“I was struck by the potential the property offered, sitting in the middle of such a large plot, the opportunity to develop and extend it is very inviting,” says Savills’ property agent Tom Orford, who is marketing the home at a guide price of £575,000.

The property offers a number of period details throughout, including in the spacious ground-floor sitting room, which features exposed beams and an inglenook fireplace. There is also a dining room, opening out into a light-filled conservatory which enjoys lovely views over the gardens.
