This impressive double fronted property, believed to date from the early 1800's or earlier with later additions, has been under the same ownership for 47 years and has been a much-loved family home. Now in need of updating, the house provides an opportunity to create a spectacular family home. There is an enormous amount of charm and period features throughout the property typical of this era, including wooden flooring, sash windows with shutters and the lovely feature of window seats in all the bedrooms, The house is complemented by a beautiful mature and well-stocked walled garden and has the benefit of a garage and the original stable with an adjoining store.

Arranged over three floors, the accommodation offers well-proportioned rooms with potential to extend further subject to the necessary consents. From the attractive front door with Georgian fan light, the entrance hall leads through to the rear of the house. Leading off the hall are the three reception rooms, two of which have open fireplaces. The drawing room enjoys direct access via French doors to the garden whilst the interconnecting sitting rooms have a sun filled large bay window providing a lovely space to sit and enjoy the garden at the side of the house. The kitchen/breakfast room is arranged off the rear hall and offers potential to extend and open up to the garden subject to the necessary consents.
