The Property
Rich with character, this unlisted and previously extended property is believed to have originated in the mid-18th century.
Presenting considerable interior space, the home offers traditional styles with a homely feel. Six bedrooms feature to first and second floors, with four doubles and two singles. Offering remarkable versatility, two of the bedrooms have previously been used for annexe-style living. Three of the double bedrooms offer en suites, with a top floor bedroom also benefitting from sole use of a shower room, in en suite style. Two dressing rooms further feature, as well as the convenience of two family bathrooms; with one set to the ground floor.
Take your pick for entertaining with an array of reception rooms and a great flow. Generous reception areas feature with a large music/games room, a drawing room and dining room. With views across the garden, a spacious conservatory is ideal in summer, spring and autumn, whilst a sitting room offers a cosy place to relax, tucked away alongside a private study. In keeping with the character of the home, a kitchen/breakfast room benefits from an Aga, offering a family hub which leads through to the dining and music rooms.
