Forming part of Strathwell Park, the property is thought to date back to the 16th Century and retains a plethora of characterful features, including attractive Lancet windows, impressive stone archways, period fireplaces and a stone bellcote above the former chapel. The home enjoys beautiful views across the surrounding gardens and farmland from all of its spacious rooms, with its accommodation laid across two floors, with the addition of a cellar.

The current owners have replaced the previous detached garage with an impressive Oak framed garage, with double doors to access vehicles, provided with both power and lighting, with additional storage space to the rear. The landscaped gardens wrap-around the property, with a sheltered patio area accessed from the drawing room, an orchard, vegetable garden with raised beds and a Victorian style greenhouse to the South, an area of woodland and the River Yar to the West. There is access onto the public footpath directly from the garden, leading through Strathwell Park down to the Stockbridge Estate, through beautiful open fields and into the centre of the Village.

The property is located at the Niton end of Whitwell village, which is an attractive rural village with a pub, and the nearby neighbouring village of Niton has a village store, pharmacy, primary school, pub and post office.
