With feature brick backwall, original oak mantle beam and wood burning stove inset on a stone hearth. Double aspect Georgian style windows; solid oak flooring and ceiling beams and replica traditional Victorian radiators.

The flooring is again quality oak with the original beams to the ceiling. The room has a rear elevation window to the garden.
