The farmhouse currently consists of two generous reception rooms, a good sized kitchen/breakfast room, study, along with two double bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Surrounding the house lie mature gardens which enjoy fantastic views over the surrounding pasture and woodland.
Immediately south of the house lie a number of outbuildings and garages, in addition to the separate set of farm buildings which lie adjacent to Boundless Road toward the end of the drive. Together, the buildings extend to around 7,500 sqfuare feet and offer considerable potential for conversion to an alternative use, subject to planning consent.
They currently comprise:
Single garage – a concrete garage with timber doors adjacent to the bungalow.
Double garage – a brick and blockwork garage with space for two cars and storage area.
Stables - two brick and timber framed stables, and two further timber stables with a lean-to.
Wood Store - a small wooden pole framed barn.
The Old Dairy – blockwork sides and a pitched roof.
Cattle Shed – an open front, concrete framed barn which has, up until recently, been used as cattle accommodation.
Barn - an open-sided barn supported by large timber poles.
The land is currently down to pasture used for grazing livestock and producing hay, although historically some of the land has been ploughed to produce arable crops and market gardening. The land is split into a series of separate fields that extend north and eastwards from the house and buildings and generally face south.
On the eastern boundary lies the majority of woodland, predominantly split between “Begley Copse” an “The Soaks”, which also incorporates and attractive lake of almost half an acre. This mixture of rolling pasture and woodland could be used for a compact pheasant shoot. The land is split between 37 acres of pasture and 21 acres of woodland, the remainder being tracks, lakes and buildings.
