This fine Georgian manor house presents a rare opportunity to acquire an impressive home within easy reach of the airport and the island's principal schools.

Originally built by Sir George Drinkwater in the early 19th Century and remodelled in the Victorian era the property includes the main double fronted residence, a range of two storey and single storey outbuildings beyond a courtyard to the rear.

The main house is typically Georgian with four square rooms separated by an impressive reception hall and extending over three storeys . The house has undoubted charm and character and having been a well loved family house over many years is now ready for buyers to stamp their own mark upon it. There are many period features retained and the accommodation offers up to 6 bedrooms within the main house and scope to create further bathrooms should they be required.

The magnificent reception hall is stunning with a period staircase leading off. The three elegant reception rooms lie off and have deep bay windows and real fires. The drawing room and dining rooms at the front enjoy the wonderful views to the gardens and woodland beyond. A boot room with a cloakroom and w.c. lie off the family sitting room. The breakfast kitchen is ready for an upgrade to contemporary standards and has plenty of space for informal dining. The adjoining double garage can be accessed internally through the adjoining laundry room. A staircase leads down from the rear porch to the 8' high cellar room.

The elegant period staircase leads up to the first floor landing with access to the master bedroom suite, with its dressing room and large en-suite bathroom with a separate bath and shower. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor and large family bathroom with a rear bay window.

The second floor has four further double bedrooms with Velux and gable windows. There is a study which would lend itself to creating a further bathroom.
