The origins of this handsome Grade II Listed building probably date back to the 17th century and the core of the house is timber framed. However, there were significant extensions in the Georgian or early Victorian era, when the building was rendered and sash windows were installed. This is perhaps the perfect family house with many well-proportioned rooms, some formal with tall ceilings, picture rails and ornate fireplaces and others more cosy, with brick or wooden flooring and wood burning stoves. Towards the back of the house is the kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga and walk-in pantry, a study which in turn leads to a very large utility/dog room with a door to the garage. On the first floor, at the front of the house there is a master bedroom suite with a fine en suite, five further bedrooms and two further bath/shower rooms.
The grounds are noteworthy and include a formal garden established by the previous owners and are now reaching maturity. A swimming pool is ideally located close to the house and there is a recently re-surfaced hard tennis court and two ponds. The equestrian facilities include an all-weather manege, stable yard with four stables and hay storage. There are also three paddocks fringed by woodland
Agents Note: It is possible to purchase the house without the stable yard.
