Outside, the property sits in a good size plot, which is mature and landscaped.
The property his reached off the lane by a gravel driveway leading to the hard standing spaces, car port, garage and front entrance porch. From here, a door leads to a good size hall/study, with doors leading to the principal reception room, dining room and third bedroom. The sitting room is a wonderful room, converted from the original stable, with full height vaulted ceiling with exposed timbers. It is a double aspect room with sliding doors out to the garden and offers a lovely outlook over the formal lawns. From the sitting room, a door leads back to an inner hall with a number of built-in cupboards and a further door to the dining room. The kitchen is situated below the first floor bedroom in the tower section and is a nicely arranged triple aspect room with a range cooker, water softner, a good arrangement of drawers, cupboards and wall cupboards, together with a breakfast area. Again, there are sliding double doors out to the garden. Reached off the inner hallway there is a utility room with door to outside, a cloakroom / shower room and principal bedroom suite with small dressing lobby and ensuite bathroom. Completing the ground floor there is a third double bedroom, which is currently arranged as a second sitting room/office.
Reached from the inner hall by a staircase in one flight with winders is the triple aspect double bedroom with double doors out to balcony. This room offers lovely views across the surrounding garden and out across the adjoining farmland.
The property is presented in good decorative order.
