The oldest part of the house dates from about 1850, when a home for the local parson was created from part of an older terrace of farm workers' cottages. A wing was added in the Edwardian period, with a further extension added to the rear in the 1930s.
Off the entrance hall are the sitting and dining rooms, which both have fireplaces and are interconnected via double doors. Also off the hall are the conservatory and cloakroom, with a further passage leading past the boot room and study to the kitchen and adjacent breakfast room, which has a secondary staircase to the first floor. On the first floor is the master bedroom, which has an en-suite shower room, three further double bedrooms, single bedroom, family bathroom and separate WC. Above the breakfast room on the first floor is the home office and the attic has been boarded and is now used as a games room and for storage.
Abutting the house is a paved terrace leading to a former stable block, which has been converted to provide a double garage and machinery store on one side and the garden/hobby room on the other. The two are separated by the entrance hall and staircase, which rises to the self-contained 1 bed annexe and adjacent (separate) unconverted bed/sitting room (suitable for a carer).
The garden lies on three sides with broad lawns decorated by flower and shrub borders and mature trees.
At the far end of the garden is the paddock, which has a field shelter and separate vehicular access. In all about 2.25 acres.
