Describing the outside of the home, a spokesman for Savills said: “The house is approached by a long, private lime tree-lined driveway passing through a set of gates.

“The drive sweeps past The Lodge between paddocks and extensive parkland. The drive bends right and passes through a second electronically operated gate for the main house.

The inside of the main house also impresses.
