The property has been lovingly and expensively updated and decorated throughout turning it into the most charming but practical property I've ever had the privilege to market. There is still so much impressive originality everywhere you look but with the comfort and luxury that only modern improvements can produce.

The cellar areas are currently used for extensive storage and depending on business interests this is a perfect use for them. The space serves as an opportunity for a magnificent games room, home cinema complex or gym or any number of other options depending on interests! The options are endless subject to the usual planning and permission.

To the other side just outside the Annex own door is another lawn garden, with Hot tub area. This is a perfect space for a dependent relative or to be used as a holiday let.  Directly in front of that is the wonderful grass tennis courts for those with a competitive edge. Nearby is the Stable block, well house, and an area with solar panels providing additional  Beyond that leads to further grazing land to the Northern and Eastern boundaries.

Saving the best until last is the walled garden, this perfect, manicured, suntrap is the epitome of elegance and charm. With lovely lawns, pristine flower beds leading to a Patio on the edge of the recently installed heated outdoor pool. It is the perfect place for unwinding as a family or hosting much larger gatherings.

Of course a property like this offers more than most people can imagine and needs to be inspected at length to be truly appreciated.
