It is built of mellow ashlar limestone at the front, clad with wisteria and roses with some brick to the side and rear under a tile roof. It has a charming homely feel and the grand proportions of a small Manor house rather than a farm house. It is Listed Grade II as of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. A pretty pillared portico leads into the hall with an ancient flagstone floor and French windows at the far end opening onto the garden terrace.

From the hall large panelled doors lead to the principal reception rooms which have a wonderful scale, with tall sash windows that let in plenty of light. These rooms provide a wealth of character and period detail, including impressive marble /carved fireplaces, attractive cornicing, fitted shelving / cupboards and working shutters.

The current owners have created a superb Kitchen / Breakfast
Room with 4 oven oil fired Aga, bespoke cupboards with granite
worksurfaces, island with Smeg oven and Siemens gas hob. There is a useful fitted larder cupboard, and beyond the dining area are French windows into the garden.
