The accommodation is first class with six well balanced bedrooms, four bathrooms and three large reception rooms, each light, bright, airy and beautifully presented. Complementing the interior is a sweeping double entrance gravel driveway providing ample easy parking and large garden space to the front and rear. 

Property Overview Welcome to Melling Manor, where contemporary design and traditional features blend effortlessly to create a wonderful family home, lovingly maintained to a high standard by the current owners.

The magical feel of this home is embraced the moment you step through the door; you are immediately drawn to the high ceiling, bordered with traditional coving and the crystal globe chandeliers. The original oak floor leads the way to two reception rooms and the dining kitchen. This generous entrance hall provides ample space for seating and storage cabinets, and the large cupboard under the stairs provides hidden storage for coats and shoes. The main staircase runs off the main hall to provide access to the first floor.

The kitchen-diner provides a welcoming social space, with two large sash windows over looking the rear garden and ample space for a large dining table with feature gas fireplace enhancing the cosy feel. A large island unit offers additional work top space and seating for four people along with additional storage and integrated wine cooler. Integrated appliances include a Bosch oven and grill, microwave, five ring gas hob with extractor over, LG fridge/freezer, and dishwasher as well as wall and base units, glass cabinetry, Corian work tops and an integrated sink with drainer.

Heading back across the main hallway, you enter the generous formal dining room, great for hosting those special occasions with family and friends. A large sash window and French doors overlook the garden to the front.

The rear of the home offers the magnificent ballroom size sitting room, enjoying two large sash windows with shutters and boasting a wealth of traditional features including a ceiling rose, cornicing and picture rail, enhancing the traditional feel to this contemporary home. The multi-fuel stove sets the tone for this generous space, making it easy to imagine a winter's night in by the fire.

Adjoining the sitting room is a snug living room, tastefully decorated in a traditional Georgian Blue, with high ceilings and detailed coving, Georgian Marble fireplace and the large sash window overlooking the garden make this an ideal space to relax, read, listen to music or simply unwind.
