It now offers a generous amount of versatile and flexible accommodation with the main residence encompassing some 4639 sq ft, as well as a cottage around 861 sq ft and outbuildings totalling around 2,487 sq ft. It is set within its own glorious gardens and grounds which amount to just over 5 acres. Many interesting original features can still be enjoyed including wide doorways with decorative architraves, sash windows with shutters, cornicing, exposed beams and quarry tiles.

The property is approached via a long, sweeping driveway. Within the main residence, the reception hall with original tiled floor gives access to all the reception rooms. The triple aspect sitting room has a wood burning stove set in an inglenook fireplace on a long tiled hearth and French doors onto a large paved seating area which makes the most of the wonderful views and is the perfect location for an evening tipple. The drawing room boasts an original fireplace with marble surround and a coved ceiling along with a decorative architrave which matches that around the door into the dining room, both rooms enjoying southerly views to the front of the property.
