Internally, the spacious and versatile accommodation has been thoughtfully designed to take full advantage of the glorious outlook and is ideally suited to a variety of lifestyle with potential for a self-contained annexe if required. Under the current ownership, the property has undergone a programme of improvements and is presented in excellent order with every modern convenience catered for.

Upstairs there are two generous double bedrooms, each with ensuite facilities, built-in wardrobes and balconies which are the optimum place to enjoy the glorious views.

Tucked away within the grounds is the impressive, historic lime kiln for which the property was named, and the plot is consequently designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
