The staircase leads up to a landing with a skylight and two large double bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes and ensuites. Each bedroom has a velux window and further windows, some exposed brickwork and wooden beams.
There are also two large walk- in storage cupboards in the landing. One of which has the potential to be used as a direct entrance into the attached barn should you wish to extend.
Each bedroom has their own ensuite with shower, sink and WC very convenient for running a B and B (which the current owners have done previously).
The attached barn measures 36 metres on the ground floor and has two storeys. This could be used to extend the main house or to create an independant gite.
There is enough space inside the barn to park two vehicles if required.
