Sitting/Dining Room – The Sitting Room enjoys a recently replaced picture window framing lovely views across the delightful gardens and on down to the paddock. The Dining Room is flooded with natural light from an array of windows also recently replaced that span the dual aspect area made cosy by a new freestanding wood burner set on tiled hearth. The spacious sweep of these combined rooms is harmoniously reflected in the practical riven flagstone flooring running throughout.

Family Room – Stairs from the Sitting Room lead up to the Family Room, an inviting and highly malleable space. With stunning views from a picture window again recently replaced, it offers a cosy retreat. Having a long run of fitted bookcases it offers an ideal Study and is currently used as a Home Office.
