The dining room adjoins to the bespoke kitchen/breakfast room, which is comprehensively fitted and has a four oven Aga as well as a central island unit with rose granite work surface.

On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, with a number of fitted and built-in wardrobes and storage units, as well as an ensuite shower room and a family bathroom.

Should further bedrooms be required, the property has the potential for extention (subject to the necessary permissions).

A summerhouse/studio located beyond the pond provides an entertaining space, which could also be used as a home office or converted into an annexe.

The grounds are an important feature of the property. An automated five-bar gate opens to a gravelled driveway, which leads to a spacious parking area in front of the double open-bay cart lodge.

There is also a small timber framed barn, which can provide a lock up garage.

A rose and herb bed borders the front of the house with the main garden lying to the rear and either side of the house.

English country cottage plants such as honeysuckle, bluebells, primose and tulips are present in abundance.

A path to the west side of the property leads to a decked alfresco dining terrace, which stretches out on stilts over the pond.

This large and natural lily pond has a water fall feature to keep the water circulating and is borded by irises, gunnera and water buttercups.

A barbeque terrace adjoins the summerhouse/studio.

An expanse of lawn is bordered by box hedging as well as a variety of trees including horse chestnut, silver birch, lacy lady trees and beech.

A meadow sits to the east. It has previously been used as a heli-pad and could provide a pony paddock.

Outbuildings include two barns, both 56’ by 17’, and a Nissan hut, versatile spaces which provide useful storage room.
