This magnificent house is believed to date back to circa 1650. The original part consists of the drawing room and the bedrooms over. Subsequently, there have been later additions. There are well proportioned rooms with high ceilings and many original features including open fireplaces. The property has been in the same family ownership for almost 40 years and now requires refurbishment. This represents an ideal opportunity for a buyer to restore an individual home to their own style and taste. Furthermore, the extensive living area could be adapted and subdivided to allow for annexe accommodation, subject to any consents which may be required.

The main garden lies on the south eastern side of the house, where there is a broad expanse of lawn, bordered by mature shrubs and a wall along one side. On the northern side of the house is terracing, an area of wild garden and garden stores. There is a former outbuilding and a double garage, both of which are now in disrepair. To the west of the house is an area that was originally a paddock and lawn tennis court which has now largely become woodland.
