The layout is very much open to your own interpretation, with just two rooms used for bedrooms right now. But as there’s a ‘very large’ games room and dressing area, you can see where extras bedrooms cam come from. There is also a kitchen / breakfast room, dining room, living room and sun room (an extension designed by the architect Adam Gordon). To the front of the house is a large parking area, with borders and a double garage.
