Dating back to 1903, the property retains many original character features including stained glass stone mullion windows and exposed carved roof trusses. The property is surrounded by lovely mature grounds with winding pathways, seating areas and ornamental wildlife ponds. Internally the property, over four floors briefly comprises: porch, reception hall, cloaks/WC, galleried sitting room and dining kitchen on the ground floor.

A sitting room, breakfast room and store on the second floor and two further bedrooms with en-suites on the third floor. The lower ground floor has a self contained suite comprising: kitchen, utility, sitting room/bedroom, conservatory and shower room. The integral garage adjoins the suite and could easily be converted to provide an additional reception room subject to any necessary planning requirements.
