A fine and substantial period house of striking brick and slate construction with a prominent central gable giving the house an imposing façade offering a wonderful home which has been fully restored and modernised over recent years to create a stunning country property with a contemporary interior design theme; the internal layout is in our opinion perfectly suited to present day lifestyle requirements and internal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate all that this wonderful home has to offer.
The restoration of Manor Farm has been completed to a high standard in our opinion, with the kitchen day room being arguably the signature feature of the house, and the property affords remarkably flexible and versatile accommodation arranged over three floor levels (having a total of seven bedrooms and five bathrooms or shower rooms) with the upper second floor level providing a self-contained two bedroom suite ideal as an au pairs’ flat or alternatively as a dedicated space for independently minded teenagers.
