Dating from 1907 and built from harled pink granite under a slate roof, the house provides spacious and very well appointed accommodation over two and a half storeys. On the ground floor, the front door opens into an entrance hall with part timber panelled walls. To the right, the hallway leads past the staircase and on to a charming seating area. Opposite is a magnificent drawing room which is generously sized and has an impressive open fire place with a timber mantle and marble surround. Adjacent to the drawing room is a sitting room which is also another wonderfully light room with large windows overlooking the garden and French doors leading out to a patio. At the other end of the hallway is the kitchen which is of a good size, has a range of modern wall and floor units and various integrated appliances. Off the kitchen is a light and airy breakfasting room with French doors to a gravelled courtyard. The breakfasting room also gives access to a rear hallway off which is a utility room, W.C. and store room. Leaving the kitchen, to the left is a study and a dining room with a further open fire place. A cloakroom and a scullery complete the ground floor accommodation. An impressive timber staircase with a carved handrail and balusters leads to the first floor landing. To the right, double doors open into the master suite comprising of a dressing room, bedroom and bathroom. There are three further bedrooms on the first floor, two of which are particularly generously sized, and one of which benefits from a connected dressing room. Also on the first floor are a family bathroom, a shower room and a laundry room. Back stairs (at the opposite end of the house to the main stairs) lead to the second floor which has four bright and airy bedrooms, a studio, a bathroom and a kitchenette.

Overall, the house is very well appointed and has a number of fine features including tall ceilings throughout, cornicing, ceiling roses and a number of open fireplaces. It has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and the rooms are well proportioned.
