The property offers flexible accommodation on the ground floor, with the addition of a large and light extension (completed July 2013) currently used as an art studio/dining room with its own separate entrance. It also incorporates a large, walk-in shower room and has scope for a variety of uses, having been uses for art groups and social get-togethers in the past.
The sitting room has a lovely view over the back garden and features a Clearview wood-burning stove, perfect for those chilly winter evenings.
