    About this property

    • North Manor House is a superb, striking, modern country house in a peaceful rural location backing onto farmland. Set back from a quiet lane on the edge of this most sought after village, North Manor House was built about 12 years ago and has immaculately presented, spacious accommodation (4047 sq ft) arranged over two floors. Constructed with a mixture of brick, render and stone elevations under a slate roof, the house has some impressive rooms; on the ground floor is a superb galleried reception hall flooded with light from above and with a bespoke, curved white painted staircase. From the hall double doors lead to the sitting room with feature fireplace and bi-fold doors to the garden. Also from the hall double doors give access to the stunning family kitchen with seating and dining areas, a wine store and bi fold doors to the deck outside. The kitchen is superbly appointed with Neptune kitchen units, breakfast bar, three ovens and induction hobs. On the first floor is a fabulous master suite with feature window providing glorious views over the garden. Four further en suite bedrooms are accessed from the galleried landing, with a large glass screen flooding the first floor with light.

      Double timber electric entrance gates from the lane open onto a brick paved driveway which runs to the eastern side of the house up to the triple garage with electric doors. The gardens are beautifully private and mature and extend in total to about 1.83 acres. Predominantly level and laid to lawn, the gardens are enclosed along the boundaries in part by a fence and a wall. There are some fine mature trees in the garden including a variety of fruit trees in an orchard. On the south western elevation of the house is a large decked area, accessed from both the kitchen and sitting room. The gardens back onto open farmland. There is parking at the front of the property for several cars.
