- 6 good sized bedrooms enjoying an attractive outlook, some with character fireplaces, and 3 bathrooms.

Gardens and grounds:
The gardens are a superb environment for children and animals, extending to about 1.29 acres to the rear of the house with lawns, well stocked herbaceous borders and swathes of rhododendrons and azaleas. A wild area to the side and many mature trees and shrubs create a lovely backdrop.

A timber cabin, complete with a sauna and spa, and a veranda for quiet enjoyment of the lovely surroundings, and a separate studio (in need of some repair) offer useful additional space away from the house.

A detached double garage and additional parking space lie to the front of the property.
