Let’s take a look around…
The approach to the house is via a private drive with the house sitting well back from a quiet country lane.
To the side of the property, there are three stables, a tack room and courtyard. From these stables, you enter a large paddock – this property sits in three acres in total.
To the rear of the property is a landscaped garden and there is also a large gravel drive at the front of the house and a double garage too.
This unlisted property dates from the 1920s and on entering the house, there is a central hallway with stairs leading up to the first floor.
From the central hallway there are reception rooms including a triple aspect living room, a dining room with a bay window overlooking the garden and a large conservatory with French doors leading to the garden.
From the entrance hall you also access the kitchen which leads through to a cloakroom, utility room and bedroom. This portion of the house could easily be reconfigured to a self-contained studio annexe (subject to the necessary permissions).
On the first floor there are five bedrooms and two family shower/bathrooms.
The principal bedroom is triple aspect and has built-in wardrobes.
