Off the kitchen is a utility room that has access to a cellar, as well as the property’s rear entrance which leads to the outdoor courtyard. The living room has a feature inglenook fireplace and gorgeous beams, creating a cosy atmosphere, and this leads onto a downstairs bedroom, which is currently being used as a study. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a WC / boot room which houses the water cylinder and boiler.

The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a beautiful view of the garden and river below and is next to the bathroom which is fitted with a modern walk-in shower. The second bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and has views across the countryside fields.

Externally, the property backs onto the River Stour and the owners are treated to an abundance of wildlife sightings including swans, ducks, coots and even the occasional pheasant and kingfisher! The garden has specimen mature trees, a secret valley filled with rare ferns, as well as an abundance of spectacular flowers in the rose and herbaceous borders. The gardens approach 0.75 acres and have well placed terraces, eating areas and entertaining spaces, with the current owner’s daughter even getting married on the lawns with a large marquee. A double garage is attached to the side of the property, which was a later extension, and could be incorporated into the main home to create an additional reception room.
