A house so charming and elegant that even Little Lord Fauntleroy couldn't find fault with it. This flamboyant Grade II listed period home is believed to date back to 1776. The house has been comprehensively renovated and maintained. The owner has a wonderful eye for detail and has employed an artist to paint stunning murals and detailing to the original plasterwork. It is filled with character features including period fire surrounds, wood panelling and corniced ceilings. The main house offers an abundance of accommodation with four large reception rooms, six bedrooms and four bathrooms set over three floors. There is also a detached coach house with planning permission for conversion to a residential dwelling. The house is located in a total plot of 6.5 acres, including a natural wooded area, nature pond, formal gardens, lawns, tennis court, and substantial paddock. Viewing by appointment only.
