Description

Description

The Manor House is a striking and elegant Grade II listed country house of brick elevations with stone dressings under a stone slate roof and relieved by stone mullioned windows with timber paned casements. Enjoying a spectacular location on the edge of the village and benefitting from far reaching views over the surrounding countryside, the house was built in c1840 and remodelled in c1880, creating a truly wonderful family home.

The principal reception rooms lead from the welcoming wood panelled entrance hall, befitting of a house of this grandeur. These include the large, well-proportioned drawing room with fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room, study/sitting room and billiards room. Doors lead from the dining room and billiard room into an inner hallway, which in turn takes you through into the kitchen/breakfast room, a spacious room with lovely views out over the gardens.

The larder and boot room complete the ground floor accommodation and steps lead down from the inner hallway to a large and impressive wine cellar.

The sweeping staircase leads to the landing on the first floor. The nine bedroom, two bathroom layout arranged over the first and second floors makes for comfortable family living. The substantial principal bedroom, with plentiful built in wardrobes, enjoys wonderful westerly views out over the garden and beyond. Given the wealth of space on offer, the property provides flexible accommodation throughout and some bedrooms could easily be converted into home offices and/or a children's playroom, should that be preferred.

The property has enormous potential to be enhanced and updated subject to the necessary planning permissions.

Outside

The Manor House is approached through double gates leading to a large, cobbled parking area with space for a multitude of vehicles. There is a four bay car port and a fabulous old Coach House, which has the potential to be converted into further accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

The house enjoys a delightful mature garden and grounds and is set in approximately 11.15 acres. The garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with pathways and with an array of mature trees and shrubs. The area by the lake is the perfect place to relax and unwind. There are also many wonderful spots in this expansive garden from where you can enjoy the far-reaching views.

Situation

The Manor House is situated on the edge of the pretty Wiltshire village of Clyffe Pypard. The house sits in a prominent position with panoramic and open views across the dramatic landscape and stunning countryside. Clyffe Pypard is set below a wooded part of the hill known as Clyffe Hanging and has a parish church.
