The setting and external appearance has been painstakingly preserved to retain the architectural integrity of the manor house and its buildings, from the medieval circular dovecote forming part of Manor Grange, to the Tudor and Jacobean house, with early C20th embellishments in the Arts and Crafts period in the style of Sir Edwin Lutyens. Some of the gardens are known to have been designed by the renowned garden designer Gertrude Jekyll.
Despite its lovely architecture and the many traditional features within the house, Manor Grange also works so well as a private family home. The accommodation is laid out over three floors with the entrance hallway giving access to the principal rooms, The drawing room with its oak floor and large fireplace and south and east facing mullion windows. The dining room also has a large inglenook with cupboards either side.
The kitchen/ breakfast room has an Aga and companion, with kitchen cabinets in keeping with the house, and door to the garden. There is also a utility room and cloakroom on the ground floor.
The living space continues to the first floor where there is a large landing library and a panelled sitting room/ study, but which could also form part of the principal bedroom suite, if desired. The principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and there is a second substantial bedroom with walk in closet and door to Bathroom 2, which is also accessible from the landing.
The second floor has bedroom 3, vaulted bedroom 4 with far reaching views and bedroom 5 together with a further bathroom off the landing.
In front of the property there is parking for two cars whilst there is ample further parking off the drive to the side of the dovecote, and a garage in a range of buildings .
By the house is a private walled courtyard and a private garden opening from the kitchen door, with lawn and traditional borders, shrubs and herbaceous plants.
Across the drive is a more extensive lawned garden, with a lovely spring fed pond, mature trees and shrubs. Here also is the fascinating dovecote, with its hugely thick stone circular walls and dove nesting boxes.
Beyond the garden is a beautiful secluded outbuilding with potential for a variety of uses, with electricity supply and views over the paddock. The paddock in two enclosures is an added element to the property, there is a footpath to the village and mutual rights of way for access with neighbours to have access to the public road.
