The downstairs accommodation offers a light and spacious living room with cast iron wood burning stove, there is a double aspect dining room with large open chimney breast, a comfortable sitting room with fireplace, a farmhouse kitchen with beamed ceiling, slate worktops an oil fired range for cooking and central heating and a useful utility room and cloakroom w/c, there is also a rear lobby area with a door to the back of the house and a small workshop.
