The living/dining room is dual aspect and just under 30’ in length with a wood burning stove providing a nice focal point to the room. The annexe, which could easily be self contained has a shower room, utility room/kitchen (with separate boiler), the fourth bedroom and study which could be used as a snug/fifth bedroom.
