This is an attractive large detached house providing excellent family accommodation over three floors with scope to further enhance the property if required. It is set in circa 3.56 acres of beautiful grounds with a fenced paddock, tennis court and swimming pool. EPC: F

The property is not listed, believed to date from circa 1890 and is constructed of fine Marnhull stone under a clay tiled roof. The house benefits from well proportioned reception rooms and provides spacious family accommodation arranged over 3 floors. Downstairs the large entrance hall with open fireplace flows onto the drawing room, study with open fireplace inset with woodburner and the well equipped kitchen is perfect for entertaining and family life.

The house is approached through stone gate piers leading onto a gravel driveway with parking for several cars. The drive continues past the house to further parking and a double garage. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with attractive borders. The main gardens lie to the rear of the property and comprise a variety of different zones which are well screened by the high walls and hedges that border it giving it a good degree of privacy. The outdoor heated swimming pool, resurfaced tennis court, wonderful plants and trees, vegetable garden, orchard and paddock are the perfect complement to this fine country house.

There is a secondary drive to the west of the house which leads to a large garden shed. The neighbouring property has a right of way over this drive which continues on as a footpath northwards. The footpath is out of sight from the main curtilage of the property.
