The property originally dates from the mid 19th Century & provides over 12000 sqft of extensive & flexible accommodation. The entrance vestibule leads into a magnificent grand hallway, with a stunning staircase to the first floor. To the end of the hallway can be found the study. The formal dining room leads immediately off the hall, as does the main lounge, a wonderful room over 44' long, which makes a superb entertaining space, with a split level area housing a grand piano.
