This is a village house of great character which is believed to date from the 1700s. An architectural delight, it retains much of its original character; externally aged red brick elevations are punctuated by large sash windows and an impressive stone porch through which one enters the house. Well-proportioned reception rooms, with good ceiling heights, are arranged around a magnificent entrance hall with a fine staircase that rises to the first floor. There are five reception rooms and on the first floor the layout currently provides five bedrooms and a self-contained flat (with a new kitchen and bathroom) which would readily provide an impressive master suite, if one preferred. The house has been much improved by the current owners, having been redecorated throughout, with a smart new kitchen and luxurious bathrooms added.

Outside, the house is approached by a sweeping newly re-gravelled driveway which leads up to the front of the house where there is ample parking. The established grounds are a delight with more formal areas close to the house and less formal areas including paddocks and an orchard beyond. Alongside the house is a detached coach house with lapsed planning permission for conversion into residential - it currently provides storage and garaging - and at the end of the drive there is a detached triple garage. In the paddock there is a detached modern barn (about 60 x 30 ) which also has photovoltaic panels supplementing Mulberry Lodge s electricity supply.
