The property is divided into two with the main house a 4/5 bedroom Georgian grade 2 listed (which includes a 1/2 bedroom self-contained flat on 2nd floor with own electric meter and en-suite bathroom), and the other part is a 4 bedroom Victorian annex which we call the 'Cottage' and is currently being used as B&B accommodation.

To the rear there is a large converted barn workshop on two floors with numerous power points. It would be an ideal studio for artists or craftsmen. It is at present being used as a jewellery school. There is an outside toilet, a laundry room/workshop on two floors and two further utility/workshops.

The oldest part of the property dates back to the eighteenth century and has retained much of the grace, grandeur and character of that period. As with most older properties some improvements will be desired which can be implemented over time to the new owner’s taste.
