Dating from the 18th Century, Wakeley House is of classical Georgian appearance with symmetrical fenestration, and is arranged over two floors with large attics and a cellar. Village houses of this quality and proportion are rarely found, especially with such generous parking and large gardens.
The front door opens to a reception hall that is panelled to dado height. The study/library, to the left, is fitted with an extensive range of bookshelves and has sash windows to the front. The dining room, opposite, also has sash windows. Both rooms enjoy views towards the church. To the rear of the house are the sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and conservatory, all with views over the gardens. A cloakroom and large utility room complete the ground floor accommodation. The property has a useful cellar with brick floor and wine cellar.
Stairs rise to the first floor landing, from where doors lead to the four principal bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities. The largest bedroom is used as a bright drawing room and has three sash windows with fine views. There is a family bathroom. A secondary staircase descends to the kitchen and a further staircase continues to the second floor.
Lit by a roof light from above, the second floor landing has doors to three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a kitchen.
The gardens are to the rear of the house with a York stone terrace adjacent to the property with extensive areas of lawn beyond. These are well planted with a variety of mature specimen and fruit trees and the lawn is surrounded by shrub and flower borders and a variety of flowering and herbaceous plants. They are enclosed by walls and fences.
To the side of the house is the former stable which is of brick construction; a pedestrian gate adjacent to the house returns to the High Street. Opposite Wakeley House is the double garage and there are two parking spaces in front of this.
