The accommodation is light, versatile and well laid out. A truly flexible property either as a family home or by simply closing the study door (as illustrated on the floor plan) it could be adapted to create a separate, self-contained annexe, guest suite or otherwise. There are three reception rooms which include an impressive drawing room.
