General information

A beautifully appointed Grade II listed village home surrounded by landscaped gardens and grounds extending to around 3.5 acres.

A wonderful ornate staircase leads to the first floor with an inner hall serving the northern section of the house where a set of steps lead down to a beautiful brick-lined cellar used as a wine room with an adjoining store. A spacious south-facing sitting room displays a good deal of natural light opening to an equally impressive drawing room. Both rooms have period fireplaces and French doors opening onto a wonderful south facing terrace. To the far side of the house is a stunning breakfast room

with period floor-to-ceiling fitted dresser. The breakfast room opens to the kitchen which has a four oven AGA, a range of fitted shaker-style units with Corian work surfaces and a central granite-topped island.
