There is also a store room, boot room/office and family bathroom as well as a shower room. Outside there are south facing gardens, a double garage and three paddocks.

The property includes a range of period features including original flagstone flooring and beamed ceilings. The kitchen has a granite top work island, four-oven Aga plus electric two oven companion with gas hob.

Stairs rise to an elevated sitting room and double doors lead from the boot room to a conservatory with under floor heating. A door then leads to a vegetable garden outside.
