A beautifully appointed Grade II listed period stone farmhouse with several outbuildings, formal gardens and about one and a half acres of paddocks.
Manor Farm is an attractive former farmstead with origins dating back to the 17th century, built from mellow sandstone elevations under a steeply pitched pantile roof. The house has received a number of additions in more recent years, a large two storey extension to the rear and a single storey kitchen extension to the side, forming a deceptively spacious family home of considerable character.
Grade II listed on account of the building's historical significance, the pitch of the roof and original windows to the front of the house. The property offers period features in abundance, yet has the been subject of considerable modernisation since the present owner acquired it in 2002, including re-plumbing, wiring, damp-proofing, the addition of central heating and a number of bathrooms. Every room has been tastefully redecorated and finished to a particularly high standard, all perfectly proportioned and bathed with copious amounts of natural light.
There is a generous family kitchen/dining room with an oil fired range cooker and large glass lantern. The kitchen has underfloor heating and a range of contemporary units, supported by a larder and adjoining dining room with a striking vaulted ceiling (and stone floor). Through the kitchen there is an inviting family room, useful ground floor wet room and a classically proportioned drawing room with working period fireplace.
Upstairs there are five bedrooms, three with an en suite shower room each with electric under floor heating, and two bedrooms to the rear, one cleverly designed with a built -in drop down hydraulic murphy bed to the left and and smart desk area to the right, alongside a contemporary house bathroom. All bedrooms have magnificent views of the surrounding countryside.
Oil fired central heating from the range cooker services the underfloor heating on the ground floor and heated skirting upstairs.
In addition to the main house there are a number of useful and versatile outbuildings, including a utility, workshop/craft room, garden room and a gardeners w.c. Woven between these buildings and the house are several distinct garden areas including a box parterre, sun terrace, patio, outdoor kitchen/BBQ dining area and very productive kitchen garden containing mature fruit frees, soft fruit beds and a herb garden, screened bin store, compost area.
Beyond the gardens across a wide gravelled driveway is a timber garage block containing log store, storage room with two open car ports and a garage with ample parking in front and to the side. The garage has power and lights and is alarmed, as is the house.
Surrounding this are a number of paddocks, divided by mature hedging, one a wildflower meadow, others left to encourage wildlife, alongside a paddock with a naturally filled pond in the far corner overshadowed by a mature oak.
