It is steeped in history with past uses including as a convalescent home, a care home for retired electricians and also a maternity home for the local area. This stunning 10000 square foot, 16-bedroom. Grade II listed house is perched on a plateau on a hill and entry is via a gated private drive. The noise of the fountain will greet you along with the shadow of the clock tower complete with an original working Smiths clock.

Opposite the grand dining room, is the cozy snug. The perfect place to slip away from the hustle and bustle of family life or entertaining, to take some time out for a quiet game, chat, reading or nightcap. A little further along the central hall from the dining room, and flooded with natural light from the stunning bay window, is the beautiful family sitting room with soft seating, cozy sofas, and feature fireplace.
Each bedroom flaunts original features, designer interiors and coordinating soft furnishings, along with the all-important sumptuously comfy beds for an uninterrupted nights sleep.
