A handsome and classically-proportioned detached Grade II Listed property occupying an elevated setting and offering beautifully presented and versatile accommodation. Thought to date from the late seventeenth century, the house was substantially rebuilt in 1845 and is now a fine example of Victorian architecture. The house has an elegant Ashlar front, sash windows and carved pilasters framing the central door but the period details do not end there: many rooms have period fireplaces, flagstone flooring in the dining room has been gently worn away by centuries of passing feet and the staircase has carved handrails with slender spindles for starters.
The principal ground floor accommodation is comprised of an entrance hall/study, a dining room with carved stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove, a sitting room and a kitchen/breakfast room with exposed beams. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, a luxurious en suite bathroom offering wonderful views across the surrounding woodlands and a family bathroom with roll-top bath and separate shower enclosure. There are two further bedrooms on the top floor. A utility room, cloakroom and pantry on the ground floor and a playroom in the basement complete the accommodation.
The gardens are to the front and side of the house and are mainly laid to lawn with many mature trees and shrubs and stone wall and wrought iron rail boundaries. A useful outbuilding currently used as a workshop and store offer scope for improvement (STPP).
