The whole property has been renovated by the current owner including external landscaping.

The accommodation is light and bright with principal ground floor rooms facing south.

From the hall the staircase rises to a half landing and splits with double bedroom to one side, two double bedrooms, ensuite and family bathroom to the other side. All bedrooms have fantastic far-reachiing views over the surrounding countryside. Outside the garden is about a third of an acre and there is ample parking as well as double garage and adjoining hobbies room or home office. The location is very special with walking and riding in abundance nearby.
