About this property

  • The Old Manor dates back to the late 16th Century, originally thought to be a medieval Hall House and one of the oldest recorded houses in the village. It is full of character features including, stone mullion windows, exposed beams, fireplaces and window seats.

    It has been re modelled and updated over the years now providing flexible accommodation over three floors, surrounded by landscaped gardens with the addition of a large double garage with workshop above and brick outbuilding.

    The main entrance hall gives access to the cloakroom and principal reception rooms, drawing room with double glass doors out on to the garden and fireplace with multi fuel wood burning stove and stone surround, acting as the main focal point. Adjacent to this is the dining room with dual aspect windows and large inglenook fireplace (now blocked off). The study situated at the far end of the house has stone mullion windows. The kitchen has a gas fired aga, companion control module with gas hob and electric ovens and grill. Large freestanding fridge/freezer and Butler sink. There is a useful utility with direct access onto the rear garden with butler sink, built in cupboards, washing machine and tumble dryer.

    On the first floor are bedrooms two, three and four, all generous in proportion and look out on to the gardens. These have use of the family bathroom with separate bath and shower. A staircase leads up to the principal bedroom situated on the second floor, providing spacious living with built in wardrobes, and en suite shower room and separate dressing room area/bedroom seven.

    Bedrooms five and six and the family shower room have access from the back staircase leading from the inner hallway, just off the kitchen. This part of the house could be used separately for independent living for a parent or dependant relative.

    Outside, the house is surrounded by its own gardens providing privacy and a lovely outlook from all aspects of the house. There is a double garage with loft room, currently used as a workshop but could be used as a home office. The gardens are divided into different areas, the main terrace south facing makes an ideal entertaining area with direct access into the drawing room. There is a larger lawn area surrounded by mature trees and shrubs. Walk along the path to the vegetable garden, surrounded by hedging, with plum trees, cherry, apple and pear. Then on to the top lawn bordered with mature trees and shrubs, walnut bush and cooking apple tree, enclosed by a mature Beech hedge. There is a garden shed for gardening equipment and a greenhouse.

    The front drive has plenty of room to park several cars. The other brick outbuilding is situated just the other side of the lane with a garage, and two stores.
