A wonderful Grade II listed property with an abundance of period features that has been the subject of a meticulous and sympathetic programme of enlargement and refurbishment by the current owner. Highlights include the generously proportioned sitting room with wood burning stove as well as the farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room which is semi open plan to the family room, also with wood burning stove. The master bedroom is also of note as it benefits from a dressing room and en suite shower room, a rare find for a house of this age. All of the bedrooms enjoy charming views either over the grounds or surrounding countryside. An internal inspection is strongly recommended.
