There is a fitted kitchen/breakfast room and additionally two excellent reception rooms, the rear family/dining room having notable vaulted ceilings. There are features of character all around the house but there is an exceptional Georgian staircase. The property has part double glazed/part secondary glazed as well as having gas central heating.
