THE MANOR HOUSE An impressive period Manor House providing exciting potential for development. It is set in extensive gardens and grounds extending to c. 2.68 acres with glorious views over fields to the front and to the rear.

The substantial accommodation could be converted to suit the buyer, the top floor for example features three bedrooms and a bathroom and has previously been a self contained apartment. Walls could be removed to create even larger rooms, perhaps including a home cinema. Noke has fast broadband so streaming movies would be easy. The house could also be further divided with, of course any necessary planning consents. Outside there are numerous barns and outbuildings ripe for conversion- how about your own gymnasium or dance studio or further holiday cottages?

The exceptional and flexible accommodation is arranged over three floors. All of the rooms are well proportioned with high ceilings and the upper rooms enjoy glorious views over fields and countryside.

On the ground floor an impressive 25' x 16' hall forms the centre of the house with a drawing room, dining room and kitchen leading off. In addition there is a conservatory, a scullery, laundry room and tack room. Upstairs on the two upper floors there are eight double bedrooms, including a master bedroom suite with dressing room and ensuite and a lovely double aspect room overlooking the garden which would make a splendid first floor family sitting room.

Outside there is a swimming pool and terraces for outside entertaining and beautiful lawned gardens backing onto fields. The Manor House also offers a separate self contained cottage 'Manor Barn' which is presently used as a holiday cottage. The additional stone built barns and stables could also be converted to provide further accommodation.
