A wonderful opportunity to acquire a historic six bedroom, Grade II Listed Manor Farm in the peaceful hamlet of Easton Piercy, with about 27 acres.
Dating from the early C17th, Manor Farmhouse is a striking and impressive country home, set within the peaceful hamlet of Easton Piercy. This historic home was formerly part of the Neeld Estate and has now been within the same family ownership for nearly a century.
Manor Farmhouse is rubble stone built with ashlar dressings, coped gables and ashlar stacks. Consisting of two storeys plus attic under a formal three-gabled south façade, the property showcases impressive lateral accommodation and generous proportions throughout with stone mullions and wonderful views of its land. A date stamp of 1631 is visible on the northern elevation with later C19th and C20th additions.
Approached from the original carriage driveway, the property is accessed in to an entrance hall via an open stone built porchway, The generous hallway provides an attractive open staircase and access to a separate sitting room with dual aspect as well as a door to the rear of the property. Across the entrance hall is a cosy dining room with fireplace, and adjacent is the family room with exposed wooden beams, a beautiful inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove. This leads on to a large kitchen with vaulted ceilings and views of the garden as a well as an adjoining pantry, utility room and separate WC. A beautiful original door leads from the kitchen out in to the farmyard from which are accessed the garage and a number of stores, as well as a pretty walkway to the walled front garden.
On the first floor are five bedrooms leading from an open landing with two bath/shower rooms (one en suite). The attic floor provides another two rooms which could be utilised as bedrooms in order to further extend the accommodation.
Throughout the house are generous proportions, original stone fireplaces, fine timber doors and attractive stone mullions. Now in need of modernisation throughout, Manor Farm provides a rare opportunity to modernize and improve this historic property in to a wonderful family home once more.
The house is approached from a private road which connects to Easton Piercy Lane. This road opens on to the farmyard to the north west of the main house, from which three other dwellings are accessed, which were formerly the barn and cattle byres for Manor Farm. The original tree-lined carriage driveway from Easton Piercy Lane is still visible, with gated access still in place, and would be a wonderful entrance to reinstate. A third driveway access is also provided from the private road if required. The tree-lined avenue approaches the property from the south on to the circular gravelled driveway. This area is bordered by an attractive walled garden and side access to a number of the outbuildings. In total the property provides about 27 acres of fields, paddocks and woodland providing opportunities for equestrian usage or those searching for an attractive and versatile small holding.
The property provides a pleasing range of outbuildings including a workshop, garaging and stores in the immediate vicinity to the Manor Farm and across the farmyard. Situated in the next door plot to the main house is a substantial tractor barn with grain store. The buildings provide an opportunity to continue the day to day operations of the farm, or could be converted for alternative usage, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
