The property itself has been subject to various additions and retains a wealth of character features with leaded light glazed windows, decorative plastered ceilings and wall mouldings with most rooms enjoying far reaching views towards the neighbouring countryside and beyond. The gardens are a particular feature surrounding the property on three sides with a mature lake (partly owned with a neighbour) and woodland with various useful timber outbuildings.

From the reception hallway a staircase rises to the first floor which provides three good sized bedrooms with a large spacious landing which could be used as a study or perhaps a further bedroom and a family bathroom. Outside the front of the property is approached by wrought iron gates with a gravel driveway with a wide parking area that in turn leads to the detached garage with a pitched roof, power and light connected. The rear gardens are laid to lawn with a block paved stone seating terrace adjoining the rear, enclosed by woodland with various paths, mature shrubs, rhododendrons and a mature lake to one side.
