The residence has been fully refurbished and modernised over recent years and has benefitted from a ground floor orangery style extension which has created a lovely informal, vaulted dining area which leads off the impressive kitchen.
The house has modern appointments throughout which have been carefully fitted to blend well with the character of the original house with a wealth of internal timbering to all floors.
