There is planning consent to convert some outbuildings to an annexe, stables, paddocks and a seven bay car port.

Kitchen/Breakfast/Family Room & Utility Room 
The kitchen/breakfast/family room has travertine flooring with underfloor heating and stairs at one end to an additional first floor area. The kitchen area comprises a range of base and wall units with granite work surfaces and upstands. There is a matching central island unit with a breakfast bar at one end. There is a freestanding Britannia stainless steel electric range cooker (subject to separate negotiation) with extractor canopy over, a built-in microwave and space and plumbing for a dishwasher and American style fridge freezer. There is a room for an eight seater dining table. There is a window seat to the front, and a stable door to the rear garden. The utility room has a range of base units with a Belfast sink on wooden work surfaces. It has underfloor heating and flooring to match the kitchen and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

First Floor 
Three double bedrooms and the family bathroom lead off the galleried first floor landing. This landing area has views to the front and rear and can be used as a library or additional study.

Bedrooms & Bathrooms 
Bedroom one has a refitted three piece suite comprising a WC, wash basin set on to a cabinet and a bath with shower attachment. Bedrooms two and three are both double rooms with bedroom three having built-in wardrobes and cupboards. There is a further bedroom accessed from the second staircase or from an external staircase. This room would lend itself to being sub divided to create two rooms with the option of an en suite at the far end with the plumbing accessible in the utility room below. This would be subject to the necessary consents.

The property has a driveway to one side with double gates leading to the outbuildings and rear courtyard. There is an area of fenced garden with hard landscaping and some existing stables which have consent to be converted and extended to create an annexe. The front of the property has an enclosed area of garden laid to lawn with a gravelled path leading to the front door.

Planning consent was granted for the conversion of the existing stables to living accommodation under application number S/2000/0752/P. The work has commenced but the conversion has not been completed.
