The Property:

'High Land' is a substantial family house that has been within the same family ownership for many years. The property has expansive accommodation over two floors, with a welcoming entrance hall and a bespoke oak staircase that rises to a galleried style landing. The ground floor accommodation offers plenty of space for family living as well as entertaining and has a large double aspect drawing room with an open fireplace. A smaller sitting room opens into a conservatory. The kitchen opens into a breakfast room which links neatly to the large dining room. The first floor has five good bedrooms and a smaller bedroom which has been used as a study. There is a bathroom and shower room. Whilst the house has generally been well maintained it would now benefit from some improvement and possible remodelling. This property is tucked away from the lane and offers a good degree of privacy. There is a gravelled drive that provides ample parking and opens to a block paved parking area in front of the double garage. Gardens wrap around the house and sit largely to the east/south and west aspects. The gardens are laid to lawn with a terrace, pergola, flower and shrub beds and mature trees.
