A rare opportunity to acquire this imposing residence which has not been on the open market for many years.
The property is recorded as the oldest house in the village and has over the years been upgraded but, in our opinion, would benefit from further modernisation.
The accommodation is well appointed with spacious principal rooms and character features to include fireplaces and exposed beams throughout.
On the ground floor is a welcoming entrance hall, a comfortable drawing room with fireplace, a formal dining room and family room also with fireplaces and a kitchen/breakfast room. There is a conservatory, utility and larder/store and positioned under the drawing room and accessed from the hall is a cellar.
Upstairs on the first floor are four good sized bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms. Subject to planning there is scope, in our opinion, to adjust and create en suite facilities if required.

There is a walled vegetable garden and paddocks with gated access to the lane.

The surrounding countryside provides lovely walks and extensive riding.
