The four-bedroom, three-storey, sensitively-updated and refurbished house has a new slate roof. A generous extension, currently used as a dining room, overlooks a garden, well screened by high hedges and mature trees. A service pathway between it and number 7, next door, gives alternative garden access.

Tall ceilings with decorative cornices, high windows, picture rails, pine flooring and elegant period fireplaces preserve its period credentials in generously-sized rooms. A rear sitting room French door and a door in the spacious 19ft 3in breakfast kitchen open onto the garden. There is a fitted guest cloakroom and walk-in shower room on the ground floor and a first floor house bathroom.
