The house retains many of its original key features having been traditionally built over a timber frame using local stone and set under a clay peg tile roof. The western half was however remodelled in the 1950s to create rooms with higher ceilings and more Georgian proportions which externally has also been part tile hung.
The farmhouse retains its inglenook fireplace, along with a bread oven and much of its original brick flooring and heavy ceiling timbers on the ground floor. It also benefits from its own cellars. Accommodation is set out over three floors and currently includes two kitchens and four generous reception rooms.
To the north east of the main house, and providing a particularly exciting opportunity combined with the farmhouse, is a detached range of traditional stone, flint and brick former agricultural buildings.
Principal rooms and bedrooms, with attractive fireplaces in some, are in the most part a regular shape and generously proportioned. The majority of windows are large and the vistas breathtaking.
Outside the farmhouse is set centrally within its own grounds with large gardens to the north and south and an extensive orchard and grass tennis court to the east.
