Handsome 18th century manor house with outbuildings, set in delightful landscaped grounds of about 0.9 acres, within a quaint hamlet.
The Manor House is a charming detached family house located in the centre of the hamlet of Heaverham, originating from the Georgian period with Victorian additions. The generously proportioned and well-presented accommodation is arranged over three floors and provides versatile living. The property retains some period features including fireplaces, exposed timbers, picture rails and multi-pane sash windows. Of particular note is the impressive orangery which overlooks the beautiful south-west facing gardens, and the substantial detached barn and other outbuildings offering scope for renovation subject to the necessary consents.
The spacious reception rooms provide excellent entertaining areas and comprise a drawing room with double doors opening to the orangery which overlooks the gardens and has slate and marble flooring. A sitting room with inglenook fireplace inset with a wood burning stove, and a dining room which is open to the kitchen providing ideal everyday family living.
There is also a reception hall, a study and cloakroom.
The kitchen features a vaulted ceiling and is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base cupboards with a matching island unit and a twin butler sink. There are integral appliances including an oil fired Aga, De Ditrich electric hob and a Neff oven. Adjoining the kitchen is an excellent walk-in pantry and additional laundry room with space for appliances.
Arranged over the first floor are four bedrooms, one of which is served by a well-appointed en suite bathroom with separate shower cubicle, a family bathroom with roll top claw and ball bath and a split level gym.
The second floor comprises two further bedrooms and a playroom which is accessed by a separate staircase from the ground floor.
There are three outbuildings, one is located to the side of the terrace and provides useful garden storage, and the garaging and barn are accessed from the courtyard. The garage block comprises a double garage, former stable and extensive store room that could be converted to an office/additional accommodation. The barn has potential to be converted to provide additional accommodation subject to the necessary planning and building regulations.
To the front of the house is a gravelled parking area with a close boarded gate to the garden, and a five bar gate to one side leading to the substantial parking area, garaging and other outbuildings.
The beautiful landscaped south-west facing gardens feature a generous flagstone terrace providing an ideal area for al fresco entertaining. Steps lead down to the part-wall enclosed lawns which are interspersed with trees and shrubs. Within the garden is a paved seating area enclosed by clipped box hedging with an attractive arbour and water feature. In total the plot amounts to about 0.9 of an acre and provides a high degree of privacy.
