Description

Inside, an inviting hallway leads you into a characterful living room with plenty of space to relax or entertain. The big windows, generous ceiling height and pale floorboards keep the room light and French doors in the far wall open into a sheltered courtyard. Gloriously airy in the summer the whole downstairs area has plenty of living space. Even on dark winter nights, when you’re enjoying the warmth of the wood burning stove, exterior lighting floods the garden to extend the feeling of space. Past an arched recess, the bright and cheerful kitchen has windows running the length of the south wall and has honey coloured units with matching work surfaces running along two walls. The freestanding multi fuel cooker could stay subject to negotiation, as could the under counter fridge, and plumbing for a washing machine is already in place for you.

At the top of the stairs, the spacious bathroom is stylishly decorated and there is a Triton Opal 3 shower above the bath. The central door in the end wall opens out to the second tier of garden which has steps to the kitchen and enough room for al fresco dining. Open to the south, this is a sun trap all day, so there is a gazebo for shade and steps from this level rise to the back of the garden with space for seating from which to admire the castle views and the sunsets.

Returning to the house, the first floor has access to the attic. The restful double bedroom at the back looks over the garden and has fitted shelving. At the front, the master bedroom spans the full width of the house and with open views, this room is not over looked, so it is unusually bright as well as private.

Location
