A part glazed door opens into a spacious dining hall with attractive parquet flooring. Stairs rise to the first floor and doors lead off to all principal reception rooms.

With folding doors from the dining hall the drawing room is a generous double aspect room with views across the front and rear gardens. The focal point of the room is a redbrick fireplace with oak bressummer and stone hearth which houses a cast iron wood burning stove. From the drawing room a pair of bi-fold doors lead into the conservatory which is another spacious room with double doors opening into the rear garden.

The kitchen breakfast room has two windows overlooking the front gardens. There is a tiled floor and a range of hand-made oak cupboards with work surfaces above, tiled splash backs and an inset butler sink. To one end is a pantry cupboard and a stable door that leads into the utility/boot room. This is a practical area with a window and door to the front and a further range of fitted cupboards and space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer. A side door leads into the garage and a rear door opens into a lean-to storage area which in turn leads to the rear garden.

Also off the dining hall is an inner lobby which gives access to a guest bedroom suite which comprises; a comfortable double bedroom with a window to the rear and an adjacent bathroom. The bathroom is fully tiled and has been well appointed with a freestanding bath, shower cubicle, low level wc, bidet and hand wash basin.

Doors lead from here to three further bedrooms. The master bedroom is a light and airy triple aspect room with a window to the side, dormer window to the front and a pair of glazed French doors to the rear. These open onto a small balcony giving far reaching views over the gardens and paddocks beyond.

Across the landing are two further bedrooms and a bathroom. Both bedrooms are comfortable double rooms; bedroom three overlooks the rear gardens and has a fitted cupboard and bedroom four overlooks the front gardens and has a fitted wardrobe. The family bathroom is fitted with a white suite comprising; panel bath, low level wc and a pedestal hand wash basin.   

The property is accessed via a pair of electrically operated wrought iron gates which open onto a long shingle drive. The drive opens into a wide parking area which gives access to the garage. The garage measures 19'4 x 8'3 with an up and over door and power and light connected.

The front garden is laid predominantly to lawn and is enclosed by closed board fencing and a mature selection of trees and shrubs. To one side is a raised terrace with steps leading up, a further selection of specimen shrubs and ornamental fish pond. To one side of the property a personal gate opens into the rear gardens.

The rear garden has a wonderful open aspect with paddocks behind and is divided into several areas. Immediately to the rear of the property and accessed via the conservatory is a paved patio with a brick built barbeque. From here an archway leads to a generous vegetable garden which is enclosed by stock proof fencing. To one side is a spacious chicken/duck run fully enclosed with fox proof fencing.
