Carey House is a substantial country house dating from 1834 built of stone construction with a slated roof. The property has many period features including impressive bay windows, high ceilings with ornate cornicing, operational window shutters and original flagstone floors.

The generously-proportioned farmhouse-style kitchen provides homely dining space and a two oven Aga, and has French doors opening out to the garden, while the reception rooms are ideal for entertaining and make the most of the fine views out over the countryside.

Much in the property was extensively refurbished in the 1990s including the roof and installation of central heating, leaving little to do for new owners when they move in.
