Approached through gates and by a treelined driveway, the front façade has an immense appeal and is particularly attractive when floodlit at night. The accommodation has an easy flow with the main salon and dining room either side of a central hallway with a particularly pretty staircase. A library wing with multiple windows and top floor, with mansard roof, were added in 1870s. A secondary entrance gives access to the kitchen and a large bureau, which doubles as a billiards room.
The master suite has a study area, two dressing rooms, main bedroom and bathroom. The principal guest suite is entirely independent with its own stair, lofty beamed ceiling, kitchenette, bathroom and roof terrace. Four further bedrooms and three bathrooms. Floors are in pine boards or matting and with patterned encaustic tiles in the hall. Timberwork is in a pleasing eau-de-nil shade and bathrooms are in white throughout.
In 2001, the property was the subject of a professional restoration, including all electrical, plumbing and heating installations and bathroom fittings. A new owner should budget for redecorating the property and for minor running repairs now due. DPE rating: D.
Outside, a rear terrace, 20x7 metres, with an ancient balustrade and adjoining the kitchen, is the perfect outdoor entertaining area. Beyond, a lawn the size of a small cricket field, is ideal for youngsters’ games with open views over a patchwork of unspoilt countryside.
Leading off the kitchen is a delightful terrace, 20x6m, framed by ancient balustrades and climbing hydrangea, the perfect setting for al fresco meals and playing boules. The terrace looks onto a fine magnolia grandiflora and indigenous parkland trees. Woodstore, garden store and green house. Swimming pool, 12x6m, with paved surround and roller safety cover.

Set to one side is a carport for 3 vehicles and a guest parking area. To the rear, the land extends into a large and level expanse of grassland with open views to wooded ridges. A long pond is home to moorhen and other birdlife and deer are often sighted.
