The property sits in an elevated position overlooking its own gardens and grounds, and provides generous accommodation over two floors. There is the potential to develop with planning permission pending, the boiler already upgraded in anticipation of the extra bedrooms, and the altered layout of the hallway to incorporate space for the additional staircase. A spacious entrance hall welcomes you into the property and steps lead down to the sitting room with wood burning stove and sliding doors to a balcony. The large open-plan kitchen/dining room offers excellent views over the garden and a separate lobby and utility room with door to the garden. The master bedroom is a bright and spacious room with a modern en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms, one with doors to a secluded patio, a modern family bath/shower room, separate cloakroom and a study which could alternatively be used as a single bedroom.
Approached from the lane, the property offers a gated gravelled driveway with parking and turning area, and access to the detached brick built double garage. A pathway and steps lead up to the house through the landscaped gardens, with established planting including specimen rhododendrons and a babbling brook.

There is a large paddock adjoining the garden, with a stock fenced area of circa 50m x 50m, augmented by chicken wire buried approximately two feet down, planted with fifty mixed fruit trees and three rows of vines with ample space for a large vegetable patch.
