Stepping inside, the hallway leads straight through to the living room, which in turn gives access to the kitchen and dining room extension. The living room is a warm and welcoming space, with the navy walls and ceiling creating a cosy and modern feel. There’s built-in storage in here and an integrated stove for cold winter nights.

A table to seat six could easily fit in the dining space, where double doors open to a large decking area. This is the ideal spot to dine al fresco or to enjoy sunny summer evenings, while steps lead to a spacious lawn area which is rich in mature trees and shrubs. To the end of the garden, there’s a utility area and greenhouse.

The single bedroom is located to the front of the house, and would make for a comfortable home office or child’s bedroom. The second bedroom is much larger, and features fitted wardrobes and sash-style windows. 

The family bathroom completes the accommodation, with a bath and pressure shower here.
