About the property

Elegant & historic, this renovated wing of a 16th century Grade II listed Manor House has a wealth of features and large third of an acre plot. Currently run as a very successful holiday home for up to 10 people, it offers spacious family living whether as a full-time home, second home or business venture or perhaps a balance of both. With over 2,500 square feet to utilise The Old Manor offers flexible usage. The outhouse down the garden also has potential to be converted to office use stpp.

The Old Manor House has a wealth of character features but the beautiful large Elizabethan fireplace with an intricate carved section above is perhaps one of the most notable. There is detailed historical documentation about the house denoting when it was bought and sold over past years and when The Old Manor House as a whole was divided. This much loved home has been sympathetically renovated and improved to offer a traditional large family home.

With three large reception rooms and a spacious kitchen diner with separate utility there is plenty of room to entertain work or just simply relax. An additional large tiled double wet room with changing area provides an ideal area for showering off sandy kids fresh from the beach!

Upstairs there are four generous double bedrooms (one en-suite) and a single.room. The main bathroom has a shower & bath. With a front and rear staircase this adds to the interest & history as this would have been for the servants!

The large attractive stone walled rear garden is landscaped and beautifully maintained by the gardener. The L shape of the house forms a natural large patio area with linear pathways up to the wide lawns with mature well-tended beds. Arches and pergolas form structure & interest. There is also an outbuilding at the end of the garden which was used historically as a pottery.

The holiday occupancy of the house for 50% of the year generates an average gross return of £50,000
