4 Bedroom Manor House For Sale
Sowerbys are delighted to bring to the open market 'Elm Manor', a superbly presented, Grade II listed family home, packed with character and offering versatile living accommodation. Dating back to 1663 and sitting on a half an acre plot (STMS), this fine property offers everything from an open-plan kitchen/dining area with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, to a charming sitting room with an inglenook style fireplace, complemented by four double bedrooms, an office, gym room, garage and outdoor hot tub in the south-facing garden. One must view this property to appreciate its exceptional standard.
Entering through electric gates onto the gravel drive, this majestic property stands out for all the right reasons. Whilst there is a door to the front, the main access into the property is through the oak porch and door leading into the kitchen/diner. As you step inside, a great sense of luxury, attention to detail, character and comfort becomes apparent. This room takes centre stage as the hub of this family home. The vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, bespoke fitted shaker-style kitchen with an island and granite worktops, plus the breakfast bar, are all elements that make this room a space to be enjoyed by family and friends alike. Moving to the front of the property, the dual aspect sitting room boasts an original inglenook style fireplace with log burner, original beams and beautiful floorboards, creating a cosy space to retreat to on an evening. Finishing off the ground floor is a good size utility room with further access to a WC.
Moving to the two upper levels, there are the four double bedrooms and the family shower room. To the first floor, both bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes plus access to a separate WC, whilst the principal bedroom also enjoys en-suite facilities. The second floor houses the family shower room and two further bedrooms, one of which with a walk-in wardrobe. The bedrooms, just like the ground floor, are packed with character, boasting exposed beams, oak doors, a feature fireplace in the principal bedroom and vaulted ceilings on the very top floor.
Elm Manor is a property that offers something for everyone. There is a well-appointed gym with power and light, and a single garage next door that benefits from water supply too, plus access to a 22' office above. This space would be ideal if you need to work from home, or if required, it offers the potential to be converted to an annexe, subject to the necessary planning consents. Recently the current owners have purchased an extra piece of land to the rear of the garage, where they have added the perfect outdoor entertaining space. With a double length hot tub, with a front current for those who want to improve their swimming technique, an outside shower, plus an infrared sauna and BBQ area, one can easily appreciate the versatility of this wonderful home. Complementing the outside space are two further seating areas surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and flower beds.
