Description

LOT 1: Approached by a short drive past the Church, through magnificent lantern topped wrought iron gates, the Manor sits opposite the charming open courtyard which is enclosed by period outbuildings, the barns, the cottages and the house.

Little Easton Manor was described by a visitor from the East as - A jewel of England, perfectly set. It is very special with its superb setting amongst formal gardens, buildings and extensive grounds with lovely sweeping lawns down to the Great Pond and its central island and fountain.

The house itself dates mainly from the 17th Century and is built of oak studding and brick with particularly fine pargetting bearing many local and intricate patterns.

The Manor is entered through a covered porch with a double sized front door to a wide, quarry tiled entrance hall which leads all the way through to the rear garden. The principal accommodation on the ground floor stems from the hallway with doors to the sitting room, drawing room, dining room, study, cloakroom and butlers passage. As one would expect from a Grade II listed house, there are magnificent period features in all of the reception rooms including large fireplaces with wood burning stoves, exposed beams and lead mullioned windows. The large kitchen/breakfast room has direct access from the front garden and doors to the kitchen courtyard, cloakroom and office.

The spiral stone staircase from the Butlers Passage goes up to the first floor. The ancient, magnificent cellar with a music room, wine den and stores can be accessed either from the Butlers Passage or from the dining room where a short staircase leads past a mural originally commissioned by Basil Dean.

LOT 2: 45 acres of arable land, attached and to the north east, is available by separate negotiation.
