Setting out the tone for the rest of the property, the hallway is in need of new furnishings. The ground floor features a front living room with bay windows, a second sitting room, a kitchen and dining room. These areas could be knocked through, to create an open plan kitchen/diner.

The staircase rises to the first-floor bedrooms and contains great storage underneath. On the top two floors are six of the bedrooms.

However bedroom four is currently set out as a kitchenette but would make a single room. The rooms on the top floor make use of a Velux skylight to the landing.

The property needs a scheme of renovation and would benefit from some restructuring downstairs to really maximize space. The rear garden currently contains outbuildings and is paved with borders.
