From the kitchen and the dining room doors lead to an inner hallway with steps leading up to a small landing with a further guest cloakroom, an additional staircase leading to first floor and a glazed door leading to the garden room with ceramic tiled flooring, full height glazed screen leading to terrace, and bookshelves. To the first floor the main staircase leads to a galleried landing with doors to a double bedroom with built-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms with an adjoining door and a family bathroom.
