The Cedars is an impressive Grade II listed village home believed to originally date from the 18th century. Over the last decade, the current owner has carefully restored and sympathetically updated the house to a high standard throughout. This beautiful family home, offers substantial accommodation is set over three floors with useful cellars. From the stunning entrance hall there is an elegant canter lever staircase gently rising to the first floor. The classically proportioned reception rooms have large windows providing views over the gardens. The Coach House to the rear, is self-contained and has a unique charm and character with features including exposed beams, tall ceilings (to the ground floor) and all in a more rustic style. Currently, The Cedars is being let (occasionally) as holiday accommodation, which is generating a substantial income, but could also have potential as a boutique spa business, subject to relevant consents.

The main area of garden to the east of the property is laid to lawn with established borders. Due to the maturity of the garden it enjoys a high degree of privacy.
