Tenure: Freehold

Superb example of a Grade II* listed Tudor manor house with excellent secondary accommodation set within wonderful gardens and grounds of about 7.8 acres.

Elizabethan historians have said the first owner bore the name Wheystrode, and that he was a Knight to whom the unscrupulous King John gave the Manor for services rendered in 1208. Wheystrode and his descendants were Lords of the Fee, and held the Manor until 1460 when it was passed to John Style, and remained in the family for 300 years. Waystrode Manor is an exceptional Grade II* listed Tudor house which has been the subject of complete refurbishment and extending by the present owners. The house now provides well proportioned accommodation with a wealth of character features together with a subtle mix of modern styling.

Features include exposed wall and ceiling timbers, oak floor boards, lattice and lead light windows, inglenook fireplaces, high ceilings, modern bathroom suites, a bespoke kitchen/breakfast room and under floor heating to the ground floor. The property is located in a rural location with uninterrupted views over the adjoining countryside. In addition to the manor house is the comprehensive secondary accommodation which could be utilized for annexe accommodation, home office and entertaining areas. They comprise a large detached cottage with a spacious first floor flat and storage and garaging on the ground floor. An oast house provides a kitchen, recreation room and first floor room. A coach house has a number of storage rooms and garaging. The Grade II listed timber frame barn has an impressive double height vaulted interior.

The property is located within a rural location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Metropolitan Greenbelt with far reaching views over the adjoining countryside on the edge of Cowden village, with its public house, church, village hall and primary school.
