Originally constructed around 1920, St David's displays characteristics of the period including tall, deep circular bays, stone dressed windows and a tall, gabled roof. The property has been extensively refurbished and substantially extended within the last ten years, all within a style entirely sympathetic to its origins and creating a magnificent family house offering well proportioned accommodation throughout.

A study and a library conclude the list of separate reception rooms.
