Much of the original appeal remains and, externally, there are attractive decorative tile-hung elevations, together with walls of knapped flint. This character continues inside, particularly in the stunning kitchen/family room and sitting room. Complementing this are the modern quality fixtures and fittings which have been used throughout, together with tasteful decor. The delightful gardens and grounds are a particular feature of the property and provide a wonderful private setting without being isolated.
