The design of the property is a one of a kind, split level layout with spacious rooms throughout and versatile accommodation.

Within this room there is quality wooden flooring, exposed timber beams to the ceiling, a feature fireplace as well as French doors that open up onto the beautiful back garden showcasing views of open fields beyond.
