Alexander McNab, of selling agent Savills, said: “Typical of houses of the period, the accommodation flows exceptionally well, and I especially love its wonderfully proportioned, light-filled rooms and the generous south-facing garden.

“The property perfectly balances period charm – retaining several features including sash and stained-glass windows, room panelling and ornate cornices – with comfortable contemporary living.”

The large entrance hall features high skirting boards, dado rails and a striking chimneypiece. At the end is a study, while further doors lead to the kitchen, reception rooms, cellar and WC.
