The house still retains many amazingly characterful features such as the original telephone room.

Those who enjoy secluded places would surely love this property as long as it is set in a glorious rural landscape surrounded by 100 acres of National Trust heath land, far from any road or rail noise. The cobbled courtyard is the perfect place for parking and access to the double garage is easy.

The reception rooms are all interconnective via beautiful sliding panelled doors. When they are open, the drawing, dining and sitting rooms measure up to over 60 feet.
