The kitchen is situated at the end of the inner hall, with cottage style fitted wall and floor units, electric hob, space for washing machine, an integrated electric cooker, wall mounted boiler and further scope to improve. A cloakroom and useful hall cupboard are next to the wide staircase that leads up to the three double and one single bedroom. Access to the rear garden is via the inner porch.
