The well-proportioned living room to the front boasts a large bay window along with stunning herringbone parquet flooring, the original cast iron fireplace, and decorative coving. Further decorative coving and a picture rail adorn the dining room to the rear while the reception rooms are complimented by the recently refitted kitchen which flows beyond the large breakfast room featuring parquet flooring and a log burner.

Back in the entrance hallway, the staircases are found; the left descends to the fully useable basement benefitting from natural light and the right rises to the first floor. The basement is currently used as a home office and serves as the ideal space for this purpose.
The first floor boasts three spacious double bedrooms with timber flooring and ample space for freestanding bedroom furniture to compliment the fitted wardrobing in bedroom one. Each bedroom shares access to the family bathroom, with timber panelled bath, wash hand basin set in timber storage unit, and WC, positioned to the rear and the additional WC to the front.

Outside This prominent villa is positioned behind a manicured hedge sitting atop low level walling with a paved pathway leading to the entrance door.
