The Property
The Listing confirms that Tyrells Manor dates from the early 18th century with later additions in the 19th and 20th centuries. The Manor enjoys a commanding yet relatively private position in the heart of the village with most stunning views eastwards over open countryside and up to the village of Great Brickhill in the far distance.

Under the custodianship of the current owners the house has been sympathetically renovated and modernised, yet has lost none of its original charm and many period features remain. The property is presented in excellent condition and the layout and feel of the house is classic Georgian. Deep sash windows allow natural light to flood into the rooms, which radiate out from the central reception hall and galleried landing. The formal reception rooms run along the south elevation with the recently refurbished kitchen/ breakfast room running along the rear. The first floor offers four generous double bedrooms all enjoying views over the manicured grounds.

The Manor benefits from an idyllic position centrally located and approached over a tree lined drive. The attractive grounds are a pure delight and surround the property on all sides with mature hedgerows and specimen trees gracing the boundaries. Formal lawns give way to herbaceous borders.

A raised paved terrace runs along the southern elevation enjoying elevated views over the swimming pool and formal lawn. Off the breakfast room is an additional paved terrace with picturesque views over the rear garden and countryside beyond. A small paddock lies to the south of the drive and is a perfect size to accommodation a tennis court if required.

Tyrells Manor is ideally suited for entertaining whether on an intimate basis internally or on a larger scale within the grounds. A viewing will be essential to fully appreciate this perfect country residence and the lifestyle opportunities it affords.

The Accommodation
A covered porch leads to the panelled front door opening into the tiled reception hall, which runs through the middle of the house with all principal rooms radiating off. The sitting room enjoys a dual aspect with feature fireplace housing a wood burner. Across the hall is the wood panelled study which also benefits from a dual aspect and fireplace housing a wood burner. To one side of the fireplace is a walk-in store cupboard. Along the hall is the cloakroom and beyond the dining room with connecting doors through to both the sitting room and drawing room.

The drawing room is the perfect size with two pairs of French doors opening onto paved terracing overlooking the garden and swimming pool. The white marble fireplace currently houses a gas fire. A glazed door leads through to the vaulted kitchen/breakfast room, which enjoys stunning views across the valley with the village of Great Brickhill perched in the distance. The kitchen is fitted with bespoke Shaker units complemented by an oak island with matching granite work surfaces and breakfast bar.

The four oven Aga is the focal point of the kitchen and provides the main cooking facilities. Within the island work top is an AEG five ring halogen hob. Other appliances include AEG microwave and Neff double oven. A full height larder houses the integral fridge and freezer. A Miele dishwasher sits next to the Franke double Belfast sink. French doors open onto a paved dining terrace with delightful rural aspect. Lying off the kitchen is the fitted utility room with integral Miele washing machine and dryer. There is a second cloakroom with shower cubicle. Steps lead out of the kitchen to one of the side halls with oak panelling and coats cupboard. The cosy family room lies beyond with brick Inglenook fireplace and walk-in cupboard to one side. Bespoke cupboards and display shelving grace one wall. A door leads back through to the reception hall.

The large cellar runs under both the dining and sitting room with access via brick steps, and featuring brick arches designed for storing wine.

The wide oak staircase rises from the end of the reception hall to both half and galleried landing.

The master bedroom has well designed fitted furniture allowing access to two deep walk-in dressing room cupboards. Steps lead down to the en suite bathroom. The guest bedroom suite lies opposite with fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room.

Lying along the front of the house are two further double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes served by the family bathroom, which includes a glazed shower cubicle.

A staircase leads up to the second floor which in the past would have provided additional accommodation. The window tax put paid to rooms on this level and one can see where the original dormer windows would have been. The boarded accommodation within the hipped roof space is generous and could easily provide additional bedroom accommodation, subject to planning and Listed Building Consent being obtained.

Outside
Electric wrought iron gates open onto a gravelled drive edged by lawns which gently fall down to a turning area in front of the house. The drive continues past the northern elevation allowing access to the detached double garage and around the rear to a further double garage.

The formal grounds surround The Manor on all sides and provide both privacy and protection. Specimen trees grace the boundaries which are defined by mature hedgerows. A small paddock lies to the south of the drive and to the east a further area of lawn gently falls away from The Manor. Edging the lawn is a fenced off vegetable garden and orchard.

The tiled swimming pool is enclosed in its own part walled garden with paved surround. Overlooking the pool is a brick pool house with cloak and shower rooms, along with plant room housing the filtration equipment and oil fired boiler.
