Upon entering through the part-stained glass door with side panels, you're greeted by an entrance lobby that boasts tiled flooring and a glass roof, filling the space with natural light. A door leads to a convenient storage room.

Nearby, a wood-panelled door opens to the home office or study, providing a serene space for work. The room is generously lit by a full-height sash window with shutters that overlooks the front garden and a neighbouring park.
The sitting room, a haven of elegance, features a full-height sash window with shutters that frames views of the front garden and park. A magnificent open fireplace takes centre stage, complemented by a marble hearth and surround, as well as a decorative wood surround and mantlepiece.

Stylish wood flooring spans the room, accompanied by picture rails, moulded coving, and a ceiling cornice that amplify its grandeur. An archway gracefully connects the sitting room to the dining room, another spacious reception area.

Wall units and a boiler set into a recess optimize the functionality of the room. A part glazed door connects to the rear garden, and a window to the side ensures ample light. From the utility room, a door opens to a self-contained area that could serve various purposes, such as ancillary accommodation if desired. The kitchenette within this area has a stainless-steel circular sink unit, a two-ring halogen hob, and fitted wall units. A glass door leads to a wet room, which encompasses a wash hand basin, a close-coupled WC, and a shower area with splash back panels and a glazed screen.
