The generous plot measures approximately 0.15 acres. It is understood that the property dates from the 18th century and may once have featured living accommodation within the attic rooms, hence the dormer window to the front. There is vehicular access to the side of the house which leads to a shingle parking area and enclosed garden to the rear, all of which enjoys parkland views to the rear of the property. A shared rear access benefits the property via a track across the adjacent parkland (see legal pack).

The flexible accommodation may offer investors/developers a chance to add value during the refurbishment process.
