About this property

  • The Manse was built in 1938 for the resident Methodist Minister in Burford and there is a date stone on the side elevation. The property is traditionally built of local stone with part rendered elevations beneath a stone tiled roof. The current owner has refurbished and extended the property to the rear during his tenure and the property is now a well planned and executed combination of 1930s period charm and light living accommodation fit for the 21st century.

    Internally the living accommodation is set out over two floors and comprises an attractive entrance hall with staircase to first floor and two double aspect south facing reception rooms, both with period fireplaces.

    Situated to the rear of the house is a well-proportioned bespoke kitchen with a range of handmade freestanding units. There is ample space for a good sized table and chairs. The kitchen opens into a wonderful family room with doors opening to the garden. Accessed from the hall is a well-appointed utility and separate cloakroom.

    On the first floor are five excellent bedrooms including two double bedroom suites enjoying views across the rear garden and over adjoining farmland. Bedrooms three and four, also doubles, overlook the south facing garden and beyond towards the town of Burford in the distance. In addition there is a fifth bedroom and family bathroom room.

    The property is approached along an impressive and gently ascending drive which provides plenty of parking. The substantial gardens lie to the front and rear of the property and are laid to lawn interspersed with a number of mature specimen trees. There is an attractive terrace which adjoins the kitchen to the rear of the property. The gardens extend to about half an acre and adjoin farmland on two sides.
