The property is beautifully presented throughout with contemporary fixtures and fittings, oak flooring to the principal reception rooms, Amtico flooring to the domestic areas, oak wall and ceiling beams in the oldest part, oak panel doors and pretty fireplaces, some with wood burning stoves.

The sizeable fitted kitchen/breakfast room provides lovely family space and is particularly striking with its central ceiling lantern over a large island unit, gas-fired Aga with electric companion oven and attractive wall and base units with granite tops. In addition, there is plenty of practical domestic space with a walk-in larder, utility room, airing cupboard and extensive cellar storage, including a large wine store.

An oak staircase rises up to a spacious beamed and balustraded landing which provides access to the five first floor bedrooms which include a principal suite with dressing room and bathroom, a ‘Jack and Jill’ en suite guest room, plus a family shower room. There are two further bedrooms, a shower room and a dressing room on the top floor. There is ample storage space in the eaves and most of the bedrooms have built-in cupboards.

The driveway entrance from Primmers Green Lane has automatic double gates and leads to a large gravel parking and turning area in front of an oak framed detached double car port with an enclosed garage/store room and an electric car charging point.
