Winkenhurst Manor is a stunning Grade II* listed, Regency, country house originally dating back to the 18th century with later additions in the early 19th century with stucco elevations under a slate roof. The main house offers elegant and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors with a very large basement and is beautifully presented and maintained throughout.

There is an entrance porch with Doric columns and a pediment with an impressive panelled front door which leads through an entrance lobby to a elegant and spacious drawing room extending the width of the house and with many original features, two bay windows to the front and French doors to a courtyard at the side. The sitting room has a beautiful period Inglenook fireplace and a door leading to the kitchen/breakfast room which has a range of wall and floor mounted units with modern appliances throughout. There is an excellent Orangery which provides a spectacular dining room.

In addition to the main rooms are a guest cloakroom, a further WC and stairs to the cellar which has very good head height and comprises a boot room, boiler room, china room, store room and an excellent laundry room.

A sweeping staircase leads to the first floor landing (with built in cupboards) off which the master bedroom suite and guest bedrooms are accessed. The double aspect master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom and dressing room. There is a guest bedroom suite (2) and a further bedroom (3). A ‘secret door’ leads to the rear of the house where there is an office/ bedroom 5, bathroom and a further bedroom (4) and en-suite dressing room and a back staircase arriving in the sitting room.

The house is positioned centrally in its land extending to approximately 4 acres and is approached along a winding drive leading through an entrance flanked by two ancient Spanish Chestnut trees to a gravel parking area to the front and side of the house.

Winkenhurst Manor also benefits from a beautifully refurbished former stable building which has been converted to a ancillary accommodation to the main house and not for use as holiday lets, with 2 bedroom suites, a kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom and reception room. The Stables has its own gated entrance from the drive, leading to a stunning Mediterranean-inspired courtyard. There are two outbuildings, one of which has been fully refurbished and converted to a gym and the other to a home cinema. There is also a detached double garage with parking for two large cars.

The gardens and grounds are very well maintained and thedrive winds past a duck pond on one side and a paddock on the other. The formal gardens a beautifully presented and mostly laid to lawn with a large variety of mature trees and shrubs. There are two courtyard gardens which are very attractive, in particular the Mediterranean one which is well stocked with numerous interesting and exotic plants.
