- Download Brochure
The Manor is a fascinating property forming the principal part of a significant home. Originally dating from the Jacobean period, reportedly being built in 1605, it was substantially altered in the early 20th century, reputedly by - and certainly in the style of Edwin Lutyens, who is understood to have worked alongside his landscaping partner, Gertrude Jeykll, and who may have designed the gardens.
The property which is attached to its neighbour but retains the feel of a detached house, features almost 6,000 square feet of accommodation and splendid red brick elevations, with an attractive symmetry to its frontage and numerous large sash windows, which light the fabulous entertaining rooms, including a magnificent drawing room and an equally impressive reception hall. This offers an opportunity to purchase a home of considerable quality and privacy, together with beautifully landscaped gardens.
Inside, the accommodation is impressively grand, with elegant styling and plenty of its original character. The stunning reception hall has wide oak floorboards and original oak panelling, as well as an imposing open fireplace and ornate plasterwork cornicing to the ceiling. The magnificent 32ft drawing room has wooden flooring, large bay windows and a door onto the garden, while there is also a light and airy formal dining room. The kitchen and breakfast room has Shaker-style units, granite worktops and integrated appliances, while the cellar has a further kitchen or utility room, and an additional reception room.
The first floor has two double bedrooms, including the spacious, luxury principal bedroom, which has an adjoining sitting room, a large en suite bathroom with a sauna and its own kitchenette. The family bathroom is also on the first floor, while the second floor has a further four well-proportioned double bedrooms, one of which is en suite.
There is no onward chain.
This property has 1.5 acres of land.
The property is set in wonderful gardens and grounds, with extensive lawns, box hedging and gravel and paved terracing. There is a lawn tennis court, a pond, well-stocked, colourful flowerbeds and a variety of mature trees, established shrubs and hedgerows. The garden also features an attractive brick-built gazebo, an original orangery with splendid arched windows and there is extensive parking to the front on the gravel driveway.
