The dining room has a lovely open range providing a focal point and the drawing room has a stone fireplace and an adjoining study.

      The first floor can be accessed via three staircases – the principal suite has built in wardrobes and an en suite with roll top bath and power shower. The remaining four bedrooms have pleasing aspects over the gardens, one with a built in cupboards.

      Outside the gardens are a particular feature of the property. Secluded yet affording much light on to the south facing entertaining terrace with additional terraces facing east to enjoy breakfast or the west facing patio for al fresco dining. Well stocked borders complement the lovely lawns and offer colour and interest all year round. A summer house at the rear is a perfect retreat and a recent addition is a superb Border Oak detached timber framed annex. Exceptionally presented, this open plan space as a newly fitted kitchen, vaulted reception space and bedroom area together with a shower and utility room. Perfect for guests or visitors to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Parking is plentiful and there is a car barn with additional storage.
