Tenure: Freehold

A most impressive small estate on elevated grounds of 15.88 acres in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with superb countryside views and development potential


Twinley Manor is situated just outside the small hamlet of Cole Henley in the north Wessex Downs, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty renowned for Watership Down and the inspiration for local author Richard Adams' popular book of the same name. There are a number of lovely walks and riding in the vicinity plus great opportunities for other rural pursuits, such as fishing on the River Test.

Whitchurch, which is situated on the River Test itself, has a range of shopping facilities including supermarket, post office, public houses, church, junior school and well regarded secondary school. More comprehensive facilities can be found in neighbouring Andover, Newbury, Basingstoke and Winchester, which are approximately 10, 12, 14 and 15.5 miles distant respectively. Whitchurch also has a main line railway station with trains running direct to London Waterloo. Road communications are excellent via the A34 providing access to both the north and south and the A303, which joins the M3 motorway at junction 8.

In addition to the schooling in nearby Whitchurch, there are a number of private schools in the area. These include, Cheam, Farleigh, Twyford, Horris Hill, St Swithun's School for Girls, Winchester College, Pilgrims, Princes' Mead, Down House and Marlborough College.


Approached over a long driveway through land belonging to Twinley Manor, the driveway leads to the front and side of the property, terminating beside the open bay barn, garaging and the large timber framed barn.

Twinley Manor is a substantial Victorian detached house offering well proportioned family accommodation over 2 floors and offered in good decorative order, albeit in need of some updating and modernisation. The attractive double entrance doors with elegant fanlight over, open into the reception hall, this in turn leads through to a large and welcoming dining hall with a staircase to the first floor and doors to the principal reception rooms and impressive conservatory. The drawing room is approached through double doors, there is a separate sitting room, study and ground floor cloakroom. The large kitchen/breakfast room leads on to a utility room and boot room.

On the first floor a spacious landing provides access to the master bedroom suite with adjoining bathroom. There are 5 further bedrooms, a family bathroom, shower room and also separate playroom on the first floor with an access and secondary staircase leading down to the boot room.

THE COTTAGE situated behind the house, is a very good size with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen/breakfast room and separate sitting room. Adjoining the cottage is an excellent workshop. This could easily be incorporated into the cottage if required, subject to necessary consents.

The property's setting is exceptional, in an elevated position sitting within its own grounds of approximately 15.88 acres. There are large areas of formal gardens, beautiful paddocks and a wealth of stunning specimen and indigenous trees, protected boundaries and some fine views over neighbouring countryside.

The property benefits from a separate farm track which runs up the western boundary and continues to the north of Twinley Manor.

In addition to the accommodation in the main property there is a very large and beautiful timber frame barn (74'1 x 28'7), an open 4-bay barn, triple garage (1 double, 1 single) and 2 stables. To the rear of the barn is a very large former chicken shed (130' x 43'), this could potentially be converted (subject to the necessary planning and Building Regulations) for equestrian purposes, or indeed, conversion for recreational/residential usage.

Acreage: 15.88 Acres
