To the rear of the house is a large dual aspect double drawing room featuring attractive wood parquet flooring, a Clearview wood burning stove and lovely views over the hills and the landscaped gardens which can be accessed by doors from both the drawing room and dining room. Off the hall to the front is a good sized study with gas coal fire set in a fireplace flanked by built in low level cupboards with display shelving above.
