The house itself has well proportioned and laid out accommodation with all the principle receptions and bedrooms across the southerly side of the house with views to the golf course. The house will be suitable for modernisation and extension or a complete redevelopment
of the property with a new home.
The property is approached over a long gravel driveway creating an impressive arrival at the front door. Across the rear of the property is a large expanse of terrace with steps leading down onto the rear lawns which are terraced, broken and interspersed with well stocked flower and shrubbery beds and a central pond.

The whole amounts to approximately 3 acres, faces south east to the rear and is quite an outstanding feature of the property.Situation
