At ground floor level approached via a recently installed double glazed front door is the entrance porch area. A good sized space for bikes, pushchairs etc. This leads into the inner hall which opens into a communicating lounge and dining room and large kitchen breakfast room. Off the kitchen is a utility room and a further bathroom. With an integral garage and off-street parking and gardens to the front side and rear the plot size is large and to the rear is a large greenhouse which could easily be converted into a wonderful home office space, summer house or similar.
