Celia Lamb of selling agents Ganly Walters says the house dates back to the mid 19th century and was originally built as a dower house.

The residence is approached by a gravel avenue lined with old beech and oak before it sweeps to the front of the house that sits on a rise and commands views of the River Nore and across the valley.

The current owners have completely restored and refurbished the main house which extends to approximately 3,637 sq. ft. The accommodation comprises an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room and drawing room, both with double doors to the garden.

There is a bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with French doors that lead to a terrace with more fine views. On the first floor there are four large bedrooms, two of which are ensuite.

The gardens to the back, front and side of the houses are planted with old rose bushes, shrubberies, flowering beds and terraces with great countryside and river views.
