On the first floor there are two bedrooms, the master with walk-in wardrobe and there is a super new bathroom. Outside the landscaped west facing garden complements the interior of the house with a limestone patio leading down to a manicured lawn and at the end of the garden a cleverly designed seating area. this area could also potentially provide the space for a home office/studio subject to the necessary consents.
