A four-ring gas hob is set into the beautiful elm counter top which is a feature of this unusual kitchen. The kitchen also comes equipped with an under counter fridge and is plumbed for a dishwasher. Warm terracotta tiles add to the rustic feeling of this room.  The kitchen leads onto a back kitchen where the freezer is located. This space has a glass roof and is ideal for starting flower and vegetable seeds and growing tomatoes and cucumbers

The downstairs bedroom has a beautiful settle bed handcrafted from solid timber and is a very cosy place to sleep. This room also serves as a library and has a wall of shelving in a style similar to the settle bed.

At present the remaining walls are papered in 1940’s show and film music manuscript. This motif continues up the open wooden staircase where the facing wall is papered with the covers of these manuscripts in the faded colours of the era. Upstairs are two good sized double bedrooms, and all have solid wood floors. The main bathroom with a feature corner bath completes the accommodation for this beautifully maintained home. An added bonus to this house There is a new oil-fired condenser boiler in a shed outside, and this provides efficient heating for the house
