About this property

  • A stunning and substantial part of a Grade II listed manor house in a truly lovely setting, being on the edge of the city, whilst commanding breath-taking views across a rural valley.

    The property has a superb layout, the major part on two floors but with a substantial vaulted ceiling bedroom or office on the top floor in the converted roof space.

    The formal drawing room and dining room are linked by a grand reception hall and offer large open fireplaces, mullion windows and good proportions. At the rear of the house, opening onto the garden, is a kitchen/breakfast room with steps up to a garden room, creating a lovely informal living and entertaining space. Off the kitchen is a cosy snug with a wood-burning stove.

    On the first floor there are four bedrooms, the principal bedroom offering an en suite shower room. There are two further bathrooms. To the second floor is a room currently used as an office, but that could also be bedroom 5.

    Formal gates lead onto a cobbled driveway, that leads up to the garage at the side of the property. Above the garage, with self-contained access, is a newly renovated two-bedroom annexe, which was originally the The Cider House, as its name now suggests.

    At the rear of the property are beautiful, landscaped south-facing gardens, mainly laid to lawn and bordered by mature shrubs and trees. There is a pretty terrace from which to enjoy al fresco dining and entertaining. At the top of the garden is a heated swimming pool.

    Adjoining the house with separate access is a charming two bedroom annexe that has recently been refurbished to a very high standard. This property is currently a very successful holiday let (details can be viewed at ).

    There are characterful features throughout, with beams, unusual circular windows and exposed Bath stone walls. The modern, open-plan kitchen leads to a cosy living/dining area which has double doors opening out onto the pretty walled garden at the rear. There is a separate room (currently with a sofa day bed and desk), leading to a downstairs bathroom.

    A small staircase winds up to a delightful principcal en suite bedroom in the eaves of the old barn. This space is full of character, with beams, exposed Bath stone walls, circular windows and wonderful views down the valley.
