Inside, this house oozes class and character in equal measure, where original features blend sympathetically with modernised alterations.  The fine sitting room is bright and comfortable with a restored original red-brick fireplace and log burner. The second sitting room is also delightful and has an appealing fireplace with iron inset. To the rear of the property is the stunning open plan kitchen/diner which is extremely well-fitted with a comprehensive range of base and wall units and beautiful stone flooring.
