About this property

  • This fine country residence is believed to date from the 18th century, and set in around 110 acres, in an elevated position with far reaching views over its gardens and grounds and is approached via a gated driveway.

    The principal accommodation is largely centred around the entrance hall and the magnificent galleried drawing room, with its handsome stone fireplace and vaulted ceiling. The reception rooms are served by a spacious and well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, together with a number of utility rooms.

    The majority of the bedroom accommodation is arranged over two floors, linked by the drawing room gallery, and including a charming principal suite with superb southerly views. On the first floor you'll find four bedrooms (with two having en suite bathrooms) and two separate family bathrooms. A fifth bedroom is located on the first floor but is currently used as a dressing room for the principal suite. A further bedroom can be found on the second floor.

    Externally the property has acres of grounds, including private garden, patio, and use of a potting shed for storage. There is also ample driveway parking to the front.

    Please note, photographs were taken more than a year ago.

    NOTE: the rooms highlighted red in the floor plan are excluded from the tenancy.

    There is also an estate manager/housekeeper who maintains the surrounding gardens, and can be available for other services (collection at the airport, cleaning, contact for any problems etc.) by separate negotiation.
