Brief description of site

The current state of the site is unknown. Sales particulars from 1922 indicate that at that date there was a circular carriage drive, rose and flower gardens, parterre, summerhouses, an orchard, fishponds, a lake with boathouses, a centrally-heated winter garden and a 19 hectare park. It is not known how many of these features survive today.

The site dates back to at least the 1500s. The house was re-built at some time after 1795, then again at some time after 1832.
