Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Located just outside the historic village of Newington with its 12th Century church (built by Richard de Lucy, appointed Lord Chief Justice of England by Henry 1 in 1154) Oak Manor sits on a raised plot, surrounded by woodland and with a direct southerly view of the church's spire. The prominent house sits in the middle of an extensive plot covering approximately 4.7 acres and is divided into the house's immediate gardens surrounds together with a large paddock to the south of the property and an orchard on the northern border.

The house, approached through a fine pair of gates and up along a paved and lit driveway, is extensive in scope, covering over 11,000 ft2 of living space and provides a flexible and well thought out arrangement of living and entertaining space. Entrance to the house comes through a large entrance hallway which provides access to the various levels of the house. A large formal family drawing room occupies the easterly side of the ground floor whilst a trio of excellent rooms; the formal dining room, the large and welcoming kitchen and a snug south westerly facing family room sit on the western side. A study, large utility room, spare bedroom and additional WC/shower room then complete the living space on the ground floor. A main staircase leads up from the entrance hallway (and is complimented by a second staircase on the westerly end) and give access to the master suite (with dressing room and bathroom) which sits above the formal drawing room whilst five additional bedrooms are found alongside two bathrooms on the rest of the floor. A separate staircase then links the first floor with the top floor where two additional rooms (potential bedrooms) are then found at the far end of an immense loft room/part room which has been used to host weddings/celebrations over the years. A separate kitchen and guest WC/shower room complete the ensemble along with massive additional loft space which, whilst providing easily accessible storage space might also (subject to the appropriate consents) provide additional living space should it be needed. This space is divided into 2 separate loft areas; the ones with potential for conversion sit on the north and south sides of the building, both of which have extensive head space with mezzanine levels in each . Planning permission has existed (now lapsed) to convert the attic space into a self-contained annex with scope to install an internal lift if required.

The final part of the main house is found in the extensive leisure complex with a near 50 foot indoor swimming pool which has sliding doors that open out onto a west facing terrace and fenced garden area; ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. A gym, sauna and two additional shower rooms are also found alongside the pool area. Ample cellaring is then also accessed via the secondary stairwell.

Oak Manor sits in the middle of its grounds and benefits from a lovingly tended garden on the south side with multiple well established trees and flower beds. A large paddock comes alongside a set of outbuildings including three stables and two barns/storage with a graded pathway leading down to the paddock. A pathway leads round up to the upper orchard where there exists space to further develop the property's facilities. A beautiful woodland walkway with feature ponds then leads you back round to the main house on the north easterly corner. The proud driveway runs round the house and gives a 360 degree route around the property to the ample garaging at the rear of the building which is found alongside the property's boiler room, plant room and a garden room/plant nursery.

Owing to our commitment to keep both our colleagues and clients safe during this period of recommended isolation, we also have many self-serve viewing options available to you. These include video walkthroughs, 360 virtual reality viewings and enhanced comprehensive photography.
