Manor Farm is a beautiful period Grade II Listed property which dates back to 1678. The property is constructed of Cotswold Stone and features stone mullioned windows, many with leaded lights, under a tiled stone slate roof. The house has been impressively updated by the current owners who have created a good combination of a contemporary and traditional finish. Accommodation is set over three levels within the house and there is ancillary space within the converted former stable building. The ground floor provides a spacious reception hall with flagstone flooring and fireplace with wood burning stove. Situated adjacent is an elegant sitting room with exposed beams and attractive Cotswold Stone fireplace. The substantial drawing room has an inglenook fireplace and further separate seating area. This leads through to the large conservatory which enjoys picturesque views into the courtyard area and gardens. The kitchen and breakfast room has elegant wall and floor mounted furniture and a four oven Aga. There is exposed beam work and a vaulted ceiling throughout with picture window and access to the garden. A good sized utility room and wine store is situated alongside. There are four good sized bedrooms with delightful views set over two floors serviced by a large bathroom and large shower room. The former stable building provides flexible ancillary accommodation which is currently used as a guest bedroom suite with wet room. The stunning and sizeable gardens & grounds provide about 2.3 acres of land. Formal gardens immediately surround the house itself with beautiful lawns and well stocked borders. The large natural wildlife pond provides a dramatic feature and is surrounded by mature trees including weeping willow. A foot bridge leads from the formal gardens into a more informal garden with mown paths, longer grass areas and a summerhouse. Beyond is a good sized paddock with post and rail divide from the informal garden. This gently sloping paddock provides far reaching views over the village and surrounding countryside. Stanton is described by Pevsner as ''architecturally the most distinguished of the smaller villages in the North Cotswolds'. Broadway about 4 miles drive, offers a good range of shops and services, whilst Evesham, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham are the main centres for the region. The latter is generally considered as having some of the best shopping outside London. There is a main line rail service to London Paddington from either Evesham or Moreton-in-Marsh and access to the M5 Junction 9 (Tewkesbury) is about 11 miles away. Stanton has a village inn, church, cricket club and livery stables and is a designated Conservation Area. Above the village there are delightful walks and rides along the Cotswold escarpment.
