Approached via a picket fence and gate with a paved pathway flanked by well-stocked beds leads to the side entrance porch. A cobbled path and stunning folly with stone arch then leads to the rear garden. The rear garden is completely private with several delightful seating areas, paved terraces and Astro turf. The sitting room is situated to the front overlooking Castle Street itself via three sash windows with half plantation shutters and centring on a log burner with painted wood surround. The dining room has a square bay to the side elevation and fitted cupboards.
