The entrance porch opens to the hall, which has the cloakroom on one side, a staircase rising to the first floor and gives access to the two downstairs reception rooms and the kitchen. Both the sitting and dining rooms look out over the garden, have open fireplaces and have doors opening out to the garden. Beyond the kitchen is the conservatory, which has doors leading out to the garden. On the first floor off the galleried landing is the master bedroom which has a walk-through dressing area and en-suite bathroom. In addition, there are three further double bedrooms, all of which have built-in cupboards and two of which have fitted sinks, family bathroom and a separate WC.
There is an extensive tarmac parking area behind the house, on one side of which are a self-contained, one bedroom guest cottage and a stable block with two loose boxes. On the other side is a timber built single garage and a further two-storey double tandem garage with a first floor suite of two interconnected offices and separate WC. Also adjacent is a hard tennis court with a hedge screened viewing area. The formal garden lies on the south side of the house and consists of a broad lawn with two well-stocked herbaceous borders, paved terrace and several mature trees. In all the gardens extend to about 2.06 acres.
NB. There is a public footpath down the drive and leaving the property between the tennis court and the driveway.
