The fireplace has a gas connection but could equally be adapted to fit a wood burner or open fire if desired. The open plan reception room has sliding doors out to the rear path and gardens of the property whilst also benefitting from views across the village and countryside in the distance. 

From the central hall are three double bedrooms. The principal bedroom can be found to the front of the property looking out over gardens, bedroom two has the benefit of fitted storage and the third double bedroom has a view over the rear gardens and countryside in the distance.
