A beautifully presented town house with a delightful south facing garden in the heart of the town.
The Old Manor House is Listed Grade II* and is believed to date from the early 16th century. An early architectural historian, suggests that the original timber framed property dates from 1520 and is likely to have been built for a wealthy merchant as a pair of shops. The house today, with its handsome elevations offers well laid out and elegantly presented accommodation throughout. benefiting from a mains gas fired central heating system, with dual boilers, the accommodation displays many fine period features, including an exquisite and rarely seen, intact wall painting above the drawing room fireplace. The accommodation which extends to some 3,760 sq ft, includes a well proportioned pannelled drawing room, a centrally located dining room, together with a comfortable sitting room and spacious study beyond. The well equipped kitchen by Anglia Factors, links perfectly with the impressive Amdega conservatory, which in turn opens to the garden, as well as returning through French doors to the drawing room. There are a total of six bedrooms on the first and second floor, together with three bathrooms.
Twin gates access a brick paved driveway to the side of the house which leads to a parking area fronting onto a good sized garage. There is a secluded sun trap terrace which offers wonderful views across the south facing gardens. Fine lawns are bordered by well stocked herbaceous and shrub borders.
Mains water, gas, electricity and drainage.
