The hallway leads you to an impressive and well-proportioned living room. The first thing you will notice are the windows to three sides drawing in light from every angle.

The terrace overlooks the beck and rear garden and provides the perfect al fresco dining spot complete with brick built wood fired pizza oven. This part of the garden is a veritable sun trap and is a very pleasant area to sit with the garden area to the rear and the pleasant sounds of the beck below. A hammock is hung on a raised patio area shaded by the old oak tree a wonderfully peaceful spot.

But back to the house, also on this floor there is a large study (or bedroom six should you need it).
