A door leads to the front entrance porch. Adjacent to the dining/family room is a wonderful living room full of original features including a magnificent stone fireplace with open grate and canopy, an interesting side alcove, heavily beamed ceiling and exposed stone work. Steps lead up to a separate cloakroom with WC and pedestal wash basin and beyond, a pleasant office. The cellar is accessed via stone steps and provides a useful storage space with the original stone banks and a Worcester Bosch oil fired central heating boiler.
The stairs with half landing and attractive window lead up to the central landing with beamed ceiling from where the very spacious house bathroom and three double bedrooms are accessed.
