Description

Originally three cottages and forming part of the courtyard of the original stables and coach houses belong to Middleton Park, Manor Cottage is a striking, light and well proportioned family home. The flexible accommodation provides three good size, separate reception rooms, together with a conservatory overlooking the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is double aspect and is ideal for entertaining and family gatherings. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, all with views across the garden and parkland, and there is also a bathroom, shower room and dressing room. The studio room with kitchenette, cloakroom and shower could be incorporated into the main house, or would be suitable for use as an annexe with independent access. In addition, the stable block has been converted to provide storage and studio/ party space.

The gardens at Manor Cottage have been much improved by the current owners to provide a balance between the formal and working areas of the property's outside spaces. To the south-west of the house, sheltered by the stable block, is a walled garden with a raised area of lawn bordered on one side by striking phormiums and euphorbias and an adjacent cutting garden. Beyond this is the kitchen garden abutted by an area of meadow, which adds a more informal element. Overlooked by the principal reception rooms, a more formal planting scheme is found on the eastern side of Manor Cottage. There are deep borders planted with roses, shrubs and perennials such as alchemilla mollis and nepeta and views of the parkland beyond.
