The living area is set to one side and offers a light open space made up of three rooms making this an ideal space for entertaining and welcoming family and friends. If it's a smaller space you prefer each room can be closed off and enjoyed as a cosy everyday living area. The main living room is set around a central fireplace with a stone surround. Sliding doors open to a snug area and morning room which has an outlook over the front gardens.
