THE PROPERTY

The Manor House at North Curry would be viewed by many to be one of the most important houses of the village, built in 1815 and is listed Grade II. Constructed upon the footings of an even older house, now providing vaulted cellarage, the property was built as the parsonage and remained connected to the church until 1938 when it passed into private ownership and was renamed The Manor House. The original staff wing was built in 1875 and is now in separate ownership. Of classical design the house has been beautifully restored over the years and was the subject of a book written and illustrated by the current owner, "A Year Around Our House" which has featured in magazines including Country Living. It offers high ceilinged generously proportioned reception rooms, the drawing room being quite magnificent, beautifully light having an exquisite mantelpiece and enjoys a triple aspect over glorious views. There is also a spacious family sitting room which could be furnished as a formal dining room next to the attractively fitted kitchen / breakfast room with well-arranged cupboards, central island and window enjoying the glorious open outlooks to the north across the Somerset Levels. An elegant turning stone staircase with arched window leads to the first floor landing with exceptional views. Panelled doors lead to a series of well-proportioned bedrooms, the principal bedroom having an en-suite bathroom. There are Four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
