The older part of the house is of predominantly timber frame construction with rendered elevations under a pantile roof. During the 1980s a substantial extension was added creating a highly impressive vaulted living/dining room, along with a downstairs bedroom and bathroom. The house now offers versatile living accommodation, with two ground floor double bedrooms, a downstairs bathroom and shower room. In addition is a spacious sitting room, study/snug, kitchen with Aga, utility room and conservatory, which enjoys views over the garden. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a shower room.
