The Story

CHARACTER FEATURES
The Grade II Listed Manor House dates back to the Georgian era but has later additions. It is believed a house has been on the site since the 1300s.
“The house retains period features, some of which date back to Gerogian and Victorian times. There is original stone flooring in the hall and a front door with Victorian stained glass”. The kitchen and family room are heavily beamed but the high ceilings keep the rooms feeling light.
While the historic character of the house has been carefully retained, the owners have enhanced the property with a new kitchen and bathroom.
“We gained permission to move it into one of the reception rooms, which allowed us to create a comfortable, kitchen breakfast room, with plenty of space for a table. We also reconfigured one of the bedrooms and family bathroom.”

SUPERB SPACE
The space and configuration of the The Manor House works well for entertaining, bringing up a family and working from home with BT Infinity broadband installed. The ground floor of The Manor House offers generous reception space. In addition to the kitchen breakfast room, there is a drawing room, dining room, study and family room or snug. There are also stairs down to the cellar.
