Adjacent is the boot room, which could be plumbed for a shower room. The large, dual aspect sitting room has French doors opening to both the courtyard and garden. It has a multi-fuel stove set into a stone fireplace. The generously proportioned, open-plan dining room/kitchen and garden room provides a flexible hub being light and spacious with direct access to the sunny rear walled garden.

The secluded 0.4 acre garden to the front of the house is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of fruit and ornamental trees, it is enclosed with a native hedgerow. To the rear is a south-facing, walled and gravelled courtyard.

Across the track, the 4.3 acres of land has been divided into four stock-proof fields and a small orchard. There is a steel-framed detached agricultural building, constructed in 2015 (15m x 7m) that can be used for a variety of purposes. It has two sets of double doors (into two separate fields). There is a concrete floor with power, lighting and water connected. This building could easily house American-style stables or converted into a workshop/machinery store, etc.
