Grade II listed fifteenth century manor house with ancillary accommodation.
Tanyard Manor is a fine example of late medieval architecture, believed to have been originally built by monks as a tannery and dating from the fifteenth century with later additions. Tanyard Manor has much charm, and a wealth of wonderful period features including exposed beams and plasterwork, wood panelling, leaded lights and inglenook fireplaces. Having been in the same hands for more than forty years, the property offers great scope for updating, subject to any necessary consents.
Tanyard Manor and its adjacent Annexe provide more than 7,000 square feet of accommodation, home office, staff quarters, gym/games room and approximately 650 square feet of covered parking for four cars.
The main house offers a generous 5,153 square feet of accommodation arranged over three floors, with three formal reception rooms, a study and a large kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor. Of particular note is the drawing room with a bay window and working inglenook fireplace, and the sitting room in which a fresco (sometimes found in great 15th century houses) has been painted with natural pigments typical of the period by a recognised French artist. On the first and second floor are seven bedrooms (five with basins) and three bathrooms, one en suite to the principal bedroom which is served by a dressing room.
The floorplans and the accommodation list give an excellent overview of the full extent and layout of the property.
Annexe, outbuildings, gardens and grounds
Tanyard Manor occupies an elevated position within its grounds, and is approached via a sweeping driveway offering a striking vista across the extensive park-like gardens to the pond and stream at the eastern boundary.
The property has good leisure facilities with a heated swimming pool, all weather tennis court and pavilion, and a nine hole practise golf course.
A detached Annexe provides ancillary accommodation for staff or guests, as well as office space, games room/gym, storage and parking.
To the east is a well-stocked walled kitchen garden with raised beds, two greenhouses and a vine house.
About 5.5 acres in all.
