Netherexe House is the largest property in Netherexe and is the principal country house that served a substantial farm and which was built, it is believed, in the mid 19th Century.

It is set well back from the quiet lane, behind high hedges, and enjoys a high degree of privacy with mature, mainly lawned, grounds surrounding it with some fine specimen trees.
The property has an extensive amount of accommodation amounting to some 458sq m (4,938sq ft) and with rooms proportioned and ceiling heights typical of a 'Gentleman's residence' of that time, along with a number of original period features including fireplaces, joinery, coving and plasterwork.ACCOMMODATION
