Tindon End Manor is a 17th century timber-framed and plastered residence with later 19th century additions and offers flexible light-filled accommodation arranged over two floors with the benefit of additional outbuilding space. The house has been in the ownership of the same family for over 40 years, features an internal oak panel dated 1684, believed to date from when the original house was built, and cleverly combines the amenities of modern living with a wealth of retained character features including mainly double-hung sash windows with gothic arched toplights to the front aspect, some exposed beams, wooden flooring and high ceilings with deep coving and ornate plasterwork. The ground floor accommodation flows from a large reception hall with front aspect bow window, wall panelling and woodburning stove and briefly comprises a spacious drawing room with front aspect bay window and feature open fireplace opening into a triple aspect glazed garden room with stunning garden views. There is a well-proportioned front aspect sitting room with bow window and library alcove, a generous dining room with front aspect bay window and ornate gothic-design rafters with exposed beams, a large boot room with built-in storage, cloakroom and rear garden access and an extensive front aspect family room with bay window and access to two useful store rooms. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a spacious kitchen opening into a breakfast room with a neighbouring fitted utility room with French doors to the gardens and a separate walk-in larder. The kitchen offers a range of bespoke floor units with a four-oven Aga and slate worktops while the breakfast room has space for a good-sized table for more informal dining together with a bay window and feature open fireplace. On the first floor the property offers a spacious front aspect master bedroom with bay window, built-in storage and a very large neighbouring family bathroom with built-in storage.
