The property is believed to date back to the 1800's, offering a fine mix blend of original period features, combined with numerous contemporary additions and high tech 'smart home' specification, all nestling in secluded and abundant walled gardens,

The layout with open-plan spaces in the main reception areas, offers an abundance of light and space throughout.
