On the opposite side of the hallway are three rooms forming flexible accommodation, such as a family room, a home office and a ground floor bedroom with an en-suite, or indeed, they could form three bedrooms.
The rear room forms a family room, overlooking the rear garden, and being adjacent to the kitchen, has potential to enlarge this space. The middle room forms a home office with a large window to side, whilst the front room is a useful bedroom or music room, with a large window to front and the large adjoining en-suite bath and shower room, comprising a basin, WC, walk in shower and large bath, plus an airing cupboard and laundry cupboard with space for washing machine and tumble dryer, windows to front and rear, tiled floor and part tiled walls.
There is also a cloakroom comprising a WC and basin.
The first floor comprises a light landing, with a velux window to front which allows lots of light to filter down to the hall below. A door leads into the largest of the three bedrooms on this floor, with a vaulted ceiling and a window side offering lovely views, plus fitted wardrobes, and a storage recess.
On the opposite side of the landing are two good sized bedrooms with eaves cubbyholes and storage, the front room enjoys a recessed one with a dormer window to front, and the rear has a velux balcony/emergency exit window to the rear.

Behind the garage is a lovely play area, which has a timber built tower/climbing frame with swings and slides.
