The main"winter" kitchen which has an electric fired AGA oven range is located on the site of the original farmhouse dairy. The smaller "summer" kitchen is just off the veranda and patio and is very useful when entertaining visitors or having a barbeque. The master bedroom and two secondary bedrooms are on the first floor and are reached by a beautiful original staircase. There are two en-suite bathrooms on this floor and all the rooms have glorious open views over the surrounding farmland.
The original granary on the second floor was recently converted and boasts a large apartment with two additional bedrooms (easily sleeping 5) and a modern family bathroom.
The landscaped gardens and grounds have several old apple and walnut trees. There is an ornamental pond and fountain. There are two paddocks with long road frontage on both sides. Further to the rear lay two large fields hedged by mature blackberry bushes. In the fenced stable yard are three stables with a storage area and a 20ft by 14 ft. foaling box.
