Ketton is an attractive Rutland village, close to the county's border with Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire, 3 miles west of Stamford. The village supports a village shop and post office, primary school and public house, together with a parish church.

The town is well known for Burghley House and its horse trails, as well as for the variety of its restaurants, hotels and boutique shops.

Grade II Listed, Manor Farm House is a substantial 17th Century village property which offers a charming arrangement of accommodation over two floors. Accommodation comprises four reception rooms, four bedrooms and three bath or shower rooms, aside from a number of ancillary rooms.
The accommodation retains a wealth of period features and character, with high timber beamed ceilings, stone mullions and period fireplaces, contrasting with refitted bathrooms, a well-appointed kitchen and a mix of travertine, tiled and solid wood floors.
The western wing of the house, incorporating the family room and office studio above it together with the barn which is currently used as garaging, is thought to offer scope for enhanced ancillary or office accommodation, subject to all necessary Listed consents.
The front door opens into a spacious travertine floored dining hallway, with timber beamed ceiling and inglenook fireplace. The adjoining dual-aspect dining room has a wood burning stove and provides access to the kitchen and the dual-aspect stone flag floored sitting room, with beamed ceiling, mullioned bay and fireplace housing a gas-fired stove.
The garden room, with exposed stone walls and a tiled floor, has an external door to the rear courtyard, and links the dining hallway to the western wing, where the 27' family room incorporates exposed beams, access into the garage barn and a staircase to the large and versatile first floor studio office, from which an external granary staircase descends to the garden.
The first floor bedroom accommodation is served by two staircases. The reception hallway's staircase rises to the principal bedroom suite, where the symmetrical double bedroom has a large and modern ensuite shower room. The main first floor, with en-suite bedroom two, double bedrooms three and four and the family bathroom, is accessed by a staircase that rises between the kitchen and dining room.
The garden lies to the west (front) of the house, framed by the house to two sides and by walls, with internal hedgerows to remaining boundaries, offering a good degree of privacy. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with raised flowering borders and deciduous boundary trees to the High Street and a patio seating area in the garden's return to the east of the house.
An enclosed south facing stone flagged courtyard with box hedgerows defining areas, is accessed from the kitchen and the play room and offers a private seating and entertaining area.
Currently used as garaging, this large 32' building adjoins the family room, with large double sliding doors allowing access from the High Street.
