A storm door vestibule opens to the reception hall giving further access to the front-facing living room and the family room, the stairway to the first floor, and to an inner hall with further access to the WC (with two piece suite), the utility room, and secondary access to the sitting room. The dual-aspect living room includes a bay window, period fireplace, and is open to the rear-facing sitting room. Set internally, the utility room has fitted units, connections for a range of appliances and offers additional storage space. Returning to the front, the family room easily holds lounge and dining furniture, and a separate office. To the rear of the floor plan is yet another exceptionally spacious and flexible public room, currently used as a sun room, with patio doors to the family room, kitchen and rear garden. The kitchen can also accommodate a dining table, whilst modern fitted units include a quality 'commercial' range cooker.
