A superb open-plan kitchen/dining room forms the heart of the house which has large sliding glazed doors opening onto an extensive south facing stone terrace with a lawned garden beyond. Adjacent is a panelled sitting room and a separate reception room is accessed from the spacious entrance hall. The recently completed extension provides a generously proportioned boot room with an adjacent laundry, shower room and utility area, all with great storage. The first floor provides four double bedrooms and three bathrooms whilst the top floor is dedicated to an excellent master bedroom suite, including a dressing room, a well-appointed bathroom and a bedroom having panoramic westerly views extending as far as the Dorset coast and providing year round sunsets.
