    About this property

    • A handsome 17thC Manor house (parts of the house date back to 12thC), with detached gatehouse cottage, all within fantastic gardens of 0.7 acres, or thereabouts, with great privacy and views of the village church, in the core of a small market town.

      In a discreet, yet central town setting, with gated gravelled driveway and turning sweep, within beautifully landscaped gardens, to the west, and the spire of St Peter's Church as a backdrop on arrival, The Manor House is a large, elegant and versatile grade II listed dwelling, with ancillary cottage.

      With elegant coursed limestone elevations under tile and slate roofs, the manor house retains many desired 17th and 19th century period features, including studded plank strap-hinged and braced doors, mullioned windows and stone flagged and wide board floors, among others.

      Entered via a central gabled two storey porch to a wide and inviting stone flagged entrance hallway which accesses the reception rooms, a library/family room, with fitted bookcases, and garden conservatory.

      The drawing room is beautiful and impressively proportioned, with high beamed ceiling, open fireplace, fitted bookcases and views over the gardens. The central dining room has timbered brick walls, elegance and a wide inglenook housing an open fire, with hooded grate, and is walked through to the kitchen, fitted with an extensive suite, with integrated oven, hob and dishwasher, and separate utility. Both have tiled floors. An inner lobby, beyond the kitchen accesses a large fitted office suite, with a secondary entrance and porch to the carparking.

      At first floor, the main landing accesses three double bedrooms, the family bathroom and the principal suite, with stairs rising again to second floor. The principal suite is accessed through its dressing room, with fitted wardrobes to two walls, to the double bedroom, with garden views from its oriel window, and full suite en suite bathroom. The en suite bathroom is jack & Jill to a secondary staircase that descends to the kitchen, which also accesses bedroom 5.

      At second floor, there are two further large double bedrooms and a shower room, with potential for an amazing principal suite, or teenager's floor, as it has been for the current owner's family.

      Adjoining the office, and accessed externally, the large double garage has an internal set of stairs to a large games room above the garaging.

      Ancillary Cottage: A detached Gatehouse cottage within the grounds and on the same title has been let on an Assured Shorthold basis, most recently with a passing rent of £7500 pa, and offers huge versatility for extended families, investment and AirBnB purposes. With open plan ground floor family kitchen there is a first floor bedroom and shower room, with gravelled parking space to its front.

      Outside: The gardens wrap around the house and are beautifully presented with landscaped lawns, deep flowering borders and mixed deciduous trees. Partially walled, they include formal and informal areas, kitchen and parterre sections, with terraces for entertaining and tracking the sun. The property extends to circa 0.7 acres in total.
