Littleton House forms the major, central part of this building; constructed of colour wash brick beneath tiled roofs. The main house dates from the late 18th century with some additions made in the 19th century. A Grade II listed house, it offers elegant and spacious accommodation on three floors with a cellar.

The impressive symmetrical façade, central doorway at the top of a flight of stone steps and porch with Ionic columns gives the house an imposing entrance. The reception rooms lead off a notable central hallway. The house retains many original features including flagstone floors, sash windows, panelled doors, high ceilings with cornicing, some original fireplaces and a staircase with polished rail and an open balustrade. A picture sash window on the landing overlooks the rear garden.

The accommodation comprises, in brief, kitchen/breakfast room, drawing room, sitting room, dining room, cloakroom and cellar. The first floor has a generous master suite with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, three further bedrooms, family bathroom and a useful room currently a study but which could be a nursery or single bedroom. The versatile second floor space has three further bedrooms and an open-plan living space (ideal for teenage children or those seeking a separate space to work from home). Overall the property represents one of the most important houses within the village with glorious views over the walled garden from the rear. The present owners have continued to improve the house and it is maintained to a very high standard throughout.


Approached along a shared driveway to a pillar gated access on to a gravel driveway and turning area in front of the house where a splendid Japanese acer dominates a central flower bed. There is a detached double garage within the front boundary, all enclosed by brick walling.

The rear garden is beautifully landscaped and has an attractive paved sun terrace with various raised beds and borders, planted with a wide range of shrubs. Steps lead onto a gravelled path and paving stones that meander across the lawn. Throughout the garden there are sections of lovely landscaped gardens with mature planting. The gravelled path passes under a wrought iron pergola and is flanked by a beautiful lawn area, again with numerous shrubs and trees all set within an imposing high brick wall boundary beyond. Through a timber gate in the wall is an area of lawn planted with fruit trees and flower border also walled with rear access.
