Set behind a high wall and electric gates the property offers privacy from the road and provides a generous paved driveway as well as an attached double garage.

The internal accommodation at St Ann's House is wonderfully spacious and every room is beautifully presented. A grand glazed entrance porch opens in to a wide inner hallway. There are two reception rooms, with the larger having an impressive bay window and corner aspect towards the gardens as well as having the benefit of a wood burning stove. The second reception room is also generously proportioned and again overlooks the gardens. The kitchen dining area is a wonderful entertaining space with a large island sitting centrally around a good bank of units housing a range of integrated appliances and sitting underneath granite worktops. At the far end of the room opening out to another impressive bay window there is spacing for dining. A side door leads from here to the driveway, where the bin and log stores are located. From the hallway there is access to a cellar and the wonderful staircase leads to the open, split level landing complete with original circular rooflight. From the hallway there is also access to a cloakroom W.C. and utility room which provides access to the double garage and a door to the driveway.
