    About this property

    • The Manor is a handsome Georgian period property set well back from the lane and approached via a straight drive flanked on one side by a paddock and then gardens.

      The accommodation opens into a lovely reception hall with elegant Georgian staircase to the first floor and with the principal reception rooms to either side. There is a large dual aspect sitting room with a wood burning stove, a second large reception room with original Georgian farmhouse cupboards and a brick fireplace, a triple aspect glazed garden room and inter-connecting external store.

      A well-proportioned dining room with an open fireplace and a useful study are situated to the right hand side of the hall. A kitchen with adjacent utility room/bathroom completes the ground floor accommodation.

      On the first floor there is a large principal bedroom with dual aspect windows, four further well-proportioned bedrooms and a modern family bathroom with separate walk-in shower and adjoining WC.

      There is a large attic with original Georgian floorboards, which would be suitable for renovating to a games room or 6th bedroom with shower room (subject to the necessary consents).

      Outside, the formal garden is laid mainly to lawn with mature trees. The private gardens and grounds enjoys wonderful, far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside. A paddock lies at the front of the house offering equestrian and hobby farming opportunities.

      Planning permission (20/01935/FUL) is in place to build an attractive detached double garage next to The Manor.

      The total area is approximately 1.33 acres.
