious entrance porch with coat and boiler cupboard to one side. A glazed door leads from here into the main hall, which opens to one side into a dining room with fitted cabinets. The drawing room is a lovely, well-proportioned room which has an open fireplace with a stone surround and glazed doors to the front and into the adjoining sun room, which in turn has sliding doors onto the garden. The kitchen overlooks the garden and has fitted wall and floor units, with a fitted sink, double electric oven, ceramic hob, integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer. There is also an excellent size sitting room/library with an open fire, fitted low-level cupboards and shelving, and a glazed door to the garden. Off the hall is a cloakroom.
Upstairs, the landing leads to 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principal bedroom is an excellent size and has fitted wardrobes, an en suite bathroom and glazed door onto a roof terrace. The guest bedroom is also a good size and has an airing cupboard and loft hatch.
Wooden gates open onto a gravel drive and parking area, next to which is a double garage and garden stores. The garden lies mainly to the south and west of the house with a terrace leading out onto broad expanses of lawn, bordered by hedges and interspersed with mature trees and shrubs. In a secluded area of garden to the south of the house is a swimming pool with paved surround.
