The principal garden benefits from a southerly aspect and the property boasts views over open countryside and is situated in the popular village of Hawton, within close proximity of the All Saints Church. Recently the property has undergone extensive alterations with the addition of a ground floor Annex, which has been sympathetically converted from a range of outbuildings and is complemented by a modern glazed extension with sloped roof which is located within the courtyard.

The abundant welcoming accommodation includes drawing room with fine stone fireplace, separate dining room, kitchen with an Aga cooking range in addition to the laundry room with walk in Butler’s pantry, cloak room, extended study and charming day room.

The Annex is self-contained and is accessed from the reception hallway with accommodation comprising bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, kitchen, and garden room.
The wrap around gardens are complemented by a wide variety of trees to include horse chestnut, sycamore, oak and poplar trees and the well-stocked insets and borders which house a variety of mature plants and shrubs in addition to a rose garden and vegetable plots.
