Full description

Lot 1 - Stenbury Manor 23.15 acres (9.35 ha)

Stenbury Manor is a Grade II listed Jacobean Manor house and one of the original Domesday Manors faced with Island stone with a tiled and slate roof. It is thought to have been built in the
16th Century and altered in the 18th Century when the west wing was added by Sir Robert Worsley of Appuldurcombe who is said to have lived there while Appuldurcombe was rebuilt. The Manor is now T shaped with two storeys and attics.

The Manor has been vacant in recent years and is in need of renovation but many of the original features are still in place which include a four centred stone fireplace with keystone in the ‘great hall’, fielded panelling in the dining room and original 17th century mullioned windows.

The Manor comprises three reception rooms, a kitchen, study, WC and store on the ground floor with seven bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. In addition there is an attic with two rooms.

The Manor is approached along a shared track off Whitwell Road. A gravel drive over a small moat leads to the Manor. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn interspersed with flower beds.

There are several traditional outbuildings which form part of lot 1 opposite the Manor.

The land sits predominately to the south west of Stenbury Manor and comprises approximately 13.30 acres of gently undulating grass paddocks with a small woodland block and ponds. The land is available with vacant possession from 1st October 2016.

This block of 239.99 acres (97.12 ha) of pasture and 13.92 acres of woodland surrounds Stenbury Manor with far reaching views to the South East. The land is currently grazed by livestock and as such is well fenced with water.

The land is subject to FBT until 31st December 2017.

Lot 5 – Sheepwash farmhouse and buildings (PO38 3JP) 8.50 acres (3.43 ha)

There are a mixture of traditional wooden windows and some UPVC double glazed windows. The farmhouse comprises four reception rooms, a kitchen, breakfast room, utility, with eight bedrooms and four bath/ shower rooms, (if including the East Wing).

The principle garden lies to the South of the farmhouse approached by a driveway to a gravelled turning/parking area, whilst there is an
