About this property

  • Little Manor is a charming period property, believed to originally date from the 18th century, with a picturesque front elevation with brick and stone elevations under a tiled and gabled roof. The property was extended at the rear in the 1970s and 1980s, and offers approximately 2,400 sq ft of accommodation in the main house.

    Little Manor has clearly been a much loved family home, and offers enormous potential for reconfiguring and updating, subject to obtaining the necessary permissions and consents.

    The floorplans offer an excellent overview of the current extent and layout of the bright and spacious accommodation. The house offers plenty of reception space; the living room is open to the sitting room, which has sliding doors to the west facing terrace. The dining room adjoins the kitchen, which is served by a breakfast room, also with sliding doors to the west facing terrace. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.

    The principal bedroom has lovely views to the south, and an en suite bathroom with views to the west. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom; a family bathroom serves the other three. Bedroom five has potential to be separated to create a small study or office.

    Outbuildings, Gardens and Grounds
    Little Manor sits almost centrally within its gardens and grounds, which extend to about two acres in all and are a particularly fine feature of the property.

    The house and gardens are well screened to the front by a wooded area with mature trees, and approached by a gravelled driveway which leads to ample parking ahead of the house; beyond lies a timber machinery store.

    The detached outbuilding has power and telecoms connected, and offers a ground floor studio with a boarded loft.

    There is a paved terrace to the front and rear of the house, offering space for tables and chairs. To the front of the house is the tennis court (which is in need of some repair).

    The remainder of the gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with shrubs and mature trees planted to offer interest, and a low level hedge at the boundary ensuring a wonderful sense of space and clear views across the beautiful surroundings.

    In all, about 2.08 of an acre.

I love the setting of this property, in its own pretty gardens with lovely views across farmland.
