Both doors open to the inner hallway off which access is gained to the living space. The kitchen, utility and cloakroom are positioned in the oldest section of the house and would benefit from updating. The generous sitting room measures and impressive 19’7, and with two windows to the lane, boasts a pretty outlook across the valley. A period fireplace forms a warming focal point.
