Garden & Grounds
3.25 hectares in all. The property is approached by a rising driveway with hard standing for cars. Several groups of magnificent cedar and oak trees stand to the front and side of the house (one with children’s tree house) and the former carriage turning circle becomes a blanket of pink cyclamens in autumn. Deep stone-built well. The courtyard has wisteria, grape vine and Virginia creeper and shade from an ancient walnut tree.
To the East is a large sweeping lawn, ideal for children’s sports and leading north from the pigeonnier is a splendid avenue of ancient cedars and oaks. Three small, unfenced, paddocks are suitable for horses and full of wildflowers and the neighboring vineyards are managed on lunar-biodynamic principles.

Set back from a quiet country lane in a peaceful, elevated position, the main building has a pleasing symmetry from every aspect. The property has been sympathetically restored (new electrics, boiler, plumbing drainage) while retaining a wealth of original features; timber floors, period windows, marble fireplaces and cast iron radiators. With high ceilings and all main rooms double aspect, the accommodation is particularly light and airy, with intriguing views over a patchwork of wooded countryside. The gardens and grounds have immense charm with magnificent stands of cedar and oak trees and an ancient tree-lined avenue to the rear.
A unique feature of the property is the atmospheric courtyard with pigeonnier tower extending from the rear. Two guest cottages have proved popular for friends and for holiday letting. Further barn space remains for development. In an area of historic villages, the property is ideal as a family home or holiday base that can sleep 16 people in comfort.
