The home features a total of three bedrooms, all of which have retained a handful of original features including parquet flooring and leaded light windows. Cast iron radiators are a new addition to this one, while contemporary furniture including a cream linen button-back stool and metallic pineapple bedside lamps lend more modern appeal to the space.

Built-in wooden cupboards and wardrobes offer plenty of storage space in a third bedroom.


A duck-egg blue kitchen has been fitted with wooden worktops and a farmhouse sink in keeping with the home's traditional theme, much like a large crystal chandelier.


The room most unmistakably reminiscent of its Tudor heritage, though, is the living room. It's designed with wooden panelling on the walls, and furnished with a velvet blue Chesterfield sofa. Various Tudor paintings are also hung on display.


Similarly, the dining room features a lengthy wooden dining table and a wooden dresser with cabriole style legs at one side.


The building sits on 0.2 acres of land and features a high hedge as well as electric double gates at the front for optimum privacy. According to the listing, it's also surrounded by "beautifully landscaped gardens", and has been fitted with a new alarm system and CCTV.
