Cronkould Manor is an impressive country house extending over two floors to over 6600 sq ft and has undergone restoration and upgrading whilst still allowing new owners to stamp their own mark and create a home to meet their needs. This is a property that is well suited to entertaining as well as providing a spacious family home.
The adjoining workshop could be integrated subject to planning and the bathrooms are classic white; well-appointed but not cutting edge. The farmhouse kitchen has an AGA and could potentially be extended into adjoining rooms to create a large dining living kitchen in line with contemporary taste and style.
There is a profusion of superb light oak panelling and joinery including oak doors, architraves and the fabulous staircase in the reception hall leading up to the gallery landing and matching the solid oak floor which extends into the dining room.
Double oak doors open off to the drawing room to the left and the sitting room to the right. With an ornamental fireplace and double French doors to the gardens this is an impressive room. The drawing room also has an ornamental fireplace and double oak doors lead through to the dining room with a real fire and a service door to the farmhouse kitchen with its four oven AGA.
A large boot room/utility room lies to the rear of the kitchen with an outside door to the rear courtyard and parking area. There are two substantial further reception rooms to the rear section of the house and these include a family snug with patio doors to the rear and a games room alongside. The games room also has access from the rear hall area with another outside door and a cloakroom and WC below the second staircase.
The gallery landing leads to the principal bedrooms including the master suite to the rear with a fitted dressing room and en suite bathroom including a spa bath, mixer shower and a four piece suite. Four good double bedrooms lie to the front, two have wash hand basins and others have built in wardrobes. There are two further double bedrooms with side aspects and these six bedrooms are served by two house bathrooms, one of which has a separate shower cubicle.
There is a linen cupboard off the inner landing area and a potential eighth bedroom which is used as a sewing room with southerly views to the rear. Off the western end of the landing, also accessed via the second staircase, is a sizeable office/study with a triple aspect and an adjoining office store/filing room. This is perfect for those wishing to work from home, especially with the second staircase access, providing minimum disturbance for the main living area by visitors.
The outside facilities are superb and include a steel framed barn of some 1900 sq ft with a three phase electricity supply as has the large workshop integral within the main body of the house along with a single garage. There are two adjoining open fronted outhouses and two stables with lighting and concrete floors and a separate tack room.
The land extends to about 12 acres and is divided into three fields of about two, four and six acres with a mains water supply. Two of the fields are laid to grass and are available immediately and two sown with Winter oats due to be harvested in September 2020.
The house is approached by a long tree lined driveway which extends around the rear of the house to the garaging and barns. This is a shared driveway with a spur off about three quarters of the way along to a farm house and a bungalow. The gardens are profusely stocked with bulbs and flowering shrubs and bushes. There is a greenhouse, lawns and private seating area, indeed the whole property offers privacy without being isolated.
Services: Mains water and electricity(including three phase), Oil fired central heating and AGA, private drainage.
