Enter the property via the canopied front door into a striking, glass fronted entrance hallway with an illuminated exposed granite feature wall.  Directly in front of the main door, an archway leads off the hallway into the dining kitchen.  To the left of the main door is a white, three-piece WC cloakroom and a large, fitted cupboard housing the electricity circuit breaker with shelving, coat hooks, lighting and a radiator.  To the right of the doorway, the hallway continues towards an inner hallway with fitted storage.  In turn, the inner hallway leads to the sleeping accommodation, the family wet room with bath and an en-suite wet room with bath.

Returning to dining kitchen, this space is of generous proportions which are enhanced by a valuated, beamed ceiling.  Glazed double doors to the garden from the dining area connect the inside to the outside while windows and skylights bathe the room with natural light.  The kitchen is fitted with a good range of white matte base and wall units with contrasting black, stone work tops.  Integrated appliances comprise electric hob with extractor fan above and oven below, fridge, freezer, and a dishwasher.  Adjacent to the kitchen is a utility room with additional base storage units with work surface and space for a free-standing washing machine and tumble drier.  From the utility room, a louvre door gives access into a boiler room where the oil fired central heating controls are located. 

To the other side of the dining kitchen, a glazed door gives access into the south facing lounge which also gives access out to the garden.  Notable features of this lovely, tranquil room include its vaulted beamed ceiling, large south facing arched window and the wood burning stove in the corner with exposed granite wall surround and flag stone hearth. 

There are three generous bedrooms within Waterside Steading, bedrooms two and three each have space for free standing furnishings and storage.  The principal bedroom suite is served by an en-suite wet room.  Fitted with a white three-piece suite including a roll top bath with shower attachment, the wet room has a separate shower, heated towel rail and illuminated wall mounted mirror.  In addition, the principal bedroom boasts a generous walk-in dressing room.

The remainder of the fully enclosed garden is mainly laid to lawn, with the area to the side of the house enjoying a good level of privacy and shelter from the house itself and also from a well-maintained hedge.  Accessible from the lounge, dining area and the principal bedroom, this area of garden boasts a large patio ideally placed for outdoor seating, dining and entertaining.
