The house was designed and built to superior standard of the day, reflected by many original period features including parquet wood flooring, deep timber skirting boards, oak wall panelling and solid oak doors.

The original style of the house has been carefully considered where modern day improvements have been made, in particular, the garden room extension which has been beautifully finished in Sapele hardwood, provides a lovely entertaining or additional dining area.

In particular, the ground-floor accommodation is very versatile, with a large drawing room which also currently serves as a formal dining room, with a panelled fireplace with wood burning stove. There is a large study, a further sitting room which adjoins the garden room, a large kitchen/breakfast room and utility.

The first floor is approached via an impressive timber staircase and has been remodelled to provide three generous bedroom suites, the principal bedroom having a high quality Porcelanosa en-suite bathroom and a spacious family shower room, again finished with a Porcelanosa suite and featuring a walk-in wet room shower. The second floor has two further bedrooms, one of which has been used as a cinema room. Outside, the gardens are a wonderful feature, with the house sitting comfortably within mature grounds and being approached via a spacious tarmac driveway, which provides plenty of parking and access to the garage/workshop. The formal gardens lie to the south and west of the house in the main and comprise an impressive expanse of level lawns, bounded by mature well-stocked beds. Lying to the north of the house is a well-established vegetable garden and traditional timber framed greenhouse.
