The origins of The Elms is a detached Georgian house with the original foot print being substantially enlarged in the later 19th century. The house is category C listed and retains many of its fine original features.

The house stands within a beautifully kept garden which is principally in lawn with well stocked borders and raised beds. The grounds extend to provide further land which is arranged in such a way as to afford a well sheltered paddock.

The present owners acquired the property five years ago and since doing so have carefully improved the interior of this fine house. A great range of well decorated accommodation is provided which is arranged over ground, first and attic floors.

Period features have been carefully retained to include ceiling roses, plaster cornices, timber panel doors, skirtings and architraves and impressive staircase with timber balustrade. All of the principal rooms and bedrooms enjoy views over the garden and grounds.

The house comprises: entrance vestibule with uPVC front door and tiled floor. The wide, impressive hall affords access to the sitting room, dining room, living room and kitchen. From the hall is the stair which affords access to the accommodation at first floor level. The sitting room enjoys a dual aspect with windows north and east and boasts superb decorative cornice and ornate rose and also original fireplace which incorporates marble over mantle. A multi fuel stove is mounted on the fireplace. The dining room has dual aspect with windows east and south and again displays fine decorative cornice and centre rose. The living room has double glazed French door to the garden (north) and further window to side (west). There is an open fireplace with a timber over mantle and cast iron fascia.
