About this property

  • Set back in a peaceful country lane sits this distinctive Grade I listed Manor House. Built in the early 1400s, with alterations in the 16th century, this hugely important building constitutes a valuable source of historical architecture over two periods and has been the subject of an extensive programme of restoration. Sensitively renovated, the treatment of the interior has retained and exposed numerous original features. Other bespoke elements have been created to compliment Tudor brickwork and substantial oak framework.

    The timber framing is partly exposed internally with the original cross-entry still present adding a very strong sense of the building's heritage.

    The accommodation has been arranged over two floors with four first floor bedrooms, two bathrooms and two principal reception rooms. There is a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, inner reception hall and cloakroom. The property has been decorated in neutral tones throughout and despite its age enjoys light-filled rooms.

    Set back over a gated sweeping drive which runs past the front of the house, Porters Manor Farm provides a detached oak-framed double-bay cart lodge with adjoining storage shed. To the rear of the house and extending from the inner hall and kitchen/breakfast room is a semi-circular terrace with the remainder of the garden laid to lawn, interspersed with trees and shrubs. To the rear corner of the house is a brick-built granary with slate roof, currently being used as a store. The granary is Grade II listed and understood to be 18th century in origin. Lying to the rear of the main house is a paddock of around 1.5 acres ((currently set up for a golf practice area), offering excellent equestrian potential. All in around 2 acres.

    Electricity, water, oil fired heating and private drainage.

Tucked away at the end of a private drive, I really like the privacy. Stepping inside, the period features are abundant and the meticulous attention to detail during the restoration is evident.
