Pantiles forms part of an imposing Grade II listed
Manor House, set in landscaped grounds. Built in 1872 this wonderful example of classic period architecture was designed by the renowned pioneer of Arts and Crafts architecture, Phillip Webb for Lord Sackville-Cecil. The Manor House was converted into two houses in 1955, whilst carefully retaining the original period features and preserving its charm and character. Internally, Pantiles incorporates a subtle modern finish, offering natural light, space and versatility.

In addition, an accompanying self-contained
cottage, lends itself perfectly for relatives, guests
or teenagers.

The entrance lobby provides access to the main
house and to the utility room. The generously proportioned utility room has space for all the usual appliances and also allows separate access to the courtyard.

Upon entry into the entrance hall a picture window allows natural light to be absorbed into the room. It features fitted shutters and a window seat. There is an adjoining downstairs cloakroom.

burning stove creating an appealing setting.

and Crafts fireplace.

floor and provides access to the rear garden,

brick wine store.
