The Elizabethan Manor House was originally built in the 16th century. It was converted into six individual dwellings in 1977. Middle Manor is a beautiful five bedroom house within this historic building. The front door for this property was the grand entrance to the original house. On entering you are welcomed into what would have been the main entrance hall which is now used as a characterful living room with a beautiful stone fireplace and an oil burner in situ.
This room leads on to a convenient utility / boot room with access to the garden and downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen for this property is the hub of the home, it is a fantastic space housing the kitchen, dining room and a spacious family room. The kitchen itself is of a shaker style, with base and eye level units and some integrated appliances. The family room is full of character and has a beautiful fireplace in a stone cast surround. A cellar completes the downstairs accommodation.
As you make your way to the first floor, a turning point on the staircase provides a delightful study area with a large window looking over the well-manicured gardens. The master bedroom is generous in size and benefits from an en-suite shower room. Bedroom 2 is currently used as a study / second living room. This room is full of character with original wood panelling, a stone fireplace and even an old servants bell. To complete the first floor there is an additional double bedroom and a family bathroom with separate shower and bath.
To the second floor there are two further double bedrooms and a shower room. From this level, wonderful views over the countryside can be enjoyed.
This delightful family home is steeped in character at every turn, to include just some there are, original stone fireplaces, wooden panelling and mullion windows with leaded lights.
Grounds and gardens
This delightful family home is set within outstanding and picturesque communal grounds in all approximately 6.5 acres, shared by the six properties within this historical building. The property is approached via a beautiful gravelled driveway with a turning circle. Each property has its own designated parking area with an area saved for guests or a second vehicle. Middle Manor benefits from a detached garage which is accessed via a separate driveway owned by the building.
These stunning gardens surround the building. All residents respect the privacy of their neighbours and there is an agreed private area outside each of the individual dwellings. As you make your way through the gardens, it reveals different areas within the grounds. There is a well manicured formal garden, a full size tennis court, a vegetable garden divided into separate plots, a beautiful woodland area and a natural pond area with access to a footpath leading to the common.
Within the grounds is a stable block which the current residents have put in planning permission to convert into a detached house, which would be independent of the Manor House. In addition to this there is a service building housing the oil tanks for each individual property and a shared storage shed.
