The first room dominated by a bay window and marble fireplace as the focal point, high ceilings and centre rose with intricate chandelier, resulting a truly fantastic room, that will impress guests while entertaining or to simply enjoy with family and friends. The formal dining room also boasts a stunning marble fireplace.
To the rear is the kitchen, although dated it is fully fitted and primed to allow the lucky new owners to put their own stamp on a space that has enormous potential.
