The ground floor has a spacious living room with a large recessed open fireplace and doors lead to the formal dining room which also has an open fireplace with decorative surround. Having a dual aspect from here over the gardens, sliding doors lead to a terraced area from which to enjoy after dinner drinks and indeed, the peace and tranquillity of the setting.
The sitting room, adjacent to the kitchen, offers a warm and cosy space, featuring a large wood burning stove, making it the perfect spot to relax with a book or to gather with friends and family. French doors lead out to the gardens to which your eyes are inexorably drawn from many of the rooms.

The Annexe - Adjoining the main house, you will find delightful ancillary accommodation comprising of an open plan kitchen / living / dining room and to the first floor, a bedroom and en-suite. Although the annexe is accessed via its own front door from a courtyard to the rear, the property has lockable doors between the main house and the annexe on both floors, thereby creating additional accommodation to the main house, if required, perfect for guests and additional family members. The annexe could make an ideal separate office or holiday let.
Outside - The delights of the house extend beyond its walls, stretching to mature gardens and grounds approaching four acres. The gardens are a magnificent feature of the property, providing year-round interest with an array of flora and fauna to include beautiful structural specimen trees such as Redwood, Copper Beech, Silver Birch, Pines and Maples.
The gardens are divided into a number of separate compartments, surrounded by more open areas, which all of which link naturally with the countryside beyond. The formal gardens are laid mostly to lawn with numerous pathways naturally leading around the property creating a feeling of synergy with a variety of seating areas depending on the seasons and time of day. The space is truly ideal for al-fresco dining and entertainment.
Nestled within the grounds, you will also discover a tennis court, ideal for sports enthusiasts and for those green fingered amongst us, tucked away between the driveway and tennis court, there are a range of outbuildings to include a Victorian potting shed, workshop, a large green house, pigeon coops and further wooden storage sheds.
To the front of the property, you will find a detached two storey brick-built barn with original pitching window to the first floor.

To the rear of the garden you will find a large flat paddock of approximately 1.6 acres. Currently used as farmland, the paddock naturally lends itself to perhaps utilise as equestrian facilities and potentially available via separate negotiation, there is an additional piece of land, adjacent to the paddock, equating to 12 acres approximately.
