Well-proportioned and beautifully decorated, this family home offers spacious accommodation arranged over three floors with much character including high ceilings, attractive coving, exposed timbers, wide hallways, polished original floorboards and fine open fireplaces.
Open the wooden door into an impressive reception hall with wide wooden staircase, open fireplace with stone surround, exposed timbers and limestone flagstones. A door leads from the hallway to the ground floor reception rooms with polished floorboards throughout. The principal drawing room has an exquisite wide bay window with doors opening onto the terrace and classic marble fireplace. Next door is a comfortable lounge, also with double doors to the terrace and, at the end of the hall, a splendid dining room with ceiling timbers, open fireplace and a magnificent picture window with views over the grounds. The inner hallway runs on through towards the study, a second stairway to the first floor, a stairway down to the large 2-room cellar and a useful bootroom with doors to the rear.

The kitchen flows through a wide archway to the dining area. Off the kitchen is a comfortable TV room and utility room with plenty of storage and plumbing for white goods.
The wide staircase rises from the reception hall past a glorious arched window with stone mullions and leaded glass, to the first floor landing. At the top of the stairs is a good-sized bedroom with feature leaded arched window. Across the landing is the spacious master bedroom with enormous triple-aspect bay windows overlooking the front gardens and a perfect panorama of Blorenge Mountain. Along the landing is another large bedroom with beautiful en suite and a connecting dressing room providing fabulous full-width floor-to-ceiling storage with louvre doors. The landing leads through to two further bedrooms, a shower room and family bathroom.
