There are doors onto the garden from this room and a door into the family kitchen, which measures nearly 30ft, and has double doors onto the garden.

    A wonderful curved staircase opens out onto the first floor landing with the master bedroom suite immediately at the top of the stairs. The master bedroom overlooks the garden with a double aspect dressing room/bedroom leading to a bathroom. There are five further bedrooms on this level with another bathroom. One of these bedrooms was originally the third bathroom.

    The lawned gardens surround the house on all sides and have been beautifully landscaped over years to give space for formal and informal enjoyment. A small ha-ha creates an elevation over the neighbouring fields and allows for a far reaching rural outlook.

    The outdoor pool is surrounded by a small terrace and has gentle steps into the pool. There are many mature shrubs and plants within the well-stocked gardens and numerous trees. The tennis court is on the northern edge of the garden with a mature vegetable garden and access into neighbouring fields with a public footpath leading towards the village. Parking is offered on the carriage driveway and within the integrated garage.
