The home has been recently renovated to an exacting standard. Approached by a sweeping driveway and set on a mature elevated site, this magnificent detached family residence is sure to impress the growing family who may perhaps have equestrian interests.

No expense has been spared by the present owners in terms of the level of finish and specification, bespoke kitchens and bathrooms, luxury ensuites, a plethora of restored original features and amazing staircase.

The accommodation, which extends to approximately 10,000 sq ft comprises an impressive entrance hall, eight bedrooms, five reception rooms to include games room, two bathrooms, two ensuites, plus cloakrooms and utility facilities on the ground floor, and a stunning kitchen/living/ dining area.

Externally the formal gardens are beautifully maintained and manicured.
