Dating back to the 17th Century, and once residence to the artist William Logsdail between 1922 - 1944, this imposing village Manor House is a truly exquisite rarity, situated in a picturesque location affording far reaching views over the countryside, both to the Northeast and the South West. Original features abound throughout the property, built over three floors, including ornate fireplaces, sash windows and wood panelling, creating that rare ambience and elegant grandeur one would expect of such a house. The interior of the main house borrows from its surrounding landscape, and has been designed to integrate with its immediate, rural environment, taking in the views across open countryside beyond.
The property is accessed via a spacious gravel driveway and leads to ample parking for several cars, outbuildings, a large barn and separate two bedroom cottage, which is currently used for holiday lets by the owners. The garden and grounds, in all, extend to approximately 2.68 acres and comprise a walled garden with swimming pool, lawns and paddock interspersed with mature trees and shrubs. There are also several period outbuildings (which could be converted, subject to planning). The gardens are encompassed by a mature treescape, which offer both seclusion and privacy and to the rear of the grounds, are spectacular views over the far-reaching countryside.
Within the main house on the ground floor, the principal reception rooms include the dining room, entrance hall with stone inglenook fireplace and formal drawing room with wonderful high ceilings and access to the conservatory. There is a good-sized kitchen breakfast room offering a range of fitted units, tack room, laundry and scullery with original flag stone floor, indicative of a house of this period. To the first floor there are four bedrooms which include a spacious master suite with attached dressing room with a range of wardrobes and ensuite shower/bathroom and a further family bathroom. Also on this floor is the studio room, where resident artist William Logsdail painted from, usually found to be sitting at the balcony edge overlooking the walled garden. Three further bedrooms, a bathroom and an attic room can be found on the second floor.
