Internally, this wonderful home is every bit as captivating as externally. A sophisticated palette of Farrow & Ball colours complements the stylish living spaces, with interiors bathed in natural light and numerous, gorgeous features of the period found in every room; fireplaces, leaded-light windows, panelled doors and tiled floors are sure to delight.

The kitchen is located to the rear of the house, with access out to the rear garden, and there is also third bedroom. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.
Outside, the large rear garden is laid to lawn and offers a high degree of privacy. A former wash house has been cleverly converted into a study while, to the side of the house, there is a detached garage and driveway.
