When the property was totally renovated it was done in a way that cleverly retained the original character and elements of the structure without detriment or compromise to modern-day living.

That has created a superb family house of elegant proportions with high quality fittings.

The ground floor accommodation centres around a 4.91m by 5.17m sitting room with wood burning stove in a brick inglenook fireplace.

Across the hallway, the 4.91m by 5.12m dining room has open studwork through to the AGA -equipped kitchen/breakfast room.
