It has a lovely garden which backs onto a field at the rear which is jointly owned by three neighbouring properties on Manor Drive. The house has a ground floor entrance, lower ground floor living areas and kitchen and three first floor double bedrooms, one of which is ensuite. There is a large family bathroom too. The whole house is double glazed and centrally heated by mains gas. It is presented in good decorative order throughout and has been well maintained.
