This fantastic property sits on approximately 12,000m2 of mature gardens and orchard, the main house has two large reception rooms a big farm house kitchen and 5 bedrooms.

There are also almost 800m2 of assorted barns, cottages and outbuildings, part of one of which has been converted into 80m2 of modern office space.

Built in 1735, for the local Baron, this Manor house had remained in the same family until the 1970’s. At one time it was the centre piece of a 50 hectare farm.
The majority of this land has now passed into the hands of surrounding farms but the farm buildings remain and provide the opportunity to create a gite complex if required.

As you enter the grounds of this property through the main gates you are struck by the imposing Manor at the far end of the courtyard.
Through the front door and you cannot help but notice the wonderful flag stone paved flooring in the hallway. To the left of the hallway is the first reception room (40m2) with open fireplace, oak panelled walls and double doors leading onto the gardens. Through a short passage way is the big Farmhouse kitchen (28m2) which is more than capable of being a dining room as well.
There is also a cloak room and WC along this passageway.
To the right of the main hallway is the second reception room (32m2) with another open fireplace and doors to the garden.
Under the second reception room there is a wine cellar (16m2)

Upstairs you will find 5 bedrooms (14m2, 16m2, 19m2, 22m2 and the master room 25m2 with a 9m2 walk in dressing room). There are also two bathrooms upstairs.
The loft space is 125m2 and with enough head room to be virtually totally developed if wanted.

The outbuildings (800m2) have been put to various uses over the years; part of one of the barns is currently a modern office space. There is also a cottage in need of restoration.
This could be a fantastic family home as it is or transformed into a complex with extensive potential.
