An outstanding Grade I Listed Elizabethan country house in a beautiful parkland setting
Internally the house combines a selection of magnificent light and spacious reception rooms with extensive and comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first floor. The second floor, once the domain of the house staff, is partially used and could provide further bedroom space if required.
Of particular note is the magnificent Reception Hall, part panelled with a fine open fireplace and doors leading to the elegant drawing room with views over the gardens to the South East. Adjoining is the library with a unique sense of history and views over the parkland to the south west.
