At the far end of the house, off the drawing room, is an additional sitting room with a pretty black multi-fuel fire with marble surround, which could have a number of alternative uses. Beyond the dining room is a large porch/hallway leading to both the study, which has its own separate access on to the front of the property, to a shower room and in to a cosy snug complete with a fire surround currently housing a freestanding gas burner. There are three bedrooms with bedroom one having a Victorian fireplace with painted wooden surround and a bathroom on the first floor with two further connecting attic rooms on the second floor.
There are gated entrances to both the front and side of the property. There is a gravel driveway to the side of the property with ample off street parking. Access to the first floor of the annexe is located from the parking area. To the rear of the property is a paved courtyard with a small outbuilding.
