Tenure: Freehold

The Manor House is a beautiful detached Grade ll listed property set in a rolling lawned garden with undisturbed views to Dumbleton Hill Woods.
The Manor is approached via a sweeping driveway behind a conifer hedge. The arch studded front door is set within the medieval stone and half-timber fa1/2ade. Walk a little along the flagstone passage and you can view the fan light window in the Georgian portion of this enchanting property, two distinct periods beautifully merged.
The older portion of the property now houses the spacious kitchen with its flagstone floor, beams and original fireplace. The kitchen cupboards are a simple Shaker style with granite worktops arranged around a five door gas fired Aga with integrated ceramic hob. On the opposite side of the hallway is the Drawing Room with its fascinating intricate patterned flagstone floor, high beamed ceilings, mullion windows/seat and Inglenook fireplace with original Tudor Rose oven. This room is laden with period features. The Drawing Room adjoins the Georgian Dining Room which has a marble Adams fireplace and high ceilings. Across the Georgian hallway is the Sitting Room which has its original shutters and French doors to the terraced swimming pool.
Upstairs there are two generous bedrooms with Georgian cast iron fireplaces and views across the gardens and beyond to the wooded hills. In the Medieval portion of the house, there are two further bedroom suites and a family bathroom which enjoys the feature of paneling and sandstone Tudor Rose fireplaces. On the top floor there is a further bedroom and useful attic storage.
