The focal point of the living room being the large impressive stone fireplace, the room is divided from the kitchen by a half wall with arched opening. The kitchen itself has a professional range cooker  and a stone pizza/bread oven which forms part of the kitchen and adds to its charm.  

A door from the kitchen leads to a back kitchen which leads out onto a small breakfast terrace to the rear.       

A corridor to the side of the of kitchen leads to the owners private accommodation with bedroom which has a large window to the side which could easily be replaced by a glass door giving independent access to the side of the property. From the bedroom a door leads to a dressing room which in turn leads to beautiful tiled bathroom with provencal ceiling comprising of corner bath, italian shower, WC and double vanity units.

Now returning to the entrance hall the downward staircase leads to a utility/boiler room with industrial washing machine.  

Heating is by means of oil fired central heating and the main house benefits from underfloor heating there is also a water softener  

There is access from the utility room to a large games room with snooker table and corner seating area. Large glass doors lead out to the front of the property with stairs to the terrace, a door from the games room leads to a cellar and another door to a room at the gable end which acts as a store room.

To the right and back of this room is a small but well equiped kitchen and to the right up 4 steps is the sitting room with glass doors which lead out onto terrace with canopy to the side of the property   Stairs from the dining room lead to the 1st floor where there are 2 bedrooms, one twin and one double and a bathroom
