Reached by a single-track tarmacked lane, on arrival at the former stable, step inside through its French doors to find a double-aspect, open-plan living space. Comprising the kitchen, lounge and dining area, the space is all on one level and features a vaulted ceiling. Sit back and relax on the comfortable sofa as you take in the unspoiled views through the patio doors and fire up the electric flame-effect log burner if you’re feeling the chill. A Smart TV with Now TV provides evening entertainment. The bright and airy kitchen offers everything you’ll need to cook up delicious meals before sampling your efforts in the dining area, complete with blissful views through the floor-to-ceiling patio doors.
