In recent years the attached barn has been converted creating a stunning vaulted room comprising the kitchen, dining and informal family room with 2 bedroom suites above. Throughout the property there is a wealth of period features including inglenook fireplaces in both the drawing room and the sitting room. The spacious and versatile accommodation, which extends to over 4,200 square feet, is beautifully appointed and great attention has been paid to combine the historical character and features of the property with today's lifestyle requirements including luxuriously appointed bedroom suites.
