On the ground floor is a combined reception room and separate fitted kitchen, to the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom.

A barn conversion of character where plentiful use of wood adds character and natural warmth – there is Canadian Maple narrow wood strip flooring in the L shaped combined sitting and dining room which complements the open fireplace with Victorian style pine mantlepiece, the pine staircase has exposed treads and open risers and leads to the first floor landing and three bedrooms, all of which have narrow strip wooden floorboards. There are pine skirting boards, wooden arched topped window frames with double glazing (including the impressive large window to the former barn’s wain door) and a wooden part glazed back door. Added to this there are lovely deep window cills, an exposed beam and on the first floor, pine paneled doors with brass beehive knobs. The kitchen fittings were replaced in 2016 and offer oak fronted cabinets, laminate worktops with cream rectangular splashback tiling and a traditional Belfast sink.
