The current owners have completed a comprehensive program of works over recent years, including attic conversion to master suite which incorporates a separate heating system and attic floor sound proofing, new replica sash double glazing throughout, replacing windows with patio doors in the dining room and breakfast room, house fully rewired throughout, rebuilding and lining of the chimneys, all flat roofs replaced and ground works to facilitate more parking. Close attention has been paid to finer detail, for example all the light switches on the first and second floors have been replaced with dolly switches with wooden pattresses in keeping with the period.

This beautiful house would make a unique family home or offers potential for a home with income as a B&B. Appointments to appraise internally are essential to appreciate the size, quality and individuality of the accommodation.
