A most impressive, historic stone manor house with delightful gardens and paddock
Kingston Seymour is a delightful, small North Somerset village between Clevedon and Weston super Mare on the North Somerset levels. The village lies approximately 15 miles south west of Bristol. The mainline station is found in nearby Yatton providing a high speed train link to London Paddington. The nearby Backwell Secondary School is highly regarded and draws many people to the area and the easy accessibility to the M5 motorway is a big plus for regular commuters.
The Old Manor is a wonderful, historic residence with origins that date to 1086 and we understand that it was mentioned in the Domesday Book. Set well back from the road at the head of an impressive gated driveway, the house sits very comfortably within its level grounds of some 1.65 acres. It is understood that soon after the majority of the house was rebuilt in 1850, it became the village Rectory with high beautifully proportioned rooms perfect for entertaining large numbers of people. In more recent years, the accommodation has been modernised and refurbished yet many of the original period features are still evident with mullion windows, cornice work, architraves and panelled doors.
The scale of the house is impressive with overall accommodation including a garage of over 5,000 square feet comprising a superb reception hallway with sweeping staircase to the first floor, a very bright 28 foot sitting room and a separate dining room with doors that open to the rear garden. The kitchen/breakfast room, to the rear of the property is a lovely area for informal family gatherings and features an enormous multi oven Aga and a magnificent stone fireplace believed to date to the 14th Century. Also at ground floor level is a most generous utility/conservatory, a study and cloakroom. Two staircases serve the first floor on which there are four double bedrooms, including the master with en suite and two further bathrooms. The two remaining bedrooms are at second floor level which could certainly be adapted into a self contained apartment.
Immediately to the rear of the property is a delightful, ornamental walled garden with a flagstone seating area, formal Koi pond and waterfall. The grounds extend to a large paddock and productive orchard with a variety of fruit trees and a row of willows border the rhyne to the edge of the lawns. The grounds afford ample parking for an extensive range of vehicles with a gravelled enclosed driveway to the front and to the rear is a double garage with further parking available. It is understood that the neighbouring farmer has two rights of way over the paddock to his adjoining fields although he also has alternative access from his neighbouring farm.
