Description

Old Manor Farm is an enchanting Grade II listed property which was originally called Broughton Abbots Manor until renamed after the neighbouring farm by the present owners. The original parts are believed to have been a late 15th century 'open-hall house' which was enlarged with first floor rooms created and a wing from the former dairy in the 17th/18th century.

In more recent times this hidden gem has been sympathetically restored creating a wonderful home with a wealth of charm and character including exposed beams, leaded light windows, a former bread oven and inglenook fireplace. Spacious and adaptable there are four reception rooms together with a useful studio leading off the family sized kitchen/breakfast room. Upstairs there are four principal bedrooms and two bathrooms, including one en suite to the master bedroom. A further staircase leads to the second floor fifth bedroom and attic storage.

An undoubted feature are the gardens and grounds which extend to a total approaching two acres. The approach is via a long gravel driveway which leads to a parking area and the delightful first impression and one of two footbridges that cross the ancient moat. The moat was fed by the mill stream, part of which runs through the grounds as the Bearbrook. A wildlife pond has now been created providing an idyllic setting for relaxing and al fresco entertaining. The remainder of the garden is mainly areas of lawn interspersed with specimen trees and shrubs including a magnificent weeping willow. Beyond the more formal areas is a further footbridge on to an 'island' field.

Square Footage: 2,700 sq ft
Acreage: 2 Acres
