A ten-bed country home with a pool is on the market for the first time in 37 years.

The imposing Arts and Crafts-inspired property, called Shepherds, spans more than 6,600 square feet and is on the market for £3 million. 

Estate agents Jackson-Stops said it is "full of classic 1930s style and elegance".

This includes plenty of original features such as the wooden beamed ceilings and "carved linenfold doors".
