Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This beautiful ragstone building was originally one of the two gatehouses which served the main manor house residence that sits a short distance away. The building has been delightfully extended in a style that fully compliments the original to create a wonderful family size home that offers contemporary comforts coupled with period styling.

The plot is quite generous, which has allowed the detached studio building to have been constructed. This flexible structure has served as an Office / Therapy and Consulting room. It is considered suitable for adaptation to a residential annexe (subject to change of use planning permission).

There is a large parking area courtyard and a further two areas of garden that includes a beautiful wooden chalet that is also an ideal venue for outside entertainment.
