Description

Holt Manor is a significant Grade II listed manor house which dates back to the 17th century with later additions in the 18th and 19th centuries. The house sits in an extremely private and peaceful setting on the edge of the village of Holt.

The house is approached over a gravelled carriage drive through impressive entrance gates to a turning circle which reveals a stunning picture of a very pretty house. The driveway continues to a courtyard to the side of the house which is surrounded by outbuildings.

The house is constructed of traditional stone with a Welsh slate roof. The house has been modernised beautifully and has retained all of its charm and character, including original sash windows and high ceilings.

The accommodation at Holt Manor flows very neatly, the impressive hallway is at the heart of the house with a fine cantilevered staircase which leads to the galleried landing. The principal drawing room has five French doors which lead out to a beautiful formal garden with charming views of the parkland beyond. The dining room leads from the opposite side of the hallway, and gives access to the library and study. Near to the family sitting room and playroom the kitchen is perfect for family life and is fully equipped with integrated appliances. From the kitchen there are excellent views of the walled garden. Domestically the large boot room and utility room are beyond the kitchen and a vital part of family life.

Gardens and Grounds
The gardens at Holt Manor have been designed and maintained beautifully over the years. The gardens are separated from the parkland on the eastern boundary by a stone ha-ha. The main terrace, which leads from the drawing room, overlooks the Italianate garden and parkland beyond. Neat gravel paths intersect the immaculate lawns. The terrace leads through to an arboretum which provides a peaceful woodland walk surrounded by a number of mature deciduous trees.

The walled garden to the rear of the house is a perfect hideaway, with intricate planting, a neat vegetable garden and an automatic watering system. Beyond the walled garden is an orchard with a number of mature fruit trees and the hard tennis court.
