South Wing is the larger of the properties, occupying a prime position with a fabulous south facing garden with sweeping countryside and parkland views. There are many original period features throughout the property, including stone mullioned windows, flagstone floors and a particularly impressive staircase. The property is approached via a gated driveway, in a private tucked away position. The entrance hall leads to the drawing room, with wooden flooring, and a welcoming fireplace with woodburner. Full height windows provide plenty of natural light, and overlook the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has a good range of units, and a large feature window looking across the south facing gardens. A music/play room leads to a stylish sun room, that the current owners added in 2010, which provides a perfect place to relax, and the gardens can be accessed from here. Completing the ground floor is a utility room and downstairs cloakroom.
The impressive carved wooden staircase leads to the first floor. The master bedroom offers countryside views, with a feature fireplace. There are three further bedrooms on this floor along with two family bathrooms. The second floor has two bedrooms, one with ensuite shower room and a useful office.
