Set behind private gates and a long sweeping driveway, the front door opens from a wide terrace spanning the house frontage into a wide and inviting entrance hallway which accesses the four reception rooms.

The drawing room is beautiful and impressively proportioned, with a deep bay with French doors within to, and views over, the gardens.

The spacious family kitchen breakfast room has plenty of room for informal dining.

The first floor landing provides access to the elegant principal bedroom suite and two further double bedrooms, one Jack & Jill to the family bathroom.

An inner landing hallway leads to three further bedrooms and a second full-suite family bathroom.

The second floor would be perfect for teenage children or visiting guests, with three further double bedrooms (one en suite) and a further family shower room.The gardens wrap around the house and are beautifully presented with landscaped lawns, deep flowering borders and mixed deciduous trees.
