Evolving through time, the house illustrates differing periods, proportions and materials that have all been brought together with modern finishes to provide comfortable well-proportioned accommodation. The property is charming and retains character features that include Gothic windows, an ingle nook fireplace and exposed brick and beams.Outside, to the front of the house overlooking the duck pond, there is ample parking and three different vehicular access points onto the lane. The gardens are well established, landscaped and private with numerous secluded seating areas dotted between various lawns, mature trees and shrubs borders.
