The open plan family room is a real feature of the home, extending over 25ft, fitted with a beautiful modern kitchen with fitted quality storage units and is complemented by granite worksurfaces and an array of integrated appliances.

The second bedroom is also a generous size, which formerly was the original main bedroom and is fitted with floor to ceiling wardrobes. The remaining three bedrooms are good sized double bedrooms and all enjoy a pleasant aspect, overlooking the grounds and neighbouring countryside.

The grounds surround the property, totalling 14.76 acres (sts). The grounds are split into manageable area, the 10.5-acre plot has defined boundaries with alternative exits out onto the road, fitted with five bar metal gates and houses the 21ft8 field shelter. The remaining acreage is split into two large post and rail paddocks, the top field and middle fields. Additionally, there is a generous front and rear lawned garden with the property.
