Perfect for family get-togethers, the spacious kitchen offers ample storage and workspace and benefits from a handy utility room next door, while the dining room overlooks the pretty garden through large patio doors. Upstairs there are three comfortable bedrooms, two doubles and a twin, all with reduced height in the eaves. Stepping outside, the beautiful walled private garden is a tranquil space to while away hazy summer afternoons, with a lawn bordered by beds, pots and climbers. There is parking for two cars.
