Handsome Victorian former Rectory with large annexe
Manor Grove was built in 1873 and is constructed of red brick under a slate roof. The accommodation is particularly appealing with well proportioned and light filled rooms with high ceilings, sash windows, shutters and features throughout. The accommodation flows from the spacious entrance hall which gives access to the two reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room. The partially vaulted Aga kitchen is fitted with bespoke wooden base and wall mounted units with granite worktops. The wooden dresser unit has built in space for both a washing machine and dryer. The family room is accessed off the kitchen, beyond which lies the boot room and a separate storage room. The drawing room and dining room both boast sash windows and shutters. The drawing room also offers an impressive bay window with views across the gardens and an open fireplace. The first floor is reached by an impressive staircase which leads onto a landing. The principal bedroom suite has garden views and benefits from an en suite bath/shower room. There are a further three bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor with a study/bedroom 5 on the second floor.
A link corridor connects the main house to the annexe, off the main hall. The link has folding bi-fold patio doors out onto the terrace. A single storey annexe was added in 2015 and is self contained, providing spacious accommodation which includes; a large, open plan sitting room/dining room with bay window, which leads into a fitted kitchen. Beyond the kitchen lies two double bedrooms and two shower rooms (1 en suite). The annexe also has its own terrace area with patio doors out onto it from both the dining/sitting room and main bedroom.
The house is approached over a graveled driveway and culminates in a parking area with ample parking. Two garages and a number of sheds/workshop are situated along the drive as you enter. The gardens and wide terrace, perfect for al fresco dining, are at the rear of the property and are mainly laid to lawn. The gardens are surrounded by a number of mature trees and a wooded area at the far end provide the property with a high degree of privacy and seclusion. At the south-west boundary there is a pond.
