About this property

  • The Old Manor house is a charming, detached stone property located in an enviable position. Thought to originate from the 18th century, this handsome home is positioned within the picturesque village of Shutford and steeped in history.

    The property retains a wealth of period features throughout, but is in need of modernisation and restoration after being in the same family ownership for over 40 years. However, it does offer spacious and flexible accommodation with plenty of potential, and wonderful gardens too.

    Upon entering the house there is a generous porch/ hallway perfect for coats and shoes. Charming exposed stone walls lead through to a sizeable kitchen/ breakfast room with pantry, dining area and secondary staircase. Although in need of updating, there is plenty of room to be able to transform the area. The property has been thought to have been extended over the years, and in addition to this, there is now a garden room which is delightfully bright with dual aspect and two doors leading into the garden, and a downstairs WC. Further to this are two more reception rooms, a sitting room and drawing room, both of impressive size and perfect for entertaining, with their own open fire places and wonderfully high ceilings. There is also a useful cellar.

    The main staircase to the first floor also incorporates a mini landing with an extra WC. The main landing is spacious and provides access to the three double bedrooms upstairs. Two of the double bedrooms feature a cast iron fireplace and benefit from inbuilt storage. The third bedroom also has a cast iron fireplace, but also an added extra of a connecting dressing room/single room and shower room. There is a generous family bathroom in need of updating and an impressive loft space, with potential for conversion (subject to relevant permissions.)

    To the front of the property is a gravelled drive with gates and parking area with room for numerous cars. To the rear is a stone garage with up and over door and a store room offering lots of potential (subject to relevant permissions.) The gardens are just charming, mainly laid to lawn with an abundance of mature trees, fruit trees, two ornamental ponds and a greenhouse. It is a rare find to have such a generous plot completely hidden away, allowing and creating a private oasis. In all about 0.74 acres.

This is such an exciting opportunity to bring a family home back to life. I love the extensive garden with its abundance of mature fruit trees.
