A rare opportunity now exists to acquire and update this family home, which has been in the same family since 1969.

In the original part of the house the accommodation presently comprises: guest bedroom, breakfast room, kitchen and scullery area (cloakroom, laundry and boiler room) with three further bedrooms and bathroom.

From the original breakfast room and bedroom two there is access into the sizeable 1977 extension which created an additional staircase and impressively proportioned master bedroom en-suite with adjoining study leading to a store room, and an expansive living room with maple flooring, benefiting from an office to the west and a small library leading to the garden. There are lovely views over the open countryside from three of the five bedrooms.


Outside
