Period Features include exposed beams, attractive fireplaces, oak flooring, lofty ceilings, wood panelling and decorative picture rails.

Within the grounds of 1.2 acres are two adjoining barns, a triple garage, car barn and further outbuildings and stores. Plans were in place to join the main house to the outbuildings, creating a grand dining hall with vaulted ceiling and a raised octagonal orangery. Planning permission has now lapsed but could be re-instated if desired.

The bedroom hall with built-in cupboards leads to the principal bedroom suite, which has its own bathroom; there is a second double bedroom and separate bathroom.
