Tree Tops dates from approximately 1915 and is a substantial country house constructed from part brick, part rendered and timber under a slated roof. The house and grounds would benefit from some refurbishment with potential for improvement, remodelling and extension, offering a rare opportunity to create a fine country house.

The house offers flexible accommodation with large sized rooms with garden views. The entrance hall gives access to the principle ground floor reception rooms. These include the drawing room with fitted shelves and large open fireplace, the dining room with wooden parquet flooring and garden room with door out to patio terrace. The kitchen / breakfast room is fully equipped with AGA and separate cooker and a range of fitted wooden units. The breakfast area is flooded with natural light with floor to ceiling windows and glazed double doors out onto the garden and patio terrace. The kitchen leads into a utility area. There is study with fitted shelves and stairs lead to a galleried landing. Upstairs there is the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a further five good sized bedrooms, two family bathrooms and separate WC. There is also significant storage space in the loft accessed from the upstairs corridor.

Tree Tops also benefits from a separate office and annexe. The office can be accessed from the back of the house or via the alley leading from the kitchen. The annexe consists of open plan kitchen / living room, conservatory and two double bedrooms.

The property is approached through brick piers with a gravel drive leading to a parking sweep in front of the house. A secondary entrance drive also leads to the front of the house past the large detached double garage.

There are four post and rail paddocks and a timber stable block consisting of two loose boxes and a double store with electricity.

The property lies in a rural setting with 6 acres, mature shrubs and trees, lawn and former tennis court. There is a swimming pool in need of repair and a separate unfinished pool house.
