The front study is dual aspect with a fireplace, the drawing room has a triple south facing arched window giving lovely views of the gardens and Wolds beyond, original coving and a fireplace within a tall mantel, and the dining room has a floor-to-ceiling glazing with a single glazed door that opens to the lawned garden. The kitchen breakfast room has French doors that open west onto a broad flight of stone steps that descend to the garden. The fitted kitchen has a breakfast bar, a mix of granite and Corinth worktops, integrated appliances and an electric Aga. Accessed down three stone steps is the large utility/laundry with the original black and red tiled floor, an original built-in cupboard and door to the garden room. The cellar has two rooms, both with good ceiling heights.

On the first floor there are five double bedrooms and a single bedroom. Those with south facing windows enjoy particularly fine views of the rising hills. The bedrooms are served by two large bathrooms, a shower room and a separate wc. Bedroom One is connected to the adjacent bedroom offering potential to create a dressing room or nursery. On the second floor is a further double bedroom with a cast-iron fireplace and a bathroom with a roof light.


A five-bar gate opens onto a gravelled driveway providing ample parking for a number of vehicles and leading to the double garage with electric up-and-over doors and internal access to two stores. The family-sized garden has flower beds, sweeping lawns that lie predominantly to the south and west, and a variety of well-established shrubs and trees. It is bounded by fencing and high mature hedging and in part enjoys an outlook over open fields. There are two patios, one accessed directly from the dining room that enjoys south facing sunshine, the other on the west side. A further store is accessed directly from the garden. On the south west side of the lawn is a timber shed and greenhouse.
