Set within the grounds there is a range of stables that have been converted into four double bedrooms, each with ensuite facilities, giving the opportunity and versatility to run a business from home such as holiday letting, ancillary accommodation, and a suite of offices or additional accommodation for visiting family. Adjoining the stables is an indoor leisure facility with a heated swimming pool and exercise jet system, a separate gymnasium and shower. This beautiful family home also benefits from a detached double garage with twin up and over automatic doors and a large studio or home office above and a cloakroom facility, again offering great versatility for usage. The formal gardens extend to the rear and side of the property and have been beautifully landscaped by the current vendor providing separate areas of interest.

To one side there is a large garden machinery store, a working garden area and a large garden pond. Part of this wonderful garden is given over to a small orchard with three greenhouses, a potting shed and a kitchen garden.
