Priory House is built of brick with Wisteria clad elevations and sits well within its oasis of a garden, being protected on all quarters by established trees and hedges.

Continue through the oak door into the entrance hall from where all the reception rooms lead. From an entertainment point of view the ground floor accommodation, flows well with the principal reception rooms having glorious south westerly views over the sunken rose beds, lawns, arbour and gardens beyond. Maintained by the current owners during their fifty year tenure, Priory House has a wealth of architectural detail from the three quarter panelled drawing room with glass fronted bookcases either side of the fireplace to the beamed dining room with William Morris panels.
