Adjoining is a double bedroom with wood flooring and en suite bathroom/WC with white suite and a corner shower cubicle. The bathroom has a Jack and Jill arrangement allowing for its general use if desired. An inner lobby leads through to a further reception room with tiled flooring and interconnecting door to the garage. A staircase leads up to an additional bedroom.

The property is approached through a farm gateway leading over a long private driveway which sweeps up to the property. Half way along the drive is access to the paddocks and stable block which have been thoughtfully planned and arranged to enable them to be sub divided and let off if desired. There is a hay store, tack room and two loose boxes. There is also a hen house and a secure container store.

The driveway continues up towards the properties being flanked by mature trees creating an impressive approach. The principal gardens are lawned and extend around the front and side of the property, also incorporating a koi pond and enjoying a complete privacy with far reaching views. There is also an inner court yard which is bounded by the main farmhouse, annexe and neighbouring Stonechester Hall.
