From the entrance hall and to the left is the atmospheric dining room with a sash cord window to the front and a central fireplace. Connecting from the dining room and kitchen there is a lovely triple aspect garden room that enjoys fine views of the parkland style grounds. The kitchen offers a wide range of wall and base level unit as well as an oil fired Aga. Additional ground floor rooms include a cloakroom, wet room, pantry, utility room and two studies. The first floor serves four well-proportioned bedrooms with lovely views, a family bathroom and separate shower room. The property would benefit from some updating.

Outside the grounds extend to approximately 2.3 acres (sts). The Manor House is set centrally to the plot and is approached via sweeping driveway that passes through the parkland style grounds.
