More Details

Manor Farm is a sympathetic conversion of a traditional nineteenth century barn. Agricultural fittings have been restored and upcycled to reveal the authentic character of this fine original building. Not only does this include the restoration of the ceiling beams, roof trusses and steels but also the light fittings, staircase treads, mellow floorboards, rustic doors and door furniture, textured oak wall boarding and stone fireplace. Both oak-framed porches were added in 2024. Much of the interior of this house feels like a newbuild and the emphasis is clearly on comfort and luxury with underfloor heating, column radiators, a bespoke staircase with glazed balustrade, high specification fixtures and fittings throughout, and superfast broadband cabled to the property.

The main entrance opens to a central hall with cloaks cupboard and a full-height window and glazed door connecting to the walled garden opposite. An everyday door opens onto a customised boot room with a cloakroom alongside. Beyond lies the fabulous L-shaped kitchen/dining/sitting room with French doors opening onto the breakfast courtyard. This magnificent family room is characterised by vaulted ceilings, mellow beams, the original steels, barn windows and exposed brickwork. The bespoke fitted kitchen is nearly new and includes a large island unit with rounded corners, an induction hob and a family-sized breakfast bar with a resin worksurface. The kitchen also has a double Belfast sink above which sits an east facing window offering a fine outlook over the dog run and paddocks beyond; there are Fisher & Paykel integrated appliances, a boiling water tap and filtered water system, and quartz worksurfaces. Alongside is a well-equipped utility room. Double doors also open west to the party room, a tremendous 29 ft space with a part-timber, part-glazed roof draped in a mature wisteria, banquette seating, a large custom-made bar, pizza oven and built in barbeque, and doors to the walled south facing garden. The 24 ft dining room is open to the kitchen; it has three full-sized arched windows and an impressive stone fireplace housing an electric stove. At the far western end of the house is the beautifully proportioned drawing room with bifold doors opening onto the west facing terrace.

On the first floor the staircase rises to a family room on the landing, ideal as an informal sitting room and/or study. The bedrooms are all large doubles with ceilings that rise into the vaulted roof space. The principal bedroom suite has a dressing room and bathroom, two skylights and a full height window giving far-reached views west. The two further double bedrooms are served by a large house bathroom with a freestanding bath tub and shower unit.

The accommodation is very adaptable and includes a ground floor bathroom.


Known as ‘The Smithy’, this single storey cottage is entirely self-contained with its own front entrance on the main drive and its own parking accessed by electric gates. The cottage is ideal for extended family or for use as a holiday let. The cottage comes with a walled garden and patio area linked to the main house via a secure gate; there are also sliding doors to a west facing area of lawn. All three bedrooms face west and bedroom 3 is currently used as a dressing room. The cottage has luxurious fixtures and fittings throughout, and its independent heating system is fuelled by the ground source heat pump.


The property is accessed via a quiet, single track country lane, and is set back discreetly from any passing traffic. A private drive, flanked by laurel trees and broad grass verges, sweeps past the cottage and outbuildings to the detached double garage in front of the house. The land sits largely behind the house and is divided into paddocks enclosed and divided by post and rail fencing. The old fold yard has been beautifully landscaped to create a private, sheltered walled garden that enjoys a south facing orientation and is connected to the party room. On the west of the house and accessed via bifold doors is a west facing paved terrace with a brick-built rill holding a contemporary water feature.


The detached garage has electric roller shutter doors, power and light. Alongside is a fully-equipped and insulated office. There is planning permission for an additional double garage.

Four substantial steel-framed, multi-purpose outbuildings, all with light and power, face a large area of hardstanding. A concealed builders’ yard sits at the rear. One of the larger sheds has a mezzanine and workshop area, one is concrete and insulated panel. All steel sheds are secure with lockable doors and large electric roller shutter doors. The outbuilding farthest from the house is a livestock shed with a farmgate alongside giving access to the land. This would be ideal for equestrian interests.
