Due to the historic nature of the property, there is a small section of flying freehold. A panelled entrance door with glazed insert, leads into an entrance porch with mat well and doors into a storage cupboard and the living room. The living/dining room has a tiled floor, high ceiling with some exposed timbers and features a large sash window to the front and internal window to the garden room to the rear, storage cupboards, stairs leading to the first floor, a gas fired Aga range cooker, space and connections for a separate cooker and opens through a doorway opening to a galley kitchen area. The kitchen is fitted with a range of base and eye level units, woodblock work surface with an inset stainless steel sink unit, part tiled walls and splashbacks with space and plumbing for appliances. An inner lobby has doors leading into a ground floor bedroom/study with half-glazed door leading out to the rear courtyard and a shower cubicle and pedestal hand wash basin. Also off the lobby is a cloakroom and the garden/boot room which has a Perspex roof, tiled floor, French doors to the courtyard garden and a half-glazed door out to the parking area in the garden. On the first floor there is a superbly spacious landing reception room with sash window to the front, timber panelled walls and ceiling and a feature fireplace mantle and surround and plug for an electric fire/stove. Doors lead off to two bedrooms, both with exposed floorboards and sash windows with the rear bedroom also benefiting from an original feature fireplace. There is also a family bathroom with an airing cupboard and walk-in wardrobe store. OUTSIDE The property fronts onto the pavement and to the rear there is a high wall, fence and double gate (for car access) enclosed courtyard garden, which as it faces in a westerly direction, is ideal for alfresco evening entertainment. The garden is mainly paved with some shrub and flower borders and affords the option to park a car within, as there is permitted access across the yard to the rear, from Tayfen Road.
