A charming cottage-style home, forming part of a handsome Grade II Listed period residence

This delightful property is believed to date to C16, and makes up a portion of the distinctive country mansion and offering a unique and characterful home with accommodation arranged over two floors. Period features include exposed rustic timbers, and stonework, decorative stained-glass windows and a rounded vaulted ceiling in the principal bedroom. An entrance porch leads through to a reception room which offers a relaxed seating area with a door giving access to the adjoining kitchen/dining room. Centred around a striking red Aga stove, the kitchen is fitted with wall and base level units and extends through to the dining area and a casual sitting/study area. Natural light floods inside this sociable setting courtesy of skylight windows in a vaulted ceiling and windows and a glazed door in the large alcove recess.

One of the three bedrooms is situated on the ground floor and is reached via the reception room through a quirky stone-arched aperture. This room has an en suite cloakroom, fitted wardrobe storage and an external door to a courtyard. On the first floor, there are two further en-suite bedrooms with the stunning principal room having a stylish adjoining bathroom with panelled ceiling and free-standing roll-top tub.

This property has 0.86 acres of land.

Outside

The property is approached via a sweeping driveway which follows the curve of an expanse of lawn and gives access to a double garage, carport and parking areas. A paved terrace adjoins the home with direct access from the kitchen/dining room offering opportunities for outdoor dining and relaxation. With a pergola structure linked to the building, there is a sheltered area of the patio ensuring shade in the heat of the summer and a spot to sit outside throughout the seasons. The terrace is enclosed by a hedge to one side and a brick retaining wall which affords a sense of seclusion, with steps leading up to an area of lawn. Beyond the immediate courtyard garden area, the grounds of the Manor offer a tranquil setting, with areas laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees.
