This imposing Grade II Listed property is now in need of complete refurbishment and re-decoration inside and out; although, it does have some period features that are worthy of being retained to include ceiling roses, ornate coving, cornices, picture and dado rails, together with carved staircases and feature fireplaces. The surprisingly spacious accommodation is organised over three floors, stylishly connected by a split level staircase with generous landings and full height windows giving ample natural light. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, a cloakroom/wc and a kitchen with access through to the garage. Upstairs, on the first and second floor, are five generous size bedrooms and a family bathroom.
In addition, on the lower ground floor will be found a large, dry cellar with an area for storing wine. This super house could be a most impressive residence, or provide an excellent opportunity for conversion to apartments subject to obtaining all the necessary permissions.

Large double gates give access to the garage and parking, while a further lawn with apple tree is to the side offering additional parking space if desired.
