Found at the end of a gravel driveway, you come onto a substantial parking area which offers parking and turning space of a number of vehicles.

Off the hall is the dining room which has two windows looking out over the sunken courtyard garden to the front of the property. This room would lend itself to being the third bedroom if so required.
