Enjoying a beautiful secluded setting, the house offers flexible accommodation set out over two floors with many of the rooms enjoying pleasant views over the gardens.
Entered via an elegant reception hall, the ground floor accommodation is arranged to provide a drawing room with a bow window and a period inglenook fireplace, a dining room, two further reception rooms and a kitchen. Steps lead down from the drawing room to a study where access may be gained to an adjoining store room; this room may also be entered from the inner hallway. Situated off the kitchen is a lobby where direct access may be gained to the gardens. The house benefits from two staircases rising to the first floor where the accommodation is arranged around a spacious landing and comprises a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a guest bedroom, also with an en suite bathroom, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The pretty gardens are undoubtedly a wonderful feature of the property being secluded and stocked with a wide variety of flowering plants, shrubs and trees. They have been designed and planted to create ’all year round’ interest and may be accessed via two separate entrances. Set well back within its grounds, the house is reached via a long driveway that sweeps past the entrance and continues on to the additional vehicular entrance that opens out to a lane. A spur leading off the driveway provides access to the garage, beyond which there is a timber workshop/machinery store.
