The house sits in the middle of its grounds, accessed via a drive, its rear and eastern flank protected by woodland and its southern flank enjoying an open vista across manicured lawns. The interiors – amounting to more than 4000 sq ft - are elegant and contemporary. This is a property to be relished.
