The attractive open entrance porch welcomes you into a central hallway leading all the way through the house to double doors opening to the south facing garden.
There is a vast drawing room with wide picture windows and a wood burning stove. The dining room features a box bay window and a fireplace and both rooms enjoy fabulous southward views of the garden.
Accessed from the dining room is the family kitchen which is comprehensively fitted with solid wood cabinetry and granite works tops. The kitchen features a gas AGA and built-in Miele appliances with a central area large enough for informal everyday dining.
Double doors from the kitchen open into a fabulous orangery with bifold doors opening to the terrace. A study/playroom is off the kitchen to the front.

Outside the property is approached off the country lane via a picturesque five-bar gate and driveway. There is ample parking to the front and a mature hedge at the boundary affording good privacy.
There is a detached stone barn which is a generous and versatile space with a first floor. Subject to the necessary planning consents it could provide secondary accommodation or a home office.
The gardens are a fabulous feature, measuring about 1.34 acres. An area of terrace extends from the orangery, which is ideal for al fresco dining, entertaining and relaxing.
The gardens feature substantial lawns and distant views to the south. There are numerous mature trees and shrubs throughout this lovely garden with a treehouse and tall mature hedges at the boundaries offering excellent privacy and seclusion.
