There is a well fitted kitchen breakfast room with a central island, views over the tree tops and river beyond, access to the balcony and a staircase leading down to the gym, as well as a shower and sauna room.

The first floor serves a galleried landing with roof lantern, well fitted study, a family bathroom and five bedrooms, two of which are en-suite. A further staircase leads to the top floor with the tower room offering ladder access to the roof top and a further en-suite bedroom.

Outside, the property is approached through wrought gates mounted on two brick piers. The gravelled drive sweeps into a large parking area and continues around the property and out. The well landscaped mature grounds extend to approximately 7.12 acres (STMS) and comprise sweeping lawns, mature specimen trees, terrace bordered with shrubs, balcony with impressive views, secret woodland garden with a circular thatched summer house with Doric columns, heated swimming pool with an enclosed pool house, raised vegetable beds and a range of useful outbuildings.

Meandering steps lead down the garden through the woodland to a picket gate. Through the picket gate there is a public footpath and access to the private newly installed riverside deck which offers 68 metres of mooring and three double power towers that could be let out. The current owners have also installed a summer house with store room.

On the opposite side of the river there is a parcel of land equating to approximately 2.92 acres (STMS) that comprises a meadow and trees.

"I have been meaning to 'pop in' for the past few weeks - but not managed to yet! I just wanted to say a big thank you to you all, for your help over the last few months with our move. I think this is the first time (in 40 years) I have ever thanked an Estate Agents! But we found you all to be very professional and also very pleasant to deal with. Many thanks again."
