There are seven bedrooms (three suites) over two floors and a separate shower room and cloakroom to the second floor serving the bedrooms on this floor. The triple aspect master bedroom is particularly impressive with a dramatically spacious floor area, Juliette balcony enjoying views of the garden, dressing room and en-suite bathroom.

Located within an area designated as 'Historic Parks and Gardens', the Old Arboretum is approached through a pair of wooden gates, to a sweeping tree lined driveway leading to parking and turning for several vehicles and access to the triple garage, coach house, main house and established grounds.

The attractive Georgian style coach house offers potential for a variety of uses, with a door to the front providing access to the lobby/store room and cloakroom with a staircase leading to the fabulous triple aspect vaulted games room/office with Juliette balcony to one end and external door and staircase to the rear. To the ground floor is the alarmed triple garage with three pairs of part glazed arched double doors to the front, power and light and outside lighting.

The superb established gardens and grounds surround the property with a raised south facing terrace running alongside the kitchen/dining/family room, second terrace to the rear, lawns interspersed with a variety of specimen trees including a fine Beech, fenced dog run, box hedging and outside lighting.
