The Manor House is an intriguing country house on an impressive yet manageable scale with some wonderful features. A recent remodelling and refurbishment project ensures it is ideal as a family home and the layout flows extremely well.
First impressions are superb, with a magnificent approach thanks to its position beside the small parish church of St Michael and All Angels. The Manor House has three separate gated entrances and driveways leading to the house, which has ample space for parking and turning.
A welcoming entrance hall leads to the principal reception rooms, with a wealth of period features. There is an abundance of natural light and the proportions of the reception rooms are ideal for entertaining.
The kitchen and breakfast room form the heart of the home, a welcoming room perfect for families. The breakfast room features an impressive original fireplace with a jetmaster wood burner installed. The centrepiece of the kitchen is the large island and there is ample space for food preparation and extensive cupboards. There is an oil fired aga, an oven, an induction hob and a large corner fridge, as well as wine storage and a secondary fridge. A large pantry sits off the kitchen at one end and from the breakfast room, the laundry room, utility room and temperature controlled wine room are accessed. Next to the kitchen and breakfast room is the dining room, with oak panelling, flagstone floor, inglenook fireplace and a butler's pantry.
The fine features and impressive proportions continue to the first floor where there are seven beautifully appointed bedrooms, two en suite.
Cleverly built into the first floor, the flat provides additional guest accommodation or rental income potential. It has its own front door at ground level and can also be accessed from the first floor of the main house. The flat consists of an open plan kitchen / living room with exposed roof timbers, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The entrance to the cottage sits within the inner courtyard. It consists of a sitting room with log burning stove, a kitchen and a study / bedroom on the ground floor. On the first floor is the principal bedroom and bathroom.
The gardens at The Manor House are mature and established, which complement the house perfectly.
There are various flower beds in front of the house and a walled swimming pool area with a heated pool sits at one end of the large lawn. There is an enclosed vegetable garden, an orchard and a hard tennis court to the rear. The majority of the grounds are wooded, including some recent planting. The woodland slopes away from the house into a valley, giving the property great protection.
The grounds extend to about 16.8 acres
