The gardens are simply stunning and extremely well manicured. The sheer size of this property, it's gardens, lawns, flower beds, vegetable patches and fruit trees. The current owners employ a gardener for 1 day a week meaning they spend their time enjoying its splendor with a glass of wine, occasionally they do some of the fun jobs like planting, collecting eggs or picking fruit. The offering here is an opportunity for a change of lifestyle. Children growing up in surroundings like these could benefit from the additional outdoor activities at their finger tips, for a couple this property is sheer indulgence. Whether you employ someone or have the time to do it yourself it would be equally rewarding.

Built circa mid 14th Century as a ‘Hall House’ the property has experienced many different uses and is steeped in history worthy of it’s own book, our local, experienced viewing expert can discuss this with you on location. Now called Woodreeves this was originally “The Manor House”. Given it’s History and beauty it’s been awarded Grade II listed status to protect its external grandeur and its equally impressive internal structure. It’s rare to have a listed property that is so dynamic in terms of uses and potential to configure it to suit specific requirements.

The house itself has many stunning period features not least the inglenook fireplace using Queen Anne brickwork, King & Queen posts (supports), oak mullion windows, oak panelling and flooring. There has been no expense spared in the sympathetic and recent updating. For example; the green (marble in appearance) sides in one of the bathrooms is a fossil sourced from deep under a riverbed in Brazil. It’s touches like this that make this property one of the most unique and beautiful in the valuers opinion.

The gardens are carefully designed to maximise colour throughout the year using exotic and native perennials, evergreen plants and trees, fruit trees and wonderfully manicured lawns. There are so many separate areas to explore and enjoy. When you think you’ve seen it all you turn a corner and find even more. The garden can be enjoyed from the veranda on the Pavilion which offers superb ‘Al Fresco’ dining. Part of the veranda is covered and part is open, there is currently a hot tub in gorgeous surroundings, this is negotiable. At the rear of the grounds is a paddock perfect for animals and or a small pony.

There is potential to annex off a portion of the house, this could provide independent entrance, bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and lounge.
