The property is located in prime Devon countryside in the centre of its own private grounds, just 8 miles to the east of Exeter, 4 miles from the M5 motorway, and on the fringes of Woodbury Common. It is one of the most perfectly placed properties in Devon, with the city within easy reach, the motorway, airport and railway station close by and the south Devon coast, from Exmouth to Sidmouth, within just a few miles yet without a single other house in sight.
The property was meticulously designed and built for Nigel Mansell in1995. The design, both inside and out, is influenced by an international lifestyle but with respect to the best of British traditional architecture as evidenced by the portecochère, double height hall with Minstrel's gallery, tall mullion windows and extensive use of oak joinery throughout the house. The exterior is finished with stone under a tiled roof.
The Manor provides comfortable but expansive accommodation for both family living and formal entertaining. The house itself is on the edge of a large lake which is fully stocked with carp. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn and split by streams and ponds to make the private golf course competitive.
