Fressingfield Manor is a very impressive period house in extensive grounds. It is understood that the property was constructed in 1860 and built on land that was formerly part of the Littleover Hall
estate. The property was significantly remodelled in 1924 and with various subsequent developments it now presents a superbly proportioned and handsome property with versatile accommodation over two main floors. It is considered to have some local importance, from an architectural and historical viewpoint.
The house is constructed of mellow red brick elevations under a pitched tiled roof with the exterior finished off by being hung throughout in fish-scale and rectangular tiles. The house is
approached via a private gated driveway off Blagreaves Lane.
The house accommodation extends to approximately 7,524 sq. ft (699 sq. m) and is beautifully presented throughout following
extensive interior design work in recent years. A heavy timber door leads into an initial entrance hallway with a door leading into a guest cloakroom. A glazed door leads into an impressive
reception hall dominated by a splendid staircase. The principal reception rooms are accessed off the reception hallway, the most impressive of which is the large drawing room providing a spacious area for formal entertainment with a lovely outlook over
the rear gardens. Situated beside the formal drawing room is a well-proportioned dining room with high ceilings and a period fireplace. The receiving room takes you through to the second
large sitting room with period fireplace and sitting room. There is a servants dining room and butler's pantry leading through to the kitchen which has a comprehensive range of base and wall units
incorporating a butler's sink, an Aga and Leisure oven.
The grand staircase leads to the first-floor accommodation which is set around a most attractive galleried landing. There are six
bedrooms, two family bath/shower rooms and an inner hallway leading through to a loft and workshop area with potential for renovating or development, subject to the necessary consents.
Additional stairs lead to the second floor where there are four further bedrooms, a sitting room and bathroom allowing further semi-independent accommodation.
Gardens and grounds
Fressingfield Manor is accessed through a stone pillar gateway leading to a large parking area with timber framed two bay car port. There is a brick under tile outbuilding providing garaging with

gardens at Fressingfield Manor with a range of mature trees, shrubs and perennials bordering the garden. There is a large paved terrace area for al fresco entertainment, a trellis walkway and an expansive lawned area with splendid trees offering privacy and a very mature setting.
