About this property

  • Manor Farm House presents a very rare opportunity to rent an extensive family home in an idyllic location. Set in approximately 1.5 acres of landscaped gardens, the premises and property are contained within its own moat.

    Access is via a private driveway and Manor Farm House is accessed by a bridge over the moat which leads to the extensive parking area to the front of the property.

    The main entrance hallway is at the centre of the home. Off to the right is the large sitting / TV room with built in wooden book case and large open working fireplace.

    The well proportioned open plan kitchen / breakfast room easily has space for a ten person dinning table if needed. The 4 oven Aga is built within an original fire place. Beyond, there is a pantry with ample storage and a utility room.

    The dining room has original exposed beams and has double door facing the gardens. The sitting room also has double doors and also has a open working fire place.

    Leading onto the first floor is the wide and welcoming wooden panel stair case. In this wing of the house are three large double bedrooms all with 10 foot high ceilings. The master bedroom suite is fully panelled and has a hidden door which leads onto the en suite bathroom and two walk in wardrobes. Bedroom three could also be easily used at the study due it its central position in the house and double access doors. There is a family bathroom for the second and third bedrooms.

    The other wing is accessed either through bedroom 3 or the second staircase in the entrance hallway. There are three further double bedrooms which share a second family bathroom.

    On the second floor are the two final double bedrooms which share another family bathroom. One bedroom has a further room leading from it could double up as not only a closet but also a nursery / small lounge for any guests.

    Outside the extensive landscaped gardens flank either side of the main house with good quality trees, shrubs and lawns to enjoy. These extend beyond the gardens contained within the moat and a full plan of the area is available on request.

    To the front is a large wooded vaulted ceiling 'party' barn. This has a small kitchenette and WC and has two large working open fire places and creates a fabulous entertaining space.

    Beyond the barn is the pool house which on the first floor has space to be possibly be used as a gym. The heated swimming pool is enclosed within walls and hedging and is approximately 12 meters in length.

    Please note the following:
    - There is a separate detached car port and single storey building which would work well as an office located just outside the moat. This can be available on negotiation.
    - Beyond the moat is also a substantial secure, dry and powered storage barn as well as indoor and outdoor kennels. These are in the region of 3,000 to 4,000 sq ft. Likewise these can be made available on negotiation.
    - The property has been lived in as a family home until very recently. As such should interested parties wish to propose any work to be done, these may be considered on negotiation.
    - In the field adjacent to the property, a mineral pipe is due to be installed. Further details of this are available on request.
