The Courtyard is approached off a private drive, the first part of which is shared with the splendid, Isambard Kingdom Brunel designed Thorndon House and then on through to a rear courtyard parking area from where the property itself is accessed.
The extremely versatile and commodious mains gas centrally heated accommodation includes a long span "L" shaped hallway which provides access to all of the principle rooms. On the sheltered northern flank there is a magnificent 42ft x 27ft sitting room which has a number of twin glazed doors either leading out to and with views over the garden and beyond and also to the central inner courtyard where there is the ornamental pond and decked sitting area. There is a lovely dining room and a generous well fitted kitchen breakfast room too. Moving along the hallway there is an airing cupboard, an adjoining boiler cupboard and a utility cupboard. Beyond this a separate w.c and a useful storage cupboard. At this point, on the southern flank there is access to a separate wet room and the 5 great bedrooms, two of which have en-suites and the other 3 have wash basins. In addition there is a large 3 piece bathroom. All of the bedrooms have private access via twin glazed doors out to and overlooking the gardens and grounds or inner courtyard as does the main bathroom.
