Approached through its own gated entrance leading into a generous parking courtyard with surrounding lawns and a garden store, this attractive semi-detached cottage has brick elevations under a tiled roof. A small front garden has a brick path leading up to the front door opening to the hall with doors to large sitting room with wood burner, dining room with rayburn, fitted kitchen with a larder, utility room with shower/WC, stable door to back porch leading round to a small terrace area. On the first floor are 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The land lies immediately to the west of the house with a separate gated access off the lane leading into the stable yard. A public footpath, fenced off on both sides, also comes in at this point and bisects the land. Lined with Oaks, there is also a fenced home paddock and a separate triangular paddock on the far side. The stable yard with a separate entrance comprises 4 loose boxes together with a hay store and washdown area. Planning consent has been granted to convert this to a 2 bedroom dwelling. Also off this entrance is a 20m x 14m sand school together with a large 24m x 13m concrete hardstanding.
