The estate has three period residences, all of which have been fully refurbished and restored.

It has Tudor origins, but Georgian additions too, so it’s one for those who like their home to have character.

Aside from the considerable heft of the house, there are lots of added extras to enjoy if you made this your dream home.

But let’s stop at the main house first.

At 700m2, it has three reception rooms, a library, sun room, study, pantry, kitchen, and en suite bedrooms as well as a kitchenette.


There’s also an annex to the main house, which has three bedrooms and open-plan kitchen and dining area, as well as the gate lodge, which has six bedrooms.

The coach house, meanwhile, has another six bedrooms and its own indoor swimming pool.

Oh, and there’s a steam room and shower room too.


As for the extras, there are original features like the Georgian fireplaces, plus lots of parking, a tennis court, a huge garden with mature trees, great views from the manicured and landscaped grounds, and statues dotted around the area.
