Description

Records indicate that the Manor was held by the heirs of Robert de Maizey in the 13th century and subsequently passed to the Hungerford family in 1469, however the main façade of the house is mentioned by Pevsner as dating from the Jacobean period and a date stone showing 1636 is carved at the top of the pediment to the front door.

The property is Grade II* listed and is built of local banded sarsen stone and knapped flints with some fine architectural features including arched windows, stone mullions and carved stone pediment to the front door. Some of the rooms are wood panelled.

The property has been well maintained and is capable of further improvements. Planning consent has been granted to re-configure the utility and rear lobby area to create a breakfast room. There is also a lapsed consent to convert part of the outbuildings to create a cottage with 3 en suite bedrooms, sitting room, games room and playroom. Our client has re-applied for this latter consent.

Ogbourne Maisey Manor is approached through a pair of fine gates leading to a gravel sweep at the front of the house. A wrought iron gate leads to the partly walled garden. The infant River Og borders the garden to the eastern side. The area hatched on the plan on the back of this brochure is leasehold with over 70 years unexpired.
