Adjacent to the sitting room lies the grand drawing room, the centrepiece of the house; boasting tall ceilings, a large bay window, and French doors opening onto the grounds, this room exudes elegance. A central inset log burner with a stone effect surround creates a focal point for formal gatherings.

Across the hallway, a study also boasts a bay window offering breathtaking views of the Croquet lawn and paddocks beyond. There is an oak fitted library with oak storage units below.

A breakfast bar extends from the island, while a generous alcove serves as a pantry with built-in Neff and Miele appliances. The extended rear section of the kitchen floods with natural light from large windows and Velux skylights.

Continuing on the ground floor, a utility room provides additional storage and access to the pool area and gardens. A rear entrance under a covered porch offers storage and a boot room, ideal for muddy wellies after long walks.
