It includes an en suite bathroom, dressing room, mezzanine and adjacent study.


A private gravelled drive leads to wrought iron gates beyond which lies an ample parking area in front of the house and detached double garage. The lovely gardens lie to the west/rear of the house and extend to one third of an acre. Two circular stone flagged terraces and sandstone water feature are sheltered by low stone walls and standard laurels; they make ideal spaces for sitting out, entertaining and enjoying sunsets. Beyond lie extensive lawned gardens which are landscaped to mirror the terraces and on the boundaries are shrubs, mature trees, herbaceous borders and a small orchard. The outlook is south and west across open countryside. Beyond the lawn is a small paddock of approximately one acre with a children’s playground, brick outbuildings and separate access from Cherry Avenue; it makes an ideal space for entertaining, family events and sports.
