This remarkable family home offers 4,136 sq ft of unique, flexible accommodation and stylish finishes arranged over two floors.

The ground floor accommodation flows from an entrance lobby to a welcoming reception hall which continues to a grand and spacious triple aspect drawing room with wood-burning stove and two sets of double French doors leading to the side and rear gardens. The generous dining room has views over the extensive grounds and a door from here leads to a useful garden room with storage space. A study sits to the front of the house, and has a door to the rear garden.

The extensive, light-filled kitchen/breakfast room features sleek white cabinets, plentiful storage and preparation space and a central island/breakfast bar. Magnificent views around the garden from the numerous windows in this room create an incredibly bright and pleasant ambiance. The large neighbouring utility room, also provides an abundance of storage space. A boiler room and a cloakroom complete the facilities on the ground floor.

On the first floor there is a large triple aspect principal bedroom with a dressing room and generous en suite bathroom with a roll top bath, as well as a Juliet balcony. There are five further well-appointed bedrooms, a family bathroom and a shower room. All the rooms enjoy splendid views over the generous gardens.

The house is set in generous gardens, extending to about 2.5 acres in all.

A large courtyard, with mature trees and a flower bed to one side, provides ample parking space for several vehicles to the front. A covenant affects the left hand side of the courtyard. A tennis court and a large greenhouse can be found in the extensive grounds to the right of the property.

To the rear, the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with an abundance of mature trees and shrubs. Surrounding the outdoor pool is a large seating terrace, and there is space for al fresco dining on the patio adjacent to the summer house.

The garden is enclosed by a large and ancient moat, giving the house a rarely found historic setting. The moat itself is a large body of water encompassing about 0.75 acres providing a haven for wildlife.
