    About this property

    • Manor Farm is a house of style and charm, with the endearing mix of landscaped gardens of yew, wisteria, alliums and buxus topiary, with the backdrop of a most attractive 17th century brick and flint farmhouse, hosting comfortable and high end interiors. The assets of the two self-contained annexes add a further dimension to the property, alongside a field of solar panels, heated swimming pool, grass tennis court and paddock. It is an exceptional lifestyle package on a manageable scale.

      The Grade II listed principal house, has been the subject of a thorough programme of sympathetic and thorough renovation. The house now presents as a fully functioning family home of almost 5000 square feet over three floors. The focal point of the house is the bespoke kitchen, with substantial central island and Aga, open plan through to a sitting area with fireplace and French doors out to a south-west facing terrace. A set of bi-fold doors open from the kitchen to a sheltered south facing courtyard, perfect for outside dining and entertaining. A dining room adjoins the kitchen, with a further two spacious reception rooms, both with fireplaces and linked by the welcoming staircase and entrance hall with distinctive tiling. A useful utility, garden room/study and two WC's complete the ground floor.

      There are six bedrooms on the first floor, with the principal bedroom with en suite bath/shower room, a further en suite bedroom and two family bathrooms. The layout of the first floor is pleasingly conventional with all rooms linked via a central landing. An impressive attic room with vaulted ceiling is used as dressing room.

      Situated at opposite ends of the house are the two self-contained annexes. To the south is a single storey annexe, well appointed, with an open plan kitchen/dining/sitting area, a bath/shower room and a bedroom. To the north of the house is a further single level annexe, formed from part of the original house so more traditional in layout, with a large sitting room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. This additional accommodation to the main house offers scope for a variety of uses, whether it be multi-generational living or as an Air bnb generating an income particularly given the popularity of the area.

      Much like the house, the gardens have been equally well rejuvenated, with a programme of landscaping that has matured to frame the house perfectly and create an impressive approach.

      An initial arch between neighbouring cottages leads into the shingled parking and turning area, with outbuilding providing a two bay car port and workshop. Wrought iron park fencing separate the parking area from the formal gardens, with path leading to the main entrance to the house. The front garden is a triumph with formal lawn, framed by steel edged herbaceous beds of box topiary, grasses, alliums, sage and lavender, with a high hedges of yew and beech on the outer boundary. The majority of the land is to the west of the house, with large expanses of lawn sweeping away from a paved terrace for outside entertaining and dining, to a heated swimming pool with electric cover and beyond to a further area currently used as a football pitch and grass tennis court. Beyond this is a field of Solar PV panels, and a cricket net complete with artificial wicket to appease all standards of players.

    One of my weaknesses is brick and flint, yew hedging, buxus topiary, alliums and stylish interiors. This house has it all and is a pleasure to be selling.
