“Unquestionably one of the finest and most lavish abodes in the county”

“I rather like this property, it offers so much and retains so many wonderful features. The dining room is magnificent but I’m not sure I know that many people I like to invite over for dinner!”

Notably, the three rounded lead covered turrets, crenelated gable end brick work and ornate moulded stonework. Sitting prominently in an elevated central location within the grounds the resplendent home offers a range of fine, well-proportioned reception rooms, nine bedrooms and five bathrooms. Ornate moulded ceilings with cornices, a stunning Jacobean staircase, wood panelling, Tudor fireplaces and stone arch doorways further showcases the architectural character.
