THE PROPERTY

The property retains its period ambience with a rich variety of architectural features, displaying a host of original period details that includes a splendid king post, inglenook and open fireplaces, impressive beams and timbers, wide oak floor-boards and exposed brick floors along with leaded light and casement windows.

Of particular note is the elegant dining room which offers a handsome period fireplace along with moulded dado rail and coving. The front gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a planted border of flowering shrubs to one side and a magnificent ancient checker tree to the other. The brick pathway wraps around the house and a small brook runs through the garden providing a haven for local wildlife.
