The property is accessed by electronic gates and a curved drive takes you to the front door.
A pleasant and private sitting area is in front of the main door and this secluded spot is surrounded by topiary trees and a waterfall.
Under the house is a large area that at the moment is divided into a large garage with parking for two cars, storage room, utility room/ summer kitchen, boiler room, wine cellar and wood cellar.
The new owners could keep the layout as it is or if they needed more space they could create living accommodation either for themselves, family and friends or to rent out as a holiday let.
The sous-sol can be accessed either from the main house or through the garage doors at the back. This makes it ideal as separate living accommodation.
When entering the house through the front door you find yourself in a useful hallway which is dominated by an elm staircase that has been handmade by a local artisan. The stairs take you up to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
On the right of the hall there is a large open reception room and dining room.
