The superb kitchen/breakfast room is on the garden level beneath the ground floor, along with a wine store, boiler room, den, utility room and cloakroom.
Also on this floor is the apartment, which has a kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom and dressing room.
The bedrooms are on the first and second floors, offering a master bedroom with en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and second bathroom, a WC and a dressing room on the first floor, with another five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the top floor.
The property is set well back from the road and approached via a long gravel driveway, passing a triple open-bay carport and terminating in a large turning circle to the side of the house.
The mature gardens are mostly to lawn with mature shrubs, plants, flowers and trees.
To the rear is a heated swimming pool with an electric cover and paved limestone surround.
In all, the gardens and grounds extend to approximately one acre.
