A wrought iron spiral staircase leads to a large dressing room off the master bedroom. The fourth bedroom is upstairs.

All windows are double glazed and there is oil fired central heating throughout. Outside facilities include a garage and sheds.

Nettlehill Lodge is situated in its own small garden within the grounds.

It has an open plan kitchen/dining/sittingroom, a bathroom and a bedroom downstairs. The second bedroom, with a feature circular window, and a bathroom are upstairs. Features include a marble fireplace and a south facing conservatory.

The 2003 S type Jaguar is valued at around €6,000.
