A spacious and light five bedroom property with 15.3 acres of gardens and paddocks
Gogland Manor is a charming detached, period property, believed to originate from the 15th century farm which was sold from the Cruwys Estate in the late 17th century. Notably for a property of this age, the house remains unlisted, but it has retained its charming character features.
On the ground floor are three spacious reception rooms, each with period features, comprising a sitting room/study, dining room and a large drawing room. The sitting room/study has a high ceiling, exposed beams and an open fireplace with a woodburner and an ornately carved fire-surround; whilst the triple aspect drawing room has stained glass decorative windows, a large open Jetmaster fireplace and French doors leading out to the gardens.
The dining room is at the heart of the ground floor, with a flagstone floor, an open fireplace, an ancient wooden door leading to the gardens and ornately carved wood panelling. The light, spacious kitchen/breakfast room is accessed via the study, and is well-equipped with a 4 door, 3 oven Aga, electric oven and cooker and an integrated dishwasher. There is also a useful pantry/utility room on the ground floor, accessed from the kitchen, plus a boot room and a cloakroom.
Upstairs, there are five well-proportioned bedrooms, each south-facing with lovely views of the gardens and the countryside beyond. The double aspect master bedroom suite has a dressing room area, an oriel window and an en suite bathroom with a solid cast iron bath. Two of the other bedrooms have en suite facilities and there is also a family bathroom on the first floor.
This property has 15.3 acres of land.
Gogland Manor has a driveway adjacent to the property, with parking space for a number of vehicles. The attractive gardens include a large, level lawn bordered by mature hedging and established flowerbeds with a variety of planting.

A vegetable garden lies within the grounds, as well as a wildlife pond. There is also a well-maintained tennis court.
Within the grounds of Gogland Manor are four level, well-fenced paddocks. One of these paddocks is now designated as rare Culm Grassland meaning that it is an unimproved grass meadow with many species of flowers and grass, never having had weed killer or fertiliser applied to it.
