Classic Grade II listed manor house in a commanding position above the river Avon
An early 18th century Georgian manor house with Tudor and Georgian origins. The principal elevations are built of ashlar stone giving the house an air of importance and immense character, often associated with the Georgian architecture of houses with high status.
Bredon Manor is an imposing and historic Grade II listed manor house with an excellent range of family accommodation and wonderful gardens and grounds. There is a magnificent walled garden with a range of garden stores. Extensive outbuildings provide for boundless versatility and a converted coach house now provides additional accommodation for staff and guests. The Lodge, a gatehouse located by the main entrance gate at the bottom of the drive, also provides additional accommodation and potential for valuable rental income.
The house is approached from the village road via a long drive accessed through iron entrance gate, with the novel use of former cannons as gate posts. The drive sweeps past the Lodge and a number of magnificent trees, passing the ornamental pond before arriving at the graveled parking area beside the house.
The house is well laid out for entertaining and its configuration over three floors, with cellars in addition, also allows for its comprehensive use and enjoyment on an everyday, informal basis. Below follows a brief description of the principal rooms. The floor plans enclosed within the brochure show clearly the arrangement of the accommodation in greater detail.
The front door opens to a welcoming reception hall providing access to the principal reception rooms with high ceilings, feature fireplaces, large sash windows and intricate plaster ceiling mouldings. The drawing room is an impressive light-filled room perfect for entertaining and features the large bow window. The dining room, equally charming and impressive,
is just across the west hall from the drawing room and displays intricate detail with papered wall panels and a beautiful fireplace, surround and mantelpiece.
On the opposite side of the main hall is the beautifully presented panelled sitting room from which the newly constructed and impressive orangery is located. The orangery, at over forty feet in length, offers huge scope for all aspects of entertaining and takes in the wonderful views of the gardens to the east of the property. Further along the hall is the well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room, with views over the grounds to the river Avon, which opens to an informal sitting room/snug/playroom providing the necessary space for the all-important family hub.
Upstairs there are two floors of bedroom accommodation including an apartment. The first floor features four bedroom suites, two further bedrooms and a bathroom. Worthy of note is a handsome panelled study area with laundry room adjacent.
At second floor level is an apartment with sitting room, kitchenette, bedroom and bathroom. A separate second floor section features two bedrooms.
