The extensive property takes advantage of breath-taking views over much of the county, as well as its own woodland grounds, and is located next to a scheduled monument managed by the National Trust, an Iron Age Hill Fort. 

The impressive accommodation comprises: a pillared portico into the reception hall, drawing room, dining room with lounge area, kitchen-breakfast room, inner hall, study, sitting room, master-bedroom suite, cloakroom and media hub on the ground floor.

A sweeping staircase rises to a gallery above with a sitting room on the first floor, which also has three en-suite bedrooms. 

A lower ground floor houses a leisure suite with a purpose-designed cinema, games room, a kitchen area and toilet. A gym links the games room with a sunroom, next to a 62ft pool room with heated swimming pool, shower, changing area and sauna. A utility room completes this floor.

The coach-house-style apartment is accessed via an external staircase and comprises an open-plan living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a shower room.  

Outside, the house is approached via a choice of two drives with remote-controlled gates in pillared gateways with intercom control. The drives converge at a carriage sweep with a substantial garage, with remote-control door, central heating and charger for electric vehicles, plus a stable, complete with light, power and water, on one side.  

A machinery store, a paddock, lawned gardens with a Koi pond and waterfall, plus a garden kitchen complete with fridge, icemaker and a Rangemaster complete the property.
