Grade II listed period house with a walled garden and paddocks overlooking open countryside and situated at the end of a no-through road on the edge of a village. Believed to have originally been built in 1498 and then remodelled in the 18th century.
The house was extended in the 1920s to provide a large drawing room and also in 1993 when the current kitchen/ breakfast room was added. It is well presented with many original period features including sash windows, working shutters, fireplaces and a flagstone floor in the scullery. On the ground floor, there are two reception rooms off the entrance hall. On one side through an archway is the dining room and on the other is the panelled sitting room. At the far end of the hall is the drawing room, which has windows on two sides including a pair of French windows and overlooks the rear walled garden. Adjacent is the kitchen/breakfast room, also overlooking the walled garden and has windows on three sides including French windows. Also off the hall are the cloakroom and the scullery, which has steps down to large cellars. On the first floor is the guest bedroom, which has an en-suite bathroom and a further double bedroom. Also off the half landing is a short flight of stairs to a secondary landing leading to the master bedroom, two further bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a double garage and timber stable block incorporating three loose boxes. The garden lies on three sides of the house. At the front and on one side are areas of lawn with fringing borders. To the rear of the house is a walled garden bounded by a tall dry stone wall with a broad lawn fringed by richly planted herbaceous borders. Beyond the garden are three fenced paddock.
