Ground Floor

A newly created porch at the rear of the home, has become the principal way of entering and offers a warm welcome onto the kitchen. Upon entering the kitchen, you are greeted with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and double patio doors that open onto the rear terrace and garden. This space is well equipped with a range of floor and wall mounted shaker-style units, a double butler sink, oak work surfaces and space for a gas range oven. To the right of the patio doors the original pantry can be found, providing further character and additional storage.

The kitchen also benefits from integrated appliances such as a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer. In years gone by, this kitchen used to be a hayloft. Careful attention has gone into glazing the hayloft door which now overlooks the kitchen from the second landing on the first floor. Stairs rising from the kitchen provide additional access to this first-floor landing.

Just off the kitchen is one of two large entrance hallways. Here, the hallway has a quarry tile floor and is home to one of two original traditional farmhouse front doors. To the right of the hallway there is a well-equipped utility room and downstairs W/C. The utility room offers further floor and wall-mounted shaker-style units and excellent storage for shoes and boots. Also accessed from the hallway is a large dining room that can comfortably seat 10 and incorporates many eye-catching features such as exposed stonework, character beams, cupboard, quarry tile floor, a feature log burner inset into an original large inglenook fireplace, shutters and affords views over the newly created rose garden to the front of the house.

Leading on from the dining room, are a storage cupboard, two further reception rooms, plus access to the cellar and principal staircase to the first floor. At this point the floor changes from quarry tiles to a flagstone floor that creates a sense of history and heritage to this charming home and continues through the second entrance hall.

There is a spacious second reception room ideally suited to a music room, study, or snug which benefits from views through a sash window over the rear garden and sun terrace. This room benefits from a storage cupboard, and features original working shutters, an exposed beam and exposed wooden floorboards. An original fireplace is situated here. Although it has not yet been uncovered, it could very easily be exposed and used if desired.

The second entrance hallway provides dual-access to the front and rear gardens, as well as the formal sitting room, cellar, and staircase rising to the first floor. The formal sitting room is a beautiful space with oak flooring, and dual aspect views over the front and rear gardens. The newly fitted windows benefit from the original working shutters. The sitting room has an inset log burning stove with oak mantlepiece. There are further exposed oak beams and a bespoke bookcase set into the recess.

First Floor

Manor Farm has five double bedrooms in the main house, all of which benefit from views of the rose garden to the front. The first bedroom is spacious and features a cast iron fireplace, built-in wardrobes, and a brand-new en-suite shower room with modern fittings. This master bedroom is dual aspect offering views over both front and rear gardens. Bedroom five is a well-proportioned bedroom situated next to the master bedroom with a storage cupboard and also offers views to fields in the distance (It is currently used as a dressing room).

The second bedroom has an exposed cast-iron fireplace, storage cupboard and it too has views of the countryside beyond. It is accessed from the sweeping, light and airy landing that offers beautiful views of the rear garden. Continue through a feature tunnel at the end of the landing to find the large family bathroom which has a free-standing roll-top bath, a large shower, panelled walls, and modern sanitaryware.

Here you will find a second landing, and a second staircase leading from the kitchen. The third and fourth bedrooms (also doubles) are situated off the second landing, as is a shower room with fitted shaker-style vanity units and modern tiling. While both bedrooms three and four also offer views of the side garden, bedroom three features an exposed beam adding additional character.

Annexe, Gardens and Grounds

The owners have renovated and refurbished a delightful outbuilding at Manor Farm. Accessed via the courtyard next to the kitchen, the annexe has its own front door and patio, and is currently used as a dual-purpose home office and additional guest bedroom accommodation. It is a peaceful, stunning space with vaulted ceilings and an abundance of character. The annexe has been fitted with an ensuite shower room with modern sanitaryware. If desired, there is capacity to add a small kitchenette.

There are three separate enclosed gardens at Manor Farm. The front garden is enclosed by a stone wall and is laid to lawn with beautiful rose beds that have been designed to complement the symmetry of the front of the property. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn. There is a newly created sun terrace with direct access from the kitchen and second entrance hall, making it an excellent entertaining space.

There is also a large garden shed with electricity and plenty of trees and shrubs bordering the property ensuring maximum privacy. The current owners have also thoughtfully placed a wrought iron bench around a Rowan tree in the garden which enjoys the sun throughout the day.

The side garden is slightly elevated from the main house and is accessible from either the rear garden or driveway at front of the house. All gardens offer complete security ideal for dogs. Manor Farm owns the private driveway leading to the property from entrances on both Manor Close and Harrold Road and has parking for more than ten vehicles.
