About this property

  • Believed to date back to the 17th Century, Westhorpe Manor is a charming village property, previously part of Marston Estate. It is not listed, but is situated within the conservation area.

    Upon entering the property, you are welcomed into an impressive drawing room which was once two separate rooms. It has now been opened into one spacious room, filled with period features such as stone mullion windows, an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, exposed stone wall and beams, and also window seats. Leading off of the drawing room is the garden room. Another well-proportioned room with lots of light, underfloor heating and access to the garden.

    On the other side of the house is the kitchen and informal dining area. The kitchen is a good size and has an island in the middle, making it the perfect hub for a family. There is space for seating and a dining table, a log burner, Rayburn, electric hob and oven, a good sized pantry and plenty of other storage cupboards. Next to the kitchen is a generous boot room, cloakroom and utility room, perfect for coming in out of the cold with muddy dogs. The utility room offers underfloor heating, separate sink and space for a washing machine/ tumble dryer etc.

    Upstairs, leading off a light- filled landing there is the principal bedroom with its own fireplace and separate bathroom. There are a further two impressive size double bedrooms with a shower room and separate WC. On the second floor, there is a further two generous double bedrooms and a separate shower room in between.

    To the rear of the property, the garden is full of character and mainly laid to lawn with shrub borders, gravel pathways, mature trees and a wonderful patio area with pergola. The perfect space for summer entertaining with a south facing garden. The driveway is gated and boasts a newly built garage and double car port, with space for more parking on the drive. There is also an outer stone building which is currently being used as an office. It has power, lighting, heating and superfast broadband.
