The ground floor
Step inside, through the beautiful sage green entrance door and into the beautiful lounge. Pause and admire your surrounds. Beautiful solid oak floors flow through the ground floor, chosen to suit the original character of this period cottage. Note the thickness of the wheels and the deep window sills. Take in the open countryside view, looking out towards Clougha. A beautiful multi-fuel stove sits backs into the exposed stone chimney breast, creating a warming focal point to the room.
Next is the dine-in kitchen, beautifully fitted with custom made bespoke solid wooden units, hand painted in cream. It's a stunning kitchen - integral appliances include the built-in dishwasher, double Bosch gas oven and induction hob. It's a social room and one which also has the country cottage feel. How many kitchens can boast of having a wood burning stove?
The lower ground floor
Take the stairs from the kitchen and drop down to the lower ground floor. How would you use this area? Would it be a spacious 3rd double bedroom or would you use it as a 2nd living area?
