Manor House

Main Entrance Hall
4.50m x 2.10m (14' 9" x 6' 11") The main entrance door offers onto a corridor leading into the main entrance hall, with part Victorian-style floor tiles and part parquet flooring. The entrance hall provides the main entrance door to the front, another door to the rear and window to the rear beside the oak staircase leading to the first floor. The entrance hall also provides access to the cellar. A long corridor with window to the rear, and Victorian-style tiles offers onto the remaining rooms on this floor.

Sitting Room
4.30m x 3.40m (14' 1" x 11' 2") The main entrance hall offers onto this delightful room with window to the front overlooking the enclosed garden. This rom provides a marble fireplace, wainscoting and parquet flooring which is rotten in one corner and will require replacing.

Dining Room
5.50m x 4.00m (18' 1" x 13' 1") Also accessed from the entrance hall, this spacious room may also be accessed from the corridor, and provides a window to the front, wainscoting, an attractive plaster moulding around the light, and a marble fireplace.

3.90m x 3.60m (12' 10" x 11' 10") Originally two rooms, this large kitchen provides a window to the front and side, a typical marble fireplace in one corner and a large granite fireplace in another corner. The flooring is part terracotta pamments and part parquet.

0.80m x 2.20m (2' 7" x 7' 3") The kitchen offers onto this hall with door to the side leading into the walled courtyard. The hall also offers onto the utility room. This hall also provides terracotta pamment flooring.

Utility Room
3.20m x 4.10m (10' 6" x 13' 5") This room provides a PVC window to the side, pamment flooring and houses the immersion heater and a dilapidated shower. This completes the ground floor accommodation.

2.00m x 4.90m (6' 7" x 16' 1") The oak staircase leads up to the landing, with PVC window to the rear overlooking the courtyard and parquet flooring. The staircase continues up to the attics and the landing leads into a corridor providing a window to the rear and storage cupboard.

Bedroom 1
5.00m x 2.40m (16' 5" x 7' 10") This L-shaped room (the foot of the L not being included in the dimensions) provides a PVC window to the front, marble fireplace and parquet flooring.

Dressing Room
1.80m x 1.80m (5' 11" x 5' 11") Bedroom 1 offers onto a small dressing room with window to the front and parquet flooring. This dressing room communicates with both bedrooms 1 and 2.

Bedroom 2
5.30m x 3.80m (17' 5" x 12' 6") Bedroom 2 also provides a window to the front, parquet flooring and marble fireplace.

Bedroom 3
3.30m x 5.40m (10' 10" x 17' 9") Bedroom 3 offers a window to the front, marble fireplace and parquet flooring.

Store Room
3.20m x 4.00m (10' 6" x 13' 1") Built into the eaves, this room provides a window to the side and parquet flooring, and is ripe for conversion into a further bedroom or bathroom.

Attic Room 1
2.40m x 2.40m (7' 10" x 7' 10") The staircase leading to the attic level, offers onto a corridor. This level has reduced head height (1.9m). The first attic room offers a window to the side and parquet flooring.

Attic Room 2
2.40m x 3.00m (7' 10" x 9' 10") With roof window to the rear and parquet flooring.

6.50m x 4.00m (21' 4" x 13' 1") The attic provides reduced head room and is therefore ideal as a store room.

6.30m x 3.20m (20' 8" x 10' 6") The steps leading down to the cellar have rotted away since the cellar hasn't been aired for a long time. This has now changed and it is now drying out!

Outbuildings and Land

Attached Open-Fronted Barn
13.20m x 5.50m (43' 4" x 18' 1") With three stones walls and open to the front, this barn has an old tin roof and is in good condition. Earth flooring and a mezzanine area, ideal for storage, this barn is useful as a garage or for storing large machinery/vehicles. There is also the remains of a large fireplace and a pedestrian door to the rear.

Stone Barn
6.40m x 9.30m (21' x 30' 6") This beautiful old stone barn provides a new tin roof and is in good condition. This barn provides an earth floor and large attic, although the steps up to it have rotted. This barn used to be used for making cider and putting it into barrels.

Animal Housing
10.10m x 3.00m (33' 2" x 9' 10") This stone building with slate roof, which is in a poor condition and needs replacing, is split into four sections with brick walls between. Previously used to house poultry and geese, this outbuilding has a grassed courtyard to the front of it.

Original Latrines
1.70m x 1.60m (5' 7" x 5' 3") This attractive stone building faces the courtyard and provides a slate roof. The outbuilding houses two latrines with parquet flooring and oak seat.

Store Room
6.10m x 5.80m (20' x 19') This stone outbuilding provides a slate roof, in need of some repairs. The interior provides an earth floor and houses the bread oven for the old stone house which is attached to this building. With door and two windows to the front, this room has been used for storage.

Hay Store
4.80m x 5.80m (15' 9" x 19') This stone outbuilding backs onto the previous store room and the front opens onto the land outside the walled courtyard. The slate roof with dormer window, is in very poor condition, causing some of the floor joists to collapse. This outbuilding is spilt into two rooms by a stone wall. Again, the ground floor has previously been used as animal housing whilst the first floor was used for storing hay.

Old House
5.00m x 11.00m (16' 5" x 36' 1") This large building was previously used as habitation, however requires complete renovation. The structure is good with stone walls and asbestos fibre cement slates on the roof. The house is split into three rooms on the ground floor, with the middle room providing a door and window to the front and bread oven opening to the rear. All rooms provide an earth floor and doors opening onto the courtyard. The right hand room has previously been used as a garage for a very small car! The left hand room also provides a door and window to the side opening onto the land beyond the walled courtyard. The first floor is a large attic, ideal for conversion.

There is an enclosed garden to the front of the manor, surrounded by the original metal fence and with stone pillars either side of the gate. There is a large courtyard inside the walled area, again with beautiful stone pillars either side of the metal gates. Outside of the walled area, there is some scrub land surrounded by fields. There is also an area of hard standing where there once stood another agricultural building, which no longer exists. There is also a grassed area to the front of the property. The total land area needs to be measured out, and the boundaries defined, to provide a total land area of around 1 hectare.

12.80m x 12.60m (42' x 41' 4") Finally, outside of the gates is a large hangar wooden framed hangar with tin roof. Again, this is an ideal area for storage or for use as a workshop.
