There are a further eight bedrooms, two with en-suite, and three more bathrooms.
Adjacent is an attractive one-bedroom carriage house which could be used as a holiday let, and externally, the houses are surrounded by mature formal gardens laid to lawn with planted borders and mature woodland, as well as a walled garden, tennis court and pony paddock, while outbuildings include stables, garages and stores.
