MANOR COTTAGE is a most attractive detached Grade II Listed period home of distinctive style and character situated in this truly stunning location placed on the edge of Strethall surrounded by open countryside, over which the property enjoys commanding panoramic views. The property, which has not been on the open market for over 100 years, contains all the features one would associate with a property of this age with exposed beams and timbers, vaulted ceilings, exposed brickwork and attractive fireplaces. The front door opens into an entrance lobby, where a glazed door opens into a music room which could serve a variety of purposes with windows on three sides, tiled flooring and exposed beams and timbers. From here, a doorway leads into the main sitting room which is another lovely room with dual aspect windows drawing in natural light, exposed beams and timbers and large inglenook fireplace with open hearth. An inner hallway has stairs rising to the first floor and in turn leads to the dining room which again looks out to the front and rear with a glazed door opening to outside and attractive brick fireplace with alcove display cabinet with internal light to one side. A second staircase rises to the first floor. The kitchen provides a range of storage cupboards with granite work surfaces and space for appliances with windows looking out over the rear garden to the open countryside beyond. A?rear lobby has a door which leads to outside, storage cupboard housing the boiler, tumble-dryer and washing machine. There is a ground floor shower room just off to one side which contains a 3-piece suite.

Upstairs, are four bedrooms accessed by two staircases. Landing areas give access to each room independently and to a bathroom which contains a 3-piece suite.

OUTSIDE, the grounds really are a most impressive feature of the property extending to about 1.25 acres in total. The gardens are laid predominantly to lawn and feature a wide variety of flowerbeds and borders stocked with numerous plants and shrubs and with many mature trees around. There is a large pond which sits behind the house, patio areas ideal for external entertaining, a hard tennis court, enclosed vegetable area, various storage sheds and a delightful revolving Victorian summerhouse. The gardens, particularly to the rear of the property, adjoin open countryside and have the most spectacular panoramic views which really do stretch for miles on a clear day, along with the pretty local Parish Church in the distance.
