Lot 1 - Manor House
Located at the eastern edge of the village, in a conservation area adjoining green belt, the Manor House sits proudly in an elevated position enjoying glorious views over its own pasture and the valley beyond.
The imposing two storey house is of reconstituted stone construction under a pitched tile roof with metal casement windows. With origins dating to the late 60s and updated in the 1970s the Manor House is in need of complete renovation and offers new owners an incredible opportunity to redevelop or build a replacement dwelling subject to relevant planning consents.
The reception hall with internal glazed doors leads to a bright hallway with stairs rising to the first floor giving access to the reception areas. The interconnecting drawing and dining rooms both have floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the views of the garden and valley beyond. There is also a study and garden room. There is a kitchen/breakfast room with utility room and rear entrance which is connected to a single story extension housing the boiler. On the first floor the wide landing leads to five large bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Outside gardens overlook the stunning views. To the side is the former yard and to the rear is a disused tennis court and area formerly used as vegetable gardens.
Land and Outbuildings
Adjacent to the Manor House is a farm courtyard with agricultural buildings. There is a large farm building with part block walling and concrete floor and a further detached farm building with workshop and stores.
The Manor House is accessed over a drive across a shared courtyard. There is a second access to the Manor House from New Road offering potential separate access, subject to relevant consents.
The land, which extends to about 45 acres in all, comprises an attractive run of pasture (about 37 acres) and also a deciduous woodland extending to approximately six acres. The land is generally gently sloping in nature interspersed with mature hedgerows. Of additional interest is the pond located in the eastern side of the land. Currently silted, it offers an opportunity to create a wildlife haven.
Available if purchased as a whole' with the Manor House are three barn conversion properties. Constructed of stone beneath a slate roof, the barns are attached and were converted in 2009.
