A charming Grade II listed Victorian house in the highly sought-after area of Queens Park.
Manor House is a wonderful Grade II listed family home, beautifully maintained and presented by the current owners. There are a number of period features throughout, all of which have been carefully blended with modern, everyday living.
The property occupies a delightful position on Queens Park Road, with vehicular access to the garage and parking situated off Northern Pathway.
An enclosed porch leads through to the bright and airy entrance hall, off which the principal reception rooms are centred.
To the left of the hall is the dining room, a magnificent room with dual aspect windows to the front and side. On the opposite side of the hall the drawing room is a lovely space, with French doors built into a bay and an open fire set within a beautiful surround.
The study is another substantial reception room with fitted shelving and storage. Adjacent to this, and accessed off the hall, is the morning room which has a southerly orientation and double doors leading to the rear garden. There is a small w.c. off this room and built-in cupboards.
Adjoining the morning room is the breakfast kitchen which is a well-equipped room with a range of base and wall units in addition to a stylish central island.
On the first floor there is an impressive master bedroom with an adjoining laundry room. A large dressing room (with fitted wardrobes and drawers) serves the master bedroom but could also be used as an additional bedroom.
The same can be said for the sitting room on this floor. The owners are currently using this as a first floor reception space but the room could easily be used as another bedroom. A further bedroom and a large family bathroom complete the accommodation on this floor.
On the second floor there are four further bedrooms, all of which are centred around an impressive galleried landing. There is a second family bathroom.
The gardens at Manor House are delightful. The front is mainly laid to lawn with a number of attractive shrubs, trees and hedging creating privacy to the boundaries.
The rear garden is south-facing and has been beautifully landscaped. A large patio provides a wonderful space in which to relax or entertain and the lawn wraps around the house to meet the gardens at the front.

It is rare to find such a substantial house in close proximity to the city centre but Manor House certainly fits the bill. The accommodation is beautifully presented and the gardens are delightful.Pauline Kay
