Over the last 20 years during the current vendors' ownership the house has been improved with sympathetic regards for its original character and quality including some replaced stone mullions to match the original design with replaced windows, original stone mullioned leaded light windows have been restored, wonderful feature coving, retained internal oak doors throughout, and a superb refitted contemporary dining kitchen with integrated appliances and impressive polished black granite worktops. More recently, during the summer of 2013 the family bathroom and an en suite shower room have been refitted to a high specification featuring contemporary white sanitary ware with chrome fittings.

A stone constructed main entrance with a Tudor arched profile original entrance door leads through to an initial entrance porch with connecting oak door leading through to the reception dining room with a series of oak doors connecting to the principal rooms of the house.
