    About this property

    • Everleigh Manor is a magnificent property, steeped in history, with a dwelling first understood to have stood on the site in 688 AD. The original part of the current house is understood to date from the 18th Century, although there is evidence that parts of it may be much older. It was acquired by Sir John Astley in 1764 and the family retained ownership until the 20th Century. The current owners have been at Everleigh since 1999 and have carried out an holistic and extensive renovation project during this time, creating both an outstanding family home and a thriving business in the attached West Wing.

      The principal house offers extremely generous and elegant accommodation focused around an exceptional vaulted reception hall. There are three magnificent principal reception rooms, a cinema room and a wonderful morning room which provides a link to the West Wing. The bespoke kitchen is by Clive Christian, with a Lacanche range cooker and integrated Miele appliances. The house has extensive cellars providing storage, a safe room and wine store as well as providing access to the integrated garage parking.

      Forming a wing to the east of the house, a Georgian Orangery features an exquisite barrel-vaulted ceiling and has been fitted with swim-spa, gymnasium, sauna and steam room. The area between the main house and the orangery has been formed into two generous and well-appointed changing rooms.

      Whilst there is a lift that provides access to all floors, a beautiful staircase leads up to the first floor galleried landing. There are four extremely spacious principal bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom and dressing room. The second floor provides four further bedrooms as well as a kitchen, games/sitting room and a bathroom. A back staircase allows some or all of this space to function as staff accommodation.

      The West Wing

      The West Wing has been converted to provide Bed & Breakfast accommodation over three floors, with 10 en suite bedrooms, a reception area, dining room and kitchen. It it is currently run as a thriving business with its own parking area and access. It is also linked to the main house and could easily be incorporated if required.

      Cottage and Outbuildings

      Adjacent to the house there is a separate one bedroom cottage which provides ideal staff accommodation. In addition there are various outbuildings on the estate which can provide garaging, storage or stabling as required.

      Gardens and Grounds

      Everleigh Manor can be approached via either the East or West drive and is positioned to make the most of the wonderful southerly views across its parkland. The grounds extend to over 30 acres in total. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn and interspersed with a number of specimen trees and shrubs, whilst the parkland can be used for grazing if you so wished. Please note that about 7 acres of land, in two parcels, is let to a local farmer on an agricultural tenancy. A vegetable garden and potting shed lie west of the house and beyond that an area that has previously been used as a tennis court.

      A large bar with toilet facilities has been created with an outside terrace and fire pit, offering the perfect space for parties or events with a long guest list. In addition to the garaging under the main house, there are substantial further garages and workshop space in addition to a large amount of hard-standing ground. It may be possible to convert this space into stabling subject to the necessary consents, as it is thought there is significant equestrian potential to the property.

      An outhouse contains the biomass boiler, which runs on wood pellets and receives payments via the RHI Scheme.
