The kitchen has Neptune cabinetry, an Aga with separate summer oven, larder cupboards and housekeepers cupboard with dishwasher, fridge freezer and washer dryer and Italian limestone underfloor heating and marble worktops. The kitchen opens onto the courtyard garden at one end with a sitting area at the other end. This leads onto the dining room with views over the courtyard, lawned garden, and fields at the rear. A double wood burning stove bridges the dining room and snug/library. This leads to a useful boot room/utility and a bathroom laid with terracotta tiles. With three sets of double doors opening onto the courtyard garden, it is ideally configured for family living and entertaining. There is also a light and airy separate sitting room with wood burning stove. On the first floor is a principal suite with a further three bedrooms, a bathroom and en suite shower room. The property has been recently updated with new heating, plumbing and electrics and cast iron radiators to the ground floor.

The delightful courtyard garden is ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining, with a further area of garden beyond the annexe, which is laid to lawn and interspersed with plants and shrubs. At the rear is a vegetable plot with raised beds, Espallier apple trees, other fruit trees, an area for a greenhouse and two sheds. This looks onto open countryside with far reaching open views to the rear across farmland.
