The house stands in a good size garden and is it considered that there could be means to erect a single story dwelling at the end of the garden.

The accommodation flows nicely and is ideal for family occupation or, alternatively, could be split to provide two properties, again subject to PP. There are many features to the property including attractive herringbone wood floor and some attractive period fireplaces. Access is from the rear of the property to a small hall where there are twin cloakrooms, a clue to the properties previous function as a restaurant.
