Historic house with extensive grounds and barns set in about 1.65 acres in a highly sought after Vale of Belvoir village location
Cranmer House is an important house built on the site of the original Tudor manor house where Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury spent his early years. There is a
prospect mound across the road named after him.
The house is set back from the road and approached down a wide drive which leads into an expansive courtyard to the rear of the property bordered by a substantial, double floor period brick and pantile barn and a large U shaped brick and pantile
stable yard, tool shed, log shed and garage plus a large steel framed Dutch barn. From here the garden with a magnificent 200 year old walnut tree leads into the paddock and summer house with views across open fields.
The front of the house overlooks the beautiful private
garden with mature trees and planting. It is of a vernacular
design with particularly striking chimney stacks circa 1690 and
the accommodation on the ground floor offers three very fine reception rooms with separate garden room, large kitchen and spacious utility and cloakroom with a link through to an indoor swimming pool with pump room and changing room.
Set to the first floor with twin access are five good bedrooms
and three separate shower /bathrooms. There is a partly completed annexe set to the side of the house which offers excellent potential for further adaptation.
This is an extremely generous family home enjoying a wonderful setting in this highly sought after village.
A pre-planning application has been submitted by the owners for the potential conversion of the barn and stables and a copy of the Local Authority's comments are available on request.
