First floor accommodation includes a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, four further double bedrooms and a luxuriously appointed family bathroom suite including bath and separate double shower enclosure.

The rear garden extends to approximately 160' (48m) wide and is principally laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and includes a small detached outbuilding suitable for a range of uses including storage or improvement to create a home office.

The property has oil fired central heating, mains water and mains drainage.
