The property is known for its spacious reception rooms and comfortable bedrooms, as well as having underfloor heating on both ground and first floors.

Alongside that it has a "beautifully-proportioned" drawing room, centred on a Rudloe Stone fire surround with large French doors under an ornate top light opening up onto a paved terrace.

The kitchen/family room has been re-modelled since it was originally conceived and now provides a highly functional and generously proportioned living space with glazed doors opening into the formal gardens and also the sheltered courtyard.

All five bedrooms enjoy extensive views over the grounds and gardens, whilst also all having an en-suite.

A paved terrace overlooks the formal gardens. Laid mostly to the lawn, a principal feature is the charming parterre garden with a central water feature.

Stone steps lead down to the lower lawns with a timber gazebo, ideal for entertaining and situated next to the raised Koi pond.

If you're a fan of golf then you'll be in luck as there is a synthetic putting green with bunker and tees to 108 yards that can be used all year round if you wish.

Various gates lead from the formal gardens into the parkland which overlooks the lake, which is floodlit and provides a haven for wildlife, including many rare breeds of duck.

Alongside those features, there is also an indoor swimming pool, steam room, library, cloakroom and study.
