The main house is constructed in an L-shape, of brick, exposed timbers and part tile-hung elevations under a tiled roof. The accommodation is arranged over two floors and extends to over 6,000 sq. ft with superb ceiling heights throughout. Today it still maintains its character, while being sensitively adapted for modern-day living. The arrangement of the accommodation can be found on the floor plan within the brochure.

The main reception rooms are beautifully presented and face south, providing light and views over the gardens.

The quality of the property extends throughout the gardens and grounds, which have been enhanced substantially over the years and complement the house well. To the east of the house is a timber framed garage and workshop
together with a separate studio, which has recently been refurbished and could be put to a variety of uses including gym or secondary accommodation subject to the necessary consents. Accessed from the south of the house are the upper and lower terraces, ideal for entertaining and alfresco dining. Each area of the garden has been carefully designed, bringing a richness of colour and interest. Specific areas include a parterre garden, Japanese knot garden and an abundance of beautiful herbaceous borders, with toparied box and yew hedging, providing further structure. The gardens include all the amenities associated with country living including a swimming pool with pool house, a hard tennis court and large lawned area.
