The property is entered through a porch with original mosaic floor and from there into a very welcoming reception hallway with feature staircase. There is a very spacious formal lounge with a truly magnificent marble fireplace at its focal point with decorative detail as well as a box window overlooking the front garden. There is a superb breakfasting size kitchen with a range of wall and floor mounted units and integrated appliances. The kitchen in turn has a door that opens up onto a very useful utility room that also has a walk-in storage cupboard.
