About our home

Our home has been newly refurbished and has all modern conveniences. There are four bedrooms, [one en-suite] one bathroom and a separate toilet. The study doubles as another bedroom if wished. The kitchen and sunroom are southfacing catching all the sunshine. The living room has a multi-fuel stove and can be used separately from the central heating. The house is heated by an oilfired central heating system. There is a new dishwasher and washing machine and microwave in the kitchen. Our house is situated in a large site and is self contained. There is space to park many cars in the drive. Come and enjoy our home.
