A beautiful Grade II* listed Manor House with some exceptional architectural features and fine proportions. Complementing the house is a coach house cottage, range of outbuildings and equestrian facilities, all surrounded by magnificent mature gardens and grounds. About 34 acres

The Manor House is an exceptional family home with spacious accommodation combined with intricate detailing, original windows with working shutters and some beautiful plaster work and 17th century panelling. The gardens surrounding the house are special and do generate public interest.

The principal rooms on the ground floor are the billiard room, drawing room, sitting room, dining room and kitchen / breakfast room. These are complemented by a study, extensive cellars, boot room and cloakroom.

The magnificent staircase hall leads up to the bedroom accommodation with a total of 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. There are 4 additional second floor rooms which could also be used as additional sitting rooms, play rooms, or studies if required.

2 of the bedrooms and a bathroom can be separated to create a self-contained annexe with its own staircase.

The Coach House comprises a 2 bedroom detached cottage, ideal for family or staff. There is a private garden to the rear.

The new garage has space for 4 large vehicles, and the vaulted ceiling allows space for a horse lorry in the central section. A workshop is attached to the rear.

A very attractive traditional stable block sits to the east of the house with 3 oak framed boxes and cobbled flooring. To the rear of the stables is a large barn containing further stables and storage, with a lean-to store and compost storage spaces outside as well as a double tractor shed. The land stretches out to the north east.
