The drawing room has exposed ceiling timbers and a large brick fireplace with contemporary wood burner and French doors leading out to the rear garden. The dining room also has French doors leading to the garden. The front to back kitchen/dining room, with a range of fitted cupboard and appliances, has views to the front and rear. Most of the ground floor has hardwood distressed oak floors. All the bedrooms have lovely views of the gardens and grounds.
Outside, the property is approached via an electronically operated gated entrance with a circular gravel driveway leading to a parking area, a large detached English Heritage oak triple bay garage and a separate detached garage. To the side there is a large open bay barn.
The gardens are a particular feature of the property and include a large patio, pathways and lawned gardens surrounding the property with well stocked flower borders.
Beyond the gardens there are stables and a manege which leads down to the paddock, passing the orchard. There is a detached outbuilding, currently housing the gym and indoor spa/jet swimming pool, which offers potential to use as an office/studio or granny annexe (subject to the necessary planning consents). In all the property extends to about 4.96 acres.
