Believed to have been originally constructed in the 1870s, and then extended and altered around 1910, the main house is an impressive country home offering delightful living accommodation with an abundance of character and charm throughout. The generously-proportioned and versatile living space has been well-maintained by the current owners and retains a wealth of period features such as exposed timber beams, wooden floors, feature fireplaces with attractive period surrounds, timber Yorkshire sash windows and large bay windows.

A further reception room is used as a study and a cloakroom completes the downstairs accommodation. Two separate staircases lead to the first floor where the master bedroom benefits from a large feature bay window offering breath-taking rural views. There are six further bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large boarded loft and a wealth of useful storage space.

Externally
A long drive leads from a five-bar gate, past fields and woodland to arrive in a generous courtyard area with parking for multiple vehicles and access to extensive garaging. The main house is surrounded by expansive landscaped gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn and have been carefully designed to enhance the idyllic setting. There are a variety of different spaces to enjoy the tranquil surroundings including a delightful stone terrace ideally suited to alfresco dining and entertaining. Mixed woodland with beautiful rhododendrons adds to the privacy of the gardens and grounds and there is also a substantial vegetable patch and a productive orchard. Around 15 acres of grazing land, ideal for horses, extends to the front of the property, whilst to the rear there is a large and pleasant courtyard leading to several outbuildings including a converted office, four stables, a garden store, four further store rooms, an outside WC, and a coal and oil store.
