Built in 1790, with later extensions, the property offers beautifully laid out accommodation which has been refurbished throughout.

Leading from the kitchen/breakfast room is an impressive garden room/orangery with under floor heating and wood burner, which is a versatile everyday room of fantastic proportions and enjoys extensive views to the front of the property.

From the reception hall a staircase leads to the first floor where there is the master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and en-suite shower room, guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom, further bedroom and large family bathroom, as well as a large walk in airing cupboard.
