The property, which has been in the same family since 1934, constitutes a valuable source of historical architecture and is listed as Grade II.

There are four ground floor reception rooms, orientated with views over the garden and grounds and beyond. The property is of 'L' shaped design with an inner hall serving a traditional kitchen, boot room and cloakroom.

To the rear of the house is a double-bay cart lodge with an adjoining studio and a delightful detached building of thatched roof design, providing storage facilities and offering excellent potential for a variety of uses, subject to the necessary planning consents. The gardens and grounds lie predominantly to the north and west of the house, providing extensive lawns interspersed with a variety of trees and shrubs. To the rear is an area of woodland providing a 'nature trail', making this an ideal home for those with outdoor interests. All in around 2.6 acres.
