Additional benefits include double glazed windows and gas fired central heating. In brief the accommodation on the ground floor includes: Reception Hall, with Cloaks Area and Cloakroom, Drawing Room, Sitting Room, Dining Room, Study, Kitchen/Breakfast Room and side Lobby with Utility Room. The staircase leads from the Reception Hall to a three-quarter Landing where there is a Bathroom and Separate W.C and the first-floor accommodation includes: A spacious Landing and Four Double Bedrooms.
