This elegant home provides many period features such as sash windows with wooden shutters in the sitting room and study, marble surround fireplace in the sitting room containing a woodburner. The kitchen provides plenty of family entertaining space as well as another woodburner with sitting area.
There is a large mature garden with terrace and 18th century sun dial at the front, leading onto the lawn with borders containing many interesting shrubs, mature trees and sunken area at the bottom, planted with a variety of bulbs, as well as herbaceous borders with old-fashioned roses and herb garden to the side with box hedging, paved and shingle paths with a central shingle bed planted with colourful bulbs.
