It is now a delightful family home, well presented and yet retaining numerous original period features including deep skirting boards, period fireplaces, detailed plaster work and sash windows etc. At the rear of the property and overlooking the garden is a wonderful kitchen/breakfast/living room, with an Aga, which serves as the heart of the house.
