The property is approached from the road via a carriage driveway paved with reclaimed flagstones, which offers off street parking for several cars. This leads to the front door opening onto the entrance hall, which boasts the original ¾ wall Oak panelling that blends in beautifully with the Oak flooring which runs through most of the ground floor. The same theme carries through the stairs leading up to the first floor.
