A prominent and distinctive Grade ll village house for adaptable refurbishment. It is believed to date from the mid 18th century and extended in circa 1840 together with a more recent conservatory.

The house offers adaptable accommodation with the potential for a ground floor annexe with separate rear access, subject to any necessary planning consents. There are well proportioned rooms with high ceilings and period features include window shutters, window seats and original fireplaces. The entrance hall opens to the sitting room; there are three further reception rooms and a well arranged kitchen/breakfast room with a 4 oven oil-fired aga, conservatory, rear hall and hallways, shower room, separate wc and a utility room on the ground floor together with the spacious potential annexe with sitting room, two further rooms and shower room.
Upstairs there is the master bedroom with en suite bath/ shower room, 4 further double bedrooms and two bathrooms. To the west side of the house is courtyard parking adjacent to the detached double garage. To the rear is the splendid swimming pool terrace, the garden and beyond, the paddock.
The property is reached off the village street onto a stone paved path to the front porch. Small level lawns, with a small ornamental pond on one side, flank the path. The front is well screened by mature hedging. The main garden lies to the rear and high timber double gates open onto a concrete courtyard parking area with space for a number of cars and giving direct access to the adjacent double garage.
The land lies to the north-west of the garden and part runs along the northern edge of the churchyard. In all there is about 3.75 acres.
