'Firville House' was bought in 1975 by its current owners and was restored and renovated over the years that followed with great care and attention to detail being exercised. As a result, many of the original features are perfectly intact and on view throughout. The original cornicing, plasterwork, window shutters and fireplaces are just some of the original period features on display. The eye-catching double staircase which is in excellent condition results in a fantastic feature in the main hallway. Works have been done to ensure that the chimney stacks are in full working order, while approximately half the roof to the rear of the house has been replaced. Oil central heating provides heating to the whole house while a well, located to the side of the property, provides fresh water.
Access to "Firville House" is granted via a pillared electronic gate entrance onto a tree lined driveway which leads to the front door. The driveway itself wraps 360 degrees around the property and provides ample parking. The property is due south and as a result the outside space is both private and bright. This orientation also benefits the internal living and bedroom accommodation to provide light filled rooms.
