Extending to 4832 sq. ft., the house has a substantial floor plan and an extremely versatile layout which lends itself well to both family life and entertaining. The ground floor is particularly flexible with a choice of three reception rooms. To the front there is a spacious library and a sitting room, both with feature fireplaces. A particular highlight is the kitchen, which is appointed with a selection of wall and base units under granite worksurfaces and a Lacanche Range cooker with gas and electric ovens.
