It enjoys well laid out accommodation ideal for both easy to manage everyday living and more formal entertaining. The front door opens to the hall off which is the drawing room with its impressive fireplace, connecting to a large conservatory for further entertaining space. The attractive dining room is conveniently located by the spacious living kitchen, bespoke fitted in a traditional style with an AGA range, and a breakfast area with views over the pretty gardens to the rear. A side hall gives access to the side of the house and the family sitting room with the back hall, utility, boot room and versatile office space beyond.
Upstairs, the master bedroom enjoys a well fitted dressing room and en suite bathroom, while there are two delightful bedrooms with far reaching views to the front of the house served by a family bathroom. To the second floor there are three further bedrooms and a shower room.

This property has 33 acres of land.
Outbuildings To the rear of the house there is a range of versatile outbuildings and an attractive traditionally designed stable yard served by its own separate entrance and driveway with electric gates. This has been designed to provide 10 loose boxes with tack room, heated rug room, wash box, feed room and is complemented by a lunging ring and all-weather arena and track to the immediate paddocks. The barns are ideal for storage and extensive garaging if required.
