Also on the lower floor is the study/music room, with an upright piano, which leads through to a most pleasant garden conservatory with door to the garden. Separate laundry room.

Striding Home is tastefully and comfortably furnished. The house has large windows and a light and sunny aspect with a welcoming holiday feel. Good views from all the main windows.
