A handsome and fully restored Regency style country house with an outstanding leisure complex, standing in a private and mature garden setting.

Dating from the late 18th century the Hall is constructed of brick with white painted rendered elevations under a slate roof.

The accommodation is arranged on 2 floors with the benefit of oil central heating and double glazing.

Off the hall are the principal rooms including the drawing room with marble fire surround housing a multi-fuel Aga stove, quarter panelled walls, decorative cornice and window shutters. On the opposite side of the hall is an elegant dining room with decorative cast iron fireplace on a slate hearth beneath a marble surround, hand painted cornice and parquet floor.

Across the back of the house is a spectacular fitted kitchen by Clive Christian with wall and base units under bevelled slate work surfaces which is replicated in the adjoining utility room.
