The contemporary interior design is of an impeccable standard, with a neutral colour palette designed to create a wonderfully light and airy feel throughout.

Here, the immaculate understated finish incorporates lightly-toned walls and handsome oak-effect flooring, which flows eloquently into the adjoining living room.

On the first floor, an airy central landing (with loft access) affords access to a substantial master suite and three further good-sized double bedrooms, two with cupboard storage.
