Many of the rooms enjoy feature and working fireplaces, elegant windows to dual aspects, exposed beams, wooden panelling and polished wooden floors.

A modern kitchen features an Aga range cooker, Belfast sink, granite works tops and attractive shaker style cabinets, it is complemented by a utility area, pantry and large family breakfast room which opens onto the garden.
The property sits behind a brick built front boundary wall, which, along with extensive planting and mature trees provides a great deal of privacy to the plot as a whole.

The gardens wrap around four sides of the main house and are laid mainly to lawn with feature planting, cottage style border, paved terracing and a large sunken firepit.
