The combination of luxury and architectural detailing is consistent throughout these two rooms with painted shutters, deep panelled door embrasures, modern lighting features, exemplary stonework and a feast of fine joinery.

Off the left reception room is a library fitted with open bookcases and access to the communications cabinet.

The gardens to the front of the house are laid out in a formal style with a lawned area bordered by well-established box hedging and flower beds stocked with mature shrubs and plants.
