An elegant manor house, requiring some updating, set in a lovely walled garden. Hall, 3 reception rooms, study, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom, 8 bedrooms, 2 dressing rooms, 4 bath/shower rooms. Double garage, outbuildings, summerhouse, tennis court, mature gardens, about 2 acres.
This interesting old manor house, whilst having a Queen Anne facade, dates back to the end of the 16th century and is Listed Grade II. The house has about 5,550 sq. ft. of comfortable family accommodation laid out over its three floors with wine cellars below.
There are many features from the 17th and 18th centuries, including working window shutters, window seats, period doors, fireplaces, a fine 17th century staircase, stone flagged floors and panelling.
The manor is at a point where it needs some refurbishment and improvement. Whilst it has a fairly recently refitted kitchen and principal bathroom, it would benefit from the updating of the other bathrooms and the completion of the first floor shower room.
The house stands in a charming large walled garden on the edge of the village of Milton Malsor and is well placed for access to Northampton, Milton Keynes, with its fast London trains, and to the M1, M6 and M40.

Garden and Grounds
The approach to the house from Malzor Lane is through wrought iron gates on impressive piers to a gravelled footpath to the front door. Either side of the footpath are rose beds, whilst to the east is a rose garden. To the west of the house are lawns and mature trees, including a magnificent copper beech. This area of the garden is particularly colourful in the spring with bulbs and a sea of aconites.
To the north of the house is a grass path, flanked by herbaceous borders, leading to an ornament pool with stone flagged surround and a summerhouse beyond. In the north east corner of the garden is a hard tennis court, which requires resurfacing. There is a vegetable garden and a large gravelled parking and turning area wrapping around the northern wing of the house and giving access to the double garage, garden stores and the doors to the back hall and the kitchen. Vehicular access is from the High Street with electrically operated gates.
