There are three further bedrooms, all of which have sash windows and views to the grounds, pedestal wash hand basins, with two of the rooms having wardrobes. These three bedrooms are served by a lavishly appointed family bath/shower room.

To the rear of the house is box topiary on the westerly elevation with trees to include maple and sycamore, a gravel path flanks the topiary and leads to wooded areas with laurels and eucalyptus trees. To the side of the main house is a large gravel terrace, bordered by a dwarf wall with stone spheres providing a focal point, beyond the dwarf wall are manicured expanses of lawn which abut further wooded areas which have a variety of specimens to include yew, oak, ash and fir.

The Coach House
This is a delightful building with a gault brick façade to the front elevation, and it provides exceptionally well-proportioned accommodation, with high ceilings and attractive period detailing throughout. There is a well-appointed kitchen with attractive brick flooring, and integral appliances set within shaker style units.
