Detached house for saleSquires Bridge Road, Shepperton, Surrey
Sold STC £1,400,000
The Old Manor House is a Grade II* listed detached property steeped in history. Offering around 6,000sqft of accommodation over three floors, the adaptable layout currently has 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 5 reception rooms. The garden extends to about 2.5 acres, which have River Ash frontage and its own private island.
The origins of the house date back to the 15th century, later extended in the 16th Century, reputedly, by Cardinal Wolsey of whose estate it was part. The front of the house was re-built in the early 19th Century to provide discreet access to the bedrooms on the first floor.
King William IV is said to have lodged here on a number of occasions when friendly with Lady Caroline Wood at Littleton Park. Furthermore the house has associations with Lady Catherine Grey (sister of Lady Jane Grey) and her husband Lord Hertford; it is believed that the 2 panels in the window on the main staircase are their coats of arms.
The house would benefit from an overhaul that is sympathetic with the character, age and heritage of the building.
There are 7 rooms on the ground floor comprising:
an oak panelled hall with a large open fireplace.
a dining room with 16th and 17th Century oak panelling and a walk in strong-room (20th Century).
a library with access to an adjoining family room that has painted oak panelling.
a butler's pantry, that is now used as a kitchen, adjoining the side hall that has 15th Century beams and a staircase to the first floor.
a sitting room, once the main kitchen with its original solid fuel range and bread oven with access to the garden and a utility room.
there are also the remains of staff rooms which might provide the opportunity for development.
On the first floor there are 7 large bedrooms, with 5 bathrooms and stairway access to the top floor containing a further 3 rooms and landing area.
A survey report that outlines the extent of the renovation is available from Jackson, Stops & Staff
