The house has been well maintained by the present owner and decorated throughout to offer light and bright accommodation with a contemporary finish. The front door opens into a hall with a cloak room, staircase to the first floor and a cupboard housing the gas fired boiler. A door leads to the sitting room with feature fireplace and large south facing bay window giving plenty of light. An arch leads to the open plan dining / kitchen area with the dining area having French doors to the garden. This is a good social space, separated from but open to the kitchen with a good range of wall mounted and floor standing units, electric double range oven with 8 ring gas burner and extractor above. From the kitchen a door leads to a good sized and extremely useful utility room with plumbing for appliances and excellent space for dogs, coats and boots.
