Having been carefully extended to preserve these period features while providing modern day accommodation.
Approached via a five-bar gated entrance to a fence lined driveway, there is an entrance porch leading into the hallway with turned stairs to first floor and door into the double aspect sitting room with an open fireplace.
A particular feature of this property is the large dining/family room with its impressive inglenook fireplace and lovely secluded views out onto a stone terrace at the rear and the vast lawn to the front.

A useful shower room off the hall completes the ground floor accommodation.
To the first floor a upper landing gives space for a study area with bedrooms and bathroom leading off to both sides. The master bedroom which is generously proportioned, has built-in storage cupboards and enjoys views over the gardens. There are two further double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom.
Outside, the property is set back from the road with a generous driveway providing off street parking for a number of cars. Leading to a main central court yard and access to the gardens that wrap around the property meaning that you have mature gardens on all sides and fantastic views from every room.
