The master bedroom is a really spacious area, with a panelled ceiling, separate dressing area and a further space that could easily be converted to accommodate an en-suite bathroom (STNC). All bedrooms are neutrally decorated and have fitted carpets, and one has its original fireplace. The family bathroom situated on this level has a freestanding bath, a separate shower cubicle and a pedestal hand basin. There is a separate WC and also a very generous and easily accessible eaves area providing excellent storage space.
