This is an imposing Georgian Grade II* listed mansion in the “Palladian” style with a magnificent front elevation of classical proportions in honey coloured stone with a pediment. The property is set well back from the road in its own grounds ( circa 0.60 Acres ) with a semi-circular drive providing access to the huge front door and exceptionally elegant entrance Hall. The exterior elevations and the roof have been extensively renovated leaving the purchaser to renovate the 9,800 sq foot interior to their own style and taste. Originally constructed in 1820 the property has a wealth of period features including some fine fireplaces and elegant and spacious rooms exuding the ambiance of a wealthy “Gentleman’s Residence” typical of this period of building. There are excellent size gardens to the front and rear of the property with the opportunity for further landscaping.
