A substantial country residence of much character totalling in excess of 7,000 sq ft with origins believed to date back to the 19th century. Offering very well proportioned accommodation that could suit purchasers with a requirement for dual occupancy, the property boasts excellent reception rooms that are particularly well suited to both family living and entertaining with the particular highlight being the 29 ft kitchen/dining/family room with Aga. The bedroom accommodation is arranged over the first and second floors together with the addition of a games room or den. Of further note is the impressive adjoining vaulted barn which is currently configured as an annexe but could easily work as the principle reception space for the main house.
