The symmetrical frontage is particularly pleasing displaying a central traditional storm porch and pretty gabled windows above.

Internally, a wealth of period features are on display including some fine beams and timbers, panelled doors and fireplaces. The accommodation benefits from neutral and tasteful décor throughout and has been subject to an extensive range of improvements. The drawing room is particularly inviting having two fireplaces, one with a wood burning stove, and French doors to the wrap-around terrace.
