Extended and renovated by the current owners, the property skillfully blends new build and contemporary styling with classic eighteenth century architecture. A stand-out feature of the property is the enormously successful extension which links the original house to the renovated outbuildings, thus creating a large kitchen/dining/living area connected to the garden terrace.

Timber gates open to a large gravelled drive that provides ample parking, and gives access to a detached stone double garage with electric up-and-over door, power and light. Behind the garage lies a lawned area of garden with herbaceous borders, well screened from the deep grass verge, slipway and village road by a deep stone wall and high privet hedge. Adjacent to the house on the south east elevation is a sheltered and private paved terrace, ideal for al fresco dining, behind which lies a formal, structured garden with pond, water feature, low box hedging and espalier fruit trees. A high hedge with timber arch separates this from a sheltered wildflower garden at the rear with slate chipped path. The entire garden is bounded by a mellow stone wall.
