An enchanting seven bed period house in a village location, with outbuildings
Sympathetically extended at the front and rear in the late 1920s, the Manor house is surrounded by beautiful traditional gardens. This elegant yet comfortable residence sits behind a refined frontage with large bow windows and an imposing neo-classical entrance.
Within the historic main hall exudes a sense of grandeur which befits this fine English country house, with three reception rooms leading off to provide both formal and informal living spaces. The long breakfast kitchen features a substantial Aga and prestigious Martin Moore designed classic kitchen, with both a separate larder and utility off. The extensive dry cellars inspire infinite possible uses, whilst on the first floor the Manor boasts a spacious study or library and a spectacular garden room with a balcony overlooking the stunning gardens which could be easily used as a private office with its own separate doors to the room below.
Three vast double bedrooms including the principal suite are arranged across the first floor,well-served by a huge house bathroom, whilst the second floor rooms are unusually large, providing three doubles, one single and a further elegant bathroom. Throughout, this wonderful family home retains many character features, including a number of working early twentieth-century light-switches, aged oak floors and period interior doors, with some original sash window shaving folding panelled internal shutters.
The gardens and grounds are exquisitely beautiful and completely private, notwithstanding its convenient village location. The centrepiece of the gardens is the wonderful 250-year-old oak tree in its perfect symmetrical form.

My favourite feature of Ackleton Manor is the near perfect, historic oak tree in the garden.Tony Morris-Eyton
