Walking through the entrance hall, this fabulous home immediately introduces some of the period features and this continues in the spacious living room, with decorative coving and a cast-iron fireplace and slate hearth.

The dining room maintains the spacious theme and is a great place to enjoy meals prepared in a kitchen packed with all the necessary utilities. There is also an extension to the kitchen, hosting a perfect breakfast area and doors opening to the rear garden.

In addition, the ground floor has a w/c, a door to the integral garage and room for a small study.
