The present Owners have updated appointments in many areas and the property is also offered in tasteful and lovely decorative order throughout. Built of rendered elevations with attractive coped verges under clay pan tiled roofs, Newton House comprises an excellent family home affording three reception rooms together with a good sized kitchen/breakfast room with five bedrooms at first floor level, the main bedroom having en suite dressing area and shower facilities.

The house and cottages are set within attractive grounds. Within the main garden lies a good size Garden Room which offers great flexibility; giving extra space for a variety of activities Newton House is one of the best examples of its type to come to the market in the area for some time and is thoroughly recommended for inspection to the most discerning of buyers.
