An exceptional Grade II listed open hall house with origins from about 1400, and with later additions in the 15th, 16th, 19th and 20th centuries. The house now has extensive family accommodation with many fine period features including open inglenook fireplaces, and abundance of exposed oak beams. There is a fine crown post in the main bedroom. The main reception rooms form three sides of a sheltered York stone paved terrace on south side of the house. A secondary staircase is a useful feature and offers scope for a separate au-pair suite. The main outbuildings which are not listed currently provide garaging and useful storage, but lend themselves to being converted into ancillary accommodation (subject to planning permission).

Approached through a pair of tall electrically operated gates there is a large driveway and a wisteria clad walkway leads to the front door. The mostly walled formal gardens are set predominantly to the south of the house, and are edged with deep, and well stocked borders with a variety of ornamental trees, shrubs and flowering plants.
