light and features three Victorian-style skylights, a built-in

walls to dado height and a granite-topped bar.
The lavishly equipped kitchen with granite-topped work
counters and peninsular breakfast bar features a range of
built-in NEFF appliances including an integrated fridge and
freezer, hob and extractor hood, twin ovens, microwave,
warming drawer, dishwasher and integrated coffeemaker
and leads to the formal dining room.
Bedroom accommodation continues the traditional theme.

beams has a spectacular fully tiled luxurious bathroom
fitted with ‘heritage’ twin wash basins, high-level cistern w.c
and spa bath, together with a walk-in wet-room/shower
area. The two further bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms,
each with a bateau bath.
Expansive paved terraces surround the main house where the secluded formal gardens are laid principally to lawn with mature shrubs and trees. There is also a pond, a productive kitchen garden, fruit cage and an orchard.
Equestrians will appreciate the manège and the five stables, tack room and feed room, above which extensive rooms offer gym, office, workshop or studio potential, while surrounding the stable yard are a hay barn and numerous outbuildings.
