More Details - Rillington Manor was built for W H Hudleston in 1913 and constructed in red brick and pantile. It makes a statement with a long, sweeping driveway that arrives at the monumental central entrance, comprising a double panelled door in a grand sandstone doorcase with a motif and a pediment beneath three cambered arches. Much of the original architecture and interior design has survived intact with wall and ceiling mouldings, wall panelling, panelled doors with original brass fittings, parquet flooring, cast iron radiators, a panelled staircase in a style circa 1700, servants’ bells and some magnificent marble fireplaces. In recent years, the kitchen and bathrooms have been updated with high specification fittings and the entire property has been beautifully refurbished from head to toe, both inside and out.

The kitchen/breakfast room has a fitted dining area and underfloor heating. It includes a handmade kitchen with an island unit, granite worktops, a Butler sink, an oil-fired five-door Aga and a separate induction hob. Adjacent to the kitchen is an assortment of domestic offices; there is a utility room with the original laundry sink, a boot room, a pantry and a traditional cold room with stone countertops and quarry floor tiles. The four principal reception rooms all have elegant proportions and fireplaces, and face either south or west with garden views. A garden room with a brick-laid floor in herringbone style has French doors opening directly south on to the terrace. There are three palatial bedrooms on the first floor including the principal bedroom suite with bathroom and bespoke dressing room, along with a house bathroom, separate wc and a range of fitted cupboards along the generous landing. Another four bedrooms and a bathroom are arranged over the second floor, with plentiful eaves storage.

Gardens And Grounds - Electric wrought-iron gates within two stout brick pillars and a boundary wall open to the long tree-lined drive that sweeps around to the main entrance of the house, passing the equestrian centre and cottages. There is a secondary/service drive from the village, also with electric gates. The whole is ring-fenced and enclosed with a surrounding wall and shielded by a shelter belt of scots pines.

The formal landscaped gardens lie on the south and west of the house with York stone terraces, herbaceous borders, avenues of ornamental trees, clipped hedges, walkways, extensive lawns, and a wildlife pond with summer house. There is a well-stocked kitchen garden with raised beds and a greenhouse as well as a hen house and coop. Paddocks enclosed by post and rail fencing and a band of woodland surround the property.

Two separate drives offer the potential to divide the property into two separate lots
