Part of a wider ‘hamlet’ of nine private properties, the Manor House itself has been divided into three properties, of which Landford Manor forms the principal part. In 2003, a previous owner undertook a comprehensive programme of restoration in conjunction with Historic England. The inherent character and architectural detail throughout the house was meticulously retained and restored but is now fitted with 21st Century services. The current owner bought Landford Manor in 2016 and has taken the Manor to another level, with an exceptional quality of finish and attention to detail throughout. No expense has been spared to ensure that the house functionality aligns with the beauty and high quality of the finish, including a state of the art security system around the house and across the grounds. Given the need for home working, there are a number of options to create a special home office within the house.

A magnificent central front door opens into a fine welcoming reception hall, panelled to dado height and ornamental plaster panelling above. Many of the rooms boast fine panelling, ornamental architrave and plaster work, stone mullion windows and tall ceilings. There is a baronial full height panelled drawing room with dining and study areas. It has a fine fireplace with a stone surround and carved mantelpiece over. There is a superb boot/rod room, ideal for country enthusiasts, with off-lying WC and door out to the rear loggia and garden terraces. The kitchen/breakfast room, panelled, was thought to be the original library. It is superbly fitted with bespoke hand crafted units, which have polished granite work surfaces. Appliances include a four oven Aga, dishwasher, induction hob and oven, microwave, further oven, refrigerator/freezer and a separate freezer. An island unit and kitchen table have granite tops to match the main units. Off the kitchen is a panelled sitting room/playroom with wood-burning stove.

In 2018, the owner undertook a major refurbishment of the cellar. The works included installing an automatic glass door in the floor, creating an open bar area with Vodka chiller, restoring a barrel-vaulted wine cellar and creating a chill/media area (note not fitted). The basement floor has air circulation, mood lighting and also discreetly houses much of the house plant and infrastructure.

A magnificent staircase rises up to a long landing which has decorative panelling and cornicing. The bedroom to the principal suite is panelled to dado height, has a marble fireplace surround and two corner built-in wardrobe cupboards. There are fine views down the garden and over the ornamental pond and bird bath. The adjoining bathroom has a free-standing bath, dual sinks, wall mounted TV and walk-in shower. There are two further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, with a laundry/utility room and adjoining store. Stairs lead to the second floor which has been fitted with under-floor heating. There is a superb bedroom suite with vaulted ceiling, a sitting room and en suite shower room. There is a further bedroom with family bathroom opposite; this bathroom has additional laundry facilities. A door from the landing leads out to a small roof terrace. Lastly, a self-contained flat provides a kitchen/living area with two off-lying bedrooms and a shower room. The living area is presently used as a gym.

GARDENS & GROUNDS The Landford Manor estate is entered through tall brick pillars with curved walls to either side, which are Grade II listed in their own right, leading onto the shared driveway to all properties. Landford Manor is the first property on the right, with automated gates opening on to a private driveway to the magnificent front elevation, with ample gravelled parking. The drive is encompassed by lawn and there is a pretty circular flowerbed. The base of the house has shrub borders, and the western side is walled, planted with yew trees, and beyond is the village church. The lawn continues round the western end of the house to the principal garden, which faces south. There are three main terraces, all of which have a power supply to them.

The centre terrace has part of the original formal garden with a central ornamental pond enclosed by hedging and a brick wall and stone enclosed paved beds. On the western side is the main pleasure lawn with a fine array of broadleaf trees including some superb Copper Beech. The owner installed a large timber-framed outbuilding for stores and garden machinery in 2017. There is walkway tunnel through a dense bank of rhododendrons on the lower terrace. The private gardens extend to about 1.4 acres.

Below the private gardens are the communal grounds and meadows that are studded with some very fine varieties of trees and they lead down to the River Blackwater. There is a hard surfaced communal tennis court. The communal grounds amount to a further 3.5 acres.

FIXTURES & FITTINGS All fitted carpets, curtains, blinds and light fittings are excluded from the sale but may be available by negotiation. Some furniture, garden ornaments and equipment may be available to purchase, subject to negotiation.

AGENTS’ NOTE Each property within the wider Landford Manor estate contributes £360pa towards the maintenance of the shared driveway and communal grounds.

This property has 1.5 acres of land.
