Over recent years, the property has been sympathetically renovated, with newer additions marrying well with older parts of the house, and its glorious south-facing position means that light floods the rooms all day long.
There are five reception rooms in total, including an elegant Georgian-style drawing room, and a garden sitting room which offers direct access to the gardens.
The hallway is particularly striking, with an impressive sweeping staircase, and there is also a large, open-plan kitchen/breakfast room designed in a country style.
Upstairs, the property offers five large double bedrooms, a smaller single and three bathrooms including a shower room.
