The house has been upgraded and extended over the years and now provides very attractive family accommodation benefitting from a versatile ground floor layout which includes broad open plan reception space coupled to more recent additions of a charming garden room and sitting room – both of which have immediate access to the property’s lovely landscaped grounds. The ground floor also includes a well appointed breakfast kitchen and an attractively proportioned dining room.
To the first floor there are four original bedrooms, including a principal with fitted wardrobes and it's own stylish en-suite bathroom. An extension includes a private study area as well as a further dual aspect double bedroom which would be ideal as guest accommodation or equally suit those seeking a larger office or play/hobbies room.
Irrespective of the recent additions, Highlands retains much of its original character, an example of which is the spacious and welcoming reception hall which features a lovely staircase sweeping off to the upper levels.
The property sits within lovely mature, landscaped gardens which enjoy a high degree of privacy and extend to almost 0.65 of an acre.
