Handsome architect designed family house constructed circa 2005 in Palladian style. Situated in an elevated position with extensive views over the Bristol Channel there are imaginatively designed gardens in addition to a range of outbuildings offering a myriad of uses. Tidenham Manor is constructed from locally sourced material with rendered and dressed stone elevation and incorporates double glazed windows throughout, a comprehensive heating system and many unique features which complement this opulent home. Fashioned from exacting designs by the existing owners, the property provides a significant footprint with a versatile interior and caters for both formal and informal living with additional space to accommodate a housekeeper. This beautifully crafted and sumptuous home is approached via a colonnaded vestibule leading through to a magnificent reception hall with a sweeping staircase tot e first floor and galleried landing. The hall includes inlaid marble floor with ceiling detail and a bespoke sweeping staircase including a wrought iron balustrade with brass handrail. A lantern light above provides light and a focus from the galleried first floor landing. There are three principal rooms. The drawing room is dual aspect with a bay and double doors opening onto the terrace which enjoys commanding views over the channel and a south-easterly orientation. A mottled marble fireplace provides the focal point to the room with plenty of ceiling detail in evidence. The dining room is of equally generous proportions with a matching fireplace and double mahogany doors to the hall as well as a further door leading to the rear lobby and kitchen. The sitting room includes doors to the aforementioned terrace, has a more contemporary fireplace and has direct access to the kitchen/breakfast room. Fitted throughout there are control panels for an entertainment system making it an ideal party venue. The kitchen/breakfast room, considered the core of this family home, is vast in proportions with quality handcrafted units and every conceivable appliance integrated. Beyond lies the Palladian style which overlooks the manicured lawns which can be enjoyed year round.
A discreet study with built in bookshelf is located off the rear hall and beyond lies a one bedroom annexe suitable for a housekeeper and features a sitting room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
On the lower ground floor there is versatile space, fully tiled and kept at a constant temperature and is adaptable for wine storage with an additional room which could accommodate a gym or cinema room. There are six first floor bedroom suites. The master bedroom enjoys enviable views with a terrific panorama taking in the manicured grounds, the Severn Estuary and Gloucestershire countryside. Adjacent is a comprehensive en suite bathroom with a fully fitted dressing room beyond. All of the remaining five bedrooms include en suite facilities with either a shower or bath, differing views and orientations, and indeed two of the bedrooms even includes another walk in wardrobe.
Outside, there are seven acres of formal lawns and woodland which has been imaginatively designed and tended, incorporating the manicured lawns and the aforementioned terraces. The established stone walls provide privacy and a screen from the prevailing winds whilst the walled garden includes low box hedging, ornate topiaries, espaliers and regimented paths. A croquet lawn sits adjacent.
Stone pillars and wrought iron electric gates provide a gravelled drive culminating in a large centrepiece and turning circle with gravelled parking. A gated yard provides secure parking with access to the triple car garage.
Within the curtilage there are a range of outbuildings and these include a fully refurbished coach house which has been variously used as an annexe and an office, and yet could provide a source of income. There are further stone built barns and outbuildings suitable for garden and plant machinery and also stabling, hay barn, tractor store and a studio.
