The property built in the 20th Century has a distinctive open plan feel, yet with a balance of intimacy throughout each room. From the entrance hall, there are three principal receptions rooms, an elegant dining room leading to a good-sized sitting room with adjacent study and a very light and airy formal drawing room leading through to the stylish garden room. The modern and extensive kitchen breakfast room commands stunning views over the rear garden. Of particular note is the self-contained ground floor bedroom with kitchenette, ensuite shower room and separate access if required. In addition, there is an inner lobby adjoining the study, a mud room and stairs leading to Bedroom Six, or a spacious office.

To the first floor there are four further bedrooms all with ample wardrobe space, a family bathroom, and separate shower room.

The entire property is very light and airy and commands exceptional countryside views from every aspect.

The property has an attractive aspect with mature hedging to the front offering privacy and seclusion. To the rear there is a beautifully maintained garden mainly laid to lawn and flanked with mature plants and specimen trees. From there you can glimpse the neighbouring historic Manor House and 13th Century church. Of particular note is the extensive terrace which is ideal for outdoor entertaining.
