Full description

A Once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a real piece of history. This property is a protected Georgian-faced Tudor Manor of significant historical value. It was bought and re-built by Queen Elizabeth I in 1594, and indentured to English diplomat and Renaissance figure, Sir Thomas Hoby. It is believed that Oliver Cromwell was amongst the many illustrious visitors to the house.

The house was once a court, where tenants or socomen met annually to pay their services and dues; at the front of the house is a mounting block which was used to help the socomen mount their horses, and for ladies to mount and dismount horse-drawn carriages.

The first iteration of the property is believed to date back to Saxon times; a new 16th Century Tudor house, built by Queen Elizabeth I, was then substantially upgraded in 1822 with its current Georgian facade. The house is now being lovingly restored.

This three storied property is a large detached family home of 5 large double bedrooms ? 3 of which are very substantial in size, each being larger than most living rooms - and one of which is larger still, covering an entire loft floor.

The handsome manor house measures approximately 3000 square feet in size, excluding a small rear historic annex which could be used as an outdoor office or shed. Planning permission has also been sought, and is expected to be granted, for an additional, larger garden annex which could serve as an office, playroom, or private cinema, therefore providing the home with two additional useful external spaces.

The house is accessed via a remote-controlled electric gate and gravel driveway with space for several cars, and whilst the generously sized house and garden provides ample space for a large family.

This 5 bedroom 2 bathroom house is presently under a full renovation. The current owner is bringing the building and surrounding garden back to its former Glory. With top specifications throughout, This Grade 11 listed building has a wealth of original features from open fire places, original solid floor boards and boot room that will serve as a utility area, plus many more.
