About this property

  • The Property
    Manor Farm is a charming package of farmhouse, traditional barn and about seven acres of land, in an edge of village location with the house set at the end of a long tree lined drive. The approach through the land to the house provides a feeling of peace and privacy, whilst retaining the convenience of village life.

    Formerly of the Crown Estate, the house was extensively remodelled and extended in the 1990's, with the emphasis on space and light given the south facing position, with views over the wonderful grounds. The accommodation comprises about 3000 sq ft of living space, with a conventional layout. A large and welcoming entrance and staircase hall leads to the main rooms of the ground floor. Of particular note is the impressive sitting room of 8.95m x 5.83m, with open fireplace and dual aspect with French doors out to the gardens, and the spacious farmhouse kitchen, with Aga, dining area and part open plan access to the conservatory. All important functionality is provided by a boot room and utility, together with a separate study.

    All bedrooms are on the first floor, off a light central landing. The principal bedroom is a great space of 5.85m x 5.24m, with dressing room and large en suite bathroom, with a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The bedrooms all enjoy views of the gardens and views beyond.

    Manor Farm is approached from the south, over a long horse chestnut lined avenue, that sweeps round to the rear of the house, to a gravelled parking and turning area that continues in a turning circle back to the drive, and spurring off to the barn.

    The gardens and grounds are a wonderful feature of Manor Farm, framing the house and providing a high degree of privacy. The formal garden area is predominantly to the south of the house, with an expanse of lawn bordered by shrubberies and woodland, and left open to the south with views over the meadows. Adjoining the south facing elevation of the house is large patio, ideal for outside dining and entertaining.

    The meadowland beyond the gardens have a park like feel with established grazing dotted with fine specimen trees, including sweet chestnut, oak, willow and beech. The meadows are grazed by sheep, making for a well maintained grass structure, and is currently one large field, but could be divided. A stretch long stretch of grass, that could be used as a paddock, has more recently been used as an archery range.

    To the north of the house are further lawed area, with an assortment of trees and tree lined boundary. To the north west of the house is are the outbuildings, comprising of one substantial building of about 2000 square feet, that are divided into areas including garaging, workshop, a first floor hayloft and the main barn area of 13.8m x 5.2m. The outbuilding could be utilised in many different ways to suit a range of requirements.

I love the approach to the house, along the tree line drive, heading away from the village to peace and privacy, yet with convenience nearby.
