The kitchen is modern and attractive with high quality fitted units, offering access to a large utility room and inner hallway giving access to a useful study and ground floor cloakroom. There are 6 bedrooms arranged over the first and second floor, with the master being incredibly spacious, benefitting form a large walk in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. There are also 2 sizeable and tastefully finished family bathrooms. The house sits elegantly within its beautiful surroundings, which include a delightful stream flowing into a millpond, with several bridges crossing over it. There are large areas of flat lawn, interspersed with specimen trees and fringed to one side with native woodland. A large two storey stone-built outbuilding offers fantastic conversion potential.
