The kitchen features a range cooker, integrated dishwasher, and space for a free-standing fridge / freezer. Ample storage is provided by a good array of cupboards and drawers and the kitchen is completed with a ceramic sink.

Ascending the stairs to the first floor, the main bedroom is dual aspect, the second bedroom is a spacious double and both rooms benefit from built in storage space.
