    About this property

    • Little Manor is a little gem, tucked away within the village, in a private secluded position. The house is full of character and charm with thatched roof, stone mullion windows, flag stone floors, and exposed overhead beams. The ground floor reception rooms have high ceilings and offer generous room proportions.

      The hall with tiled floor leads to the cloakroom and utility/boot room with entrance door to the herb garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is the hub of the house with south facing stone mullion windows and window seat, with plenty of space for a family dining table. This leads through into the spacious dining room with exposed stone walls, parquet flooring and wood burning stove, ideal for family entertaining. Glazed doors lead out onto the pretty garden. The large sitting room with south facing window seats, has flagstone floors and fireplace with access to the original front door via a separate passageway. The cellar is accessed via stone steps providing useful storage space.

      Upstairs there are four bedrooms including the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms.

      Outside the gardens consist of the orchard with mature fruit trees, the sunken garden with pond, the herb garden and vegetable working garden. All interspersed with a variety of mature English country garden plants including wisteria, honey suckle, clematis, and winter jasmine. The vegetable garden has a greenhouse with electric points, and also provides some flat lawn for children to play on.

      There is a separate stone detached thatched barn providing very useful storage space for garden machinery and larger items, which could be converted into a studio/annex subject to planning consent. The brick stable block provides undercover parking for vehicles as well as the addition of two stables. There is parking for several vehicles on the private drive. This is all situated within about 0.4 acres. There is also the option to rent further land of 1.75 acres adjacent to the drive for £300 per annum (at time of print).

      This property would suit those looking for a bolt hole in the country or family's upsizing wanting more outdoor space with the opportunity to rejuvenate the existing living accommodation and outbuildings.

    I find it amazing that this house is so centrally located within the village and offers so much privacy. A real hideaway and exciting prospect for the next custodian.
