Introduction - The Manor house has been central to village life since at least the 16th century and its evolution is testimony to its continued importance.
Originally built as a lobby entrance, open hall timber framed house with central stack this Grade II listed residence has developed into a 5 bedroom home of understated elegance and sophisticated warmth. It is not, however, a museum: it is a home in which the details - the exposed post and truss work, the central brick stack, the inglenook fireplace and the round vaulted Hallway - coalesce into a unique whole. It is a home of possibilities: the Drawing room with its finely crafted, polished cast fire place is quietly elegant, the Dining room allows for vibrant family celebrations in front of the deep inglenook and the Breakfast Kitchen is ideal for informal socialising.
There is a balanced proportion to the first Floor where the 5 generous double Bedrooms, one with modern wet room, are served by a Family Bathroom and a 2nd stair leads past the central stack to an attic which at one time housed WWII prisoners.
The Manor House has adapted over time and there is undoubted scope for further evolution: the attached stable, tack room and 2 storey Barn could be developed into further accommodation ( subject to the necessary permissions ) and the garage and 5 bay, open fronted single storey Barn provide extensive parking for those inevitable guests.
The primarily lawned grounds are well screened and are divided into distinct areas: the northern lawn, with the main access, is traditionally formal and the southern garden, with its range of outbuildings and well, are ideal for more relaxed socialising and family games.
The Manor House wears its history lightly - it is a home of warmth and welcome which comes to the market for the first time in 41 years.
The Manor House - A life well lived.
