A staircase leads from the sitting room to the first floor landing with access to two double bedrooms. These are both a good size and having double aspects are light and airy.
A staircase continues to the second floor where the rooms have reduced headroom. They include a sunny bedroom with plenty of storage areas and a beautiful shower room with oak flooring, a basin, wc and shower area (with overhead and hand-held attachment).
The house has a neat front garden protected by a stone wall. This continues around the side with the courtyard area screened by fencing and approached through a timber gate. The courtyard has timber decking and seating and a chalet area with a table. Altogether a great private area for relaxation and BBQs!
