Directly opposite the front door a pair of glazed doors opens to the sitting room (40m2) with wooden floor, exposed stone walls, exposed beam ceiling and a stone fireplace equipped with a wood-burning stove. A second pair of glazed doors opens from the sitting room to a covered balcony which overlooks the garden and which has fine views over the surrounding countryside. A flight of stone steps leads down from the balcony to a south facing terrace.

To the right of the sitting room a door opens to a room (14m2 - currently used as a study) with wooden floor and exposed stone walls. From here a flight of stairs rises to an attic space with potential for use as additional living accommodation / office / studio etc.
