The master bedroom is dual aspect with an extra velux window allowing light to fill the room. It benefits from views of the rear garden and has a dedicated dressing area with built-in wardrobes. Bedroom two overlooks the side garden and has built-in wardrobes and a velux window.

A family bathroom supports both bedrooms with a freestanding oval bath, a contemporary vanity sink and a walk-in shower. The landing is flooded with natural light from a skylight above. A large walk-in loft/storage room at The Old Smithy could be converted into a further bedroom if required.


The property features two fully enclosed gardens. The main garden can be accessed directly from the kitchen and there is a patio that extends around the rear of the property. The gardens have been beautifully designed and

landscaped to offer a private enjoyable sun trap. There are mature trees and shrubs on the borders of both garden areas. There is a driveway with a five-bar wooden gate and access which extends to the double garage with electric door.

The second enclosed garden is on the other side of the driveway and offers a further peaceful environment. There is also a large garden shed.
