Exceptionally fine 18th century period country house, beautiful gardens and paddocks forming part of an unspoilt valley. In all about 31.650 Acres
The property is an exceptionably fine country house, the oldest part dating back to 1744 when it was originally two cottages, and over the centuries the house has been extended and remodelled to what exists today. It has the most attractive mellow brick elevations, part covered in wisteria and roses with inset leaded light windows, some of which are double glazed, under a hipped tiled roof.
The accommodation is beautifully proportioned, has much inherent character and there are some very fine exposed beams and timbers and yet at the same time, there are no low ceilings. There are also some wonderful fireplaces and other period joinery. The majority of the principal rooms all have wonderful views over the land and literally up to the horizon.
For accommodation see floor plans.
The house is approached through automatic opening gates and a wide carriage driveway sweeps round in front of the house. There is a 3-car garage and garden machinery store. A sliding door leads through to a store room for fuel/wood and further machinery store.
Attached to the western end of the house is a self-contained annexe comprising living room with, kitchenette, bedroom and shower room
Gardens and Grounds
Surrounding the house are beautiful formal gardens and grounds. The gardens are partly walled and hedged. The former swimming pool is now a coy carp pond and the tennis court has become a Shetland pony sand school. In front of the manor house lies the stabling which includes four large boxes, five Shetland boxes and a feed room.
The land is divided into varying sizes of paddocks protects the house to the north, south and east, and it really does make an exceptional setting for this very fine country house.
