The impressive main reception hall gives access to two principal reception rooms with an outlook to the front and links through to a superb Tom Howley-designed fitted kitchen/breakfast room, open-plan to a large Peter Edmondson orangery creating a wonderful light-filled contemporary living area. A family room and a games room provide further informal space.

      Seven good-sized bedrooms, including one currently used as a study, are arranged over the first and second floors, together with three bath/shower rooms. Further accommodation is provided by a first floor guest suite accessed via a staircase from the games room lobby.

      A large cellar provides extensive storage space and a workshop which opens directly out to the garden.

      The property is set well back from the road on a generous plot of about 0.6 acres in total, with high hedging to the boundaries providing a good level of privacy, ample driveway parking and a double garage.

      A delightful landscaped garden lies to the rear and features a raised terrace with an impressive stone balustrade, ideal for entertaining being accessed via bi-fold doors from the kitchen/orangery and with steps down to a lower terrace and a large area of level lawn.

      The garden is well established with an attractive mix of herbaceous and shrub plantings and many specimen trees. A further area of lawn lies beyond the main part of the garden, offering excellent space for children and animals.
