In more recent years the property has been sympathetically restored and extended and worthy of particular note is the striking, contemporary extension of the kitchen which brings 21st century style to the house. The kitchen, sun room, dining room and family shower room all benefit from underfloor heating.

On the first floor, there's a principal bedroom with an en-suite, three further bedrooms and a family shower room.
