The property has been sympathetically improved to make a very desirable family home and boasts many historical features including multiple fireplaces, exposed timbers and beams.

Accommodation is set over three floors, ground floor provides hall, cloakroom, three reception rooms and a fitted kitchen with oil fired aga. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a stunning re-fitted heritage bathroom featuring a red brick semi circular fireplace. The second floor provides the fourth double bedroom with oak crossbeams and a separate shower room. To the rear of the house is a converted brick outbuilding which provides a utility room and further cloakroom. (Planning consent was granted in 2014 for the construction of a garden room which would create a stunning room and link the main house to this outbuilding).
