Integral appliances include an eye level oven, gas hob with extractor fan over and dishwasher, while an island unit is plumbed with a stainless steel sink and drainer unit and has a convenient and stylish wine rack together with shelving and further storage.

The family bathroom has been updated in recent years and comprises a wet room style shower enclosure with glass screen to one side with independent electric shower. A white double ended bath featuring a chrome mixer tap, as well as a low level WC and wash hand basin set on a pedestal. The family bathroom is completed by natural stone effect tiles.
A double bedroom overlooks the walled garden currently set out as a vegetable patch and benefits from a full wall of very deep fitted wardrobes. A wash hand basin is set on a vanity unit in one corner.
The master bedroom lies to the far end of the hallway which benefits from a door opening into the tranquil internal courtyard garden. The window and door faces East benefitting from the morning sunshine.
To the rear of the property is the enclosed garden which is set out with numerous vegetable beds, and benefits from a lean to potting shed/workshop which has electricity and lighting. A separate patio area is home to the greenhouse and wraps around one side of the dwelling with French doors from the conservatory creating a fantastic space for entertaining. A gate in the wall to the front of the property leads back to the carriage driveway which centres around a raised bed. The private, gated driveway is flanked by two large well stocked beds home to mature shrubbery and fruit trees.
