To the first floor there are three further bedrooms including a magnificent master bedroom suite with fitted dressing room and luxurious limited en-suite shower room with high quality contemporary suite. The master bedroom also benefits from the delightful open aspect across the valley.
Externally the wonderful landscaped gardens also take advantage of the tremendous views over the surrounding fields and countryside with the elevated rear garden including a range of well stocked flower and vegetable beds interspersed with pathways, patios and sitting areas together with a timber decking area, a useful garden shed and even a small polytonal.
