The property sits on a lovely plot of 0.83 acre in a popular semi-rural location. It has a large landscaped garden that is enclosed by closeboard fencing and mature hedging, providing a good deal of privacy and seclusion. The property is approached through double electric gates and a gravelled driveway that leads to a large parking area in front of the house. There is a timber framed garage and carbarn that provides generous parking for three cars. Above, is a self-contained annexe ideal for an office or independent space for a family member or au-pair.

The limestone flooring has under-floor heating and flows into the dining room with its vaulted ceiling and bifold doors, which open to the garden. A stable door opens to the equally well-appointed utility room.
