The reception spaces have a pleasant flow with a spacious drawing room with central fireplace opening into the living room which is open to a magnificent oak framed, air conditioned orangery offering wide views of the gardens.

The kitchen connects to the living room/orangery and provides a comprehensive range of wall and base units, with granite work surfaces, the normal built in appliances plus a two oven gas AGA separate gas hob and a pantry.
