Description
The Manor is a substantial, classically elegant Georgian country house that has been refurbished to the very highest standard. The period features include large, restored sash bay windows, period fireplaces and décor in keeping with the period, but up to modern expectations.
The house stands in an idyllic elevated position, commanding far reaching views across farmland forming part of the estate and much further beyond. There are three impressive reception rooms with a sizeable central hall; with interesting character features including the bespoke butlers cupboard and fitted panelled coat cupboards. There is a sizeable boot & utility room, with fitted granite work surfaces, Belfast sink and units.
The kitchen also benefits from excellent lighting from the large traditional sash window. The room has been finished with the highest quality. The bespoke kitchen consists of granite worksurfaces, with a double Belfast sink and integrated appliances. There is a full traditional Aga with additional matching Aga convection hob attached. The kitchen has a side staircase that also leads to the first floor, which is currently being used as gymnasium/exercise room. The snug, adjacent to the kitchen, consists of matching stone tiled flooring, with window views to the courtyard, and timber beamed ceiling & chandelier.
The main front door leads into an impressive hallway with the original flagstone flooring. Leading on the right into the dining room, which also benefits from large sash bay windows allowing much light into the room, with polished wooden flooring reportedly imported at the time of construction from the Palace of Versailles. The working fireplace uniquely features a second window within the chimney breast above the hearth. This is a unique character feature to the property, and also features a large, impressive central chandelier. There are traditional wooden window shutters within.
The morning/sitting room is tastefully decorated for the period of the property and is a light room with bespoke radiator covers.

The first floor is approached from a grand staircase, leading to a large central hallway with a period feature stain-glass roof light. The Master bedroom is a spacious, light room with classic Georgian tall sash window with spectacular views to the east across the countryside. The Master bedroom benefits from a large, bespoke ensuite with high quality fittings which is entered via the walk-through dressing room with fitted storage cupboards, and a separate walk-in-wardrobe immediately on the right.
There are a further four double bedrooms of generous size and good character. The large family bathroom is also bespoke and features a state of the art spa bathtub, and has high quality fittings.

Outside
The Manor is positioned within well landscaped grounds, including mature formal gardens & lawns, and amenity woodland. Adjacent to the house, is a traditional brick-built, detached heated indoor swimming pool, with showering and changing facilities, drinks bar area, and ready converted upstairs for office use/potential for ancillary accommodation. Across the courtyard, is a large converted traditional brick building currently in office use, including kitchen area and further converted space upstairs. There is a further abundance of useful outbuildings at this property, including a steel portal farm/brick building formerly used as a helicopter hanger & workshop; further traditional brick agricultural buildings in good order, with full planning permission granted for conversion into 4 new residential dwellings.

Equestrian Use & Potential
The property has a huge amount of potential for equestrian use. With the existing buildings in place, of quality, sound brick construction with good floors; existing large agricultural buildings and standing timber stable, the possibilities are endless.
The existing stable block has been recently updated, with 12 loose boxes looking over an all-weather turnout area. Adjacent to this is a further large steel portal frame building, which has the potential to form super internal stabling. The traditional brick outbuildings have previously been used for stud stabling and have many original features. There is a sizeable amount of hard standing between the buildings, with potential for horse walkers, lorry parking and turning, amongst many other things. Planning permission could be easily sought by the prospective purchaser to install a manége at the specifications required, and can be discussed with the Agent.
The outriding at the property is excellent, with a good range of country lanes and bridle path routes nearby. The land is naturally light and well drained, meaning that cross country schooling, hacking and riding around the estate would be superb, with a good number of mature well established hedgerows and natural fences alike. The farm is currently kept partly in-hand and also in part under an arable rotation, currently let out on a Farm Business Tenancy; which may be continued or brought back in hand if so desired.
The outbuildings and agricultural buildings have been well maintained, and where necessary reroofed, and restored to a high standard.
