Description

Holt Manor is a significant Grade II listed Manor House which dates back to the 17th Century with later additions from the 18th and 19th centuries. It is approached over a gravelled carriage driveway through impressive entrance gates to a turning circle which reveals the handsome facade. The driveway continues to a courtyard at the side of the house which is surrounded by outbuildings and has a secondary access onto the lane.

Holt Manor is constructed of traditional stone with a Welsh slate roof. It has been modernised beautifully whilst retaining charm and character, including original sash windows and high ceilings. The accommodation flows very neatly, centred around an impressive hallway with a fine cantilevered staircase. The principal drawing room has five French doors leading out to a beautiful formal garden with views of the parkland beyond. The dining room is on the opposite side of the hallway, and gives access to the library and study.

Adjacent to the family sitting room and playroom, the kitchen is perfect for family life and is fully equipped with integrated appliances and has excellent views over and access out to the walled garden. Beyond the kitchen is a substantial domestic space including a large utility room and boot room.

The terrace leads through to an arboretum which provides a peaceful woodland walk through mature deciduous trees.

The walled garden to the rear of the house is a perfect hideaway, with intricate planting, a neat vegetable garden and a traditional greenhouse with heating an automatic watering system. Beyond the walled garden is an orchard with a number of mature fruit trees and the hard tennis court.
