Originally built in 1863 and displaying many period architectural features, the property has undergone a programme of renovation and enhancement by the present owners thereby creating a magnificent family home which combines character with modern day technologies.

Reception rooms are arranged around the Reception Hall, which has stairs to the upper and lower levels. The Drawing Room is a double reception room with two fireplaces and a Sitting room at one end. Both this and the adjoining Dining Room have large bays windows to the rear which not only provide a very pleasant outlook over the gardens but also allow for a large amount of natural light to flood through. The Kitchen/Breakfast Room with its vaulted ceiling and light well, is open plan to the Family Room and Conservatory and has been comprehensively fitted with a range of hand painted, bespoke design cabinetry, granite work surfaces and integrated appliances by Mark Wilkinson., creating a marvellous family area. Elsewhere there are domestic offices for laundry and storage, a Shower Room and pedestrian access to the Garage.
The Garden Level is arranged for entertaining but could also easily provide annex accommodation if so desired. There is a fully equipped Kitchen and a Shower Room plus a large double reception room with two bay windows and French Doors out to the gardens.
From the Galleried Landing on the first floor, rooms have been combined to create a Master Suite with a large double bedroom and bay window, Dressing Room/Bedroom 6 and an En Suite Shower Room.
