A key feature of the property is the splendid drawing room that boasts a beamed vaulted ceiling and a rustic York stone floor.

The property is entered via double electrically operated timber gates opening onto a gravelled driveway that leads to the house and on towards the garage building, housing two double open-fronted garages and a large machinery store. The stunning gardens have been thoughtfully designed to provide visual interest. Outdoor lighting has been carefully placed to enhance specimen trees and, combined with patio lighting, creates a particularly attractive setting during the evening hours. The gardens enjoy a high degree of seclusion, backing onto open fields and woodland, and lawn is extensive, interspersed with delightful clipped hedging and various shrubs and trees. To the side of the property, there is a large potting shed, raised vegetable beds and cordon fruit trees. Located on the northern boundary is a pond, enclosed by picket fencing and providing a haven for wildlife.
