Upon entering the property from the front, the entrance porch opens into a dining room on the left which has a window to the front aspect and has also retained the original beams to provide some character.

There is a door which leads to the utility room which has some fitted base units with a sink and drainer, but also provides 2 storage cupboards and separate pantry cupboard. The bathroom and separate cloakroom are also accessed from here which is fitted with a panelled bath and pedestal hand wash basin, and a low level WC in the separate cloakroom. The rear hallway is accessed back through the kitchen, which leads through to the sitting room which has windows to the front and side aspect overlooking the garden. At the rear of the property there is also an office, and a shower room which has a shower cubicle, low level WC and pedestal hand wash basin.
