The music room is another useful space which could also be used as an extension of the sitting room to create a "family room" if required.

The dining room is yet another generous space with ample room for family sized dining set and chairs.

A handy cloakroom provides an ideal place to hang coats and kick off boots after a countryside walk. Completing the ground accommodation is the study, yet another sizable reception room that was formerly a kitchen to one of the cottages. The first floor can be accessed via two separate staircases from either end of the property, joined by a large landing area with access to useful storage cupboards. Three of the double bedrooms sit to the front aspect, looking out over the fields beyond. To the rear is the fourth bedroom which is another good size double room. First floor facilities are provided by a neat central cloakroom, equipped with toilet and wash basin.

The property sits in a plot of land measuring over an acre in size, with a country lane/bridleway running alongside. The house itself sits to the wider end of the plot, with roughly a third of the land taken up by a pleasant garden area. This garden area is stocked with mature bushes, a wide variety of tree species and a rose garden. There is a generous parking area with a substantial timber garage. Further down the plot is another large section laid to grass with two fenced off vegetable gardens, which then links to an orchard which is planted with a variety of fruit trees.
