Country house with outbuildings and acreage.
The hall is approached through a substantial hardwood door. The hall is well lit with two front window and features some exposed timbers and a fine staircase. There is access to the cloakroom, the principal wing to the west and a sitting room. Also off the hall is the kitchen and a utility room. There is also a study and dining room. The kitchen showcases a four-oven AGA, set within a brick-lined alcove topped with a bressumer. Adjacent is a useful walk-in pantry, and opposite colour-washed units topped with granite and wood provide base level storage and a breakfast bar island. The kitchen floor has travertine stone tiles. Open from the kitchen is a beautiful family room featuring a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses complemented by a wooden floor and double doors frame lovely views of the gardens. At the front of the house a dining room sits well against the kitchen making for formal dining or a more relaxed open plan family area. On the south side is the home office. At the opposite end of the house the principal reception rooms are orientated to overlook the bulk of the property's grounds. A drawing room, with north, east and south elevations features a red-brick inglenook fireplace with wood burner, an oak bressumer complementing the exposed oak ceiling timbers. In one corner is a period fitted china cabinet. The sitting room opens on to a covered veranda and features a large red-brick inglenook fireplace with wood burner.
The first floor landing is well lit by a large front window. There are up to seven bedrooms although bedrooms six and seven could be utilised as an independent suite. The principal bedroom occupies the east wing featuring a vaulted ceiling and with dressing room and en suite. There are four further bedrooms (two en suite) with lovely elevated views over the grounds.
The grounds adjoin farmland to the south, east and west forming a parkland setting. The partly-moated gardens are planted with a scattering of mature deciduous trees and include a number of very useful outbuildings - a former office with phone line and cloakroom extending to 22' in length, a mower shed, a barn and a former stable. Within the courtyard next to the house is a substantial cart lodge with two secure bays and two open bays.
Immediately adjacent to the grounds is a block of farmland extending to about 7.58 acres (including the drive) with the potential for paddocks, subject to planning to change the land use.
