THE PROPERTY

A HANDSOME AND BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED NINE/ TEN BEDROOM PERIOD RESIDENCE SET IN STUNNING GROUNDS IN THE HEART OF CHARLWOOD VILLAGE The Manor House is a handsome and substantial nine/ten bedroom Grade II* listed residence set in an idyllic location in the heart of Charlwood Village, dating we understand from around 1460. The property has been respectfully and stylishly renovated to an exceptionally high standard by the current owners, creating a charming and immaculately presented family home set in grounds extending to some 3.47 acres and incorporating excellent leisure facilities. This location is ideal for families wishing to benefit from nearby countryside walks, local pubs and excellent transport links by road and air, together with well-regarded schools in the private and state sector. The property is approached via a gated, tree lined driveway and is set in secluded grounds offering an ideal balance of a semi-rural location as well as village amenities in walking distance. Originally forming part of the larger estate of Manor House Farm, the property enjoys a colourful and glamorous past, having previously been home to the actress Dame Gladys Cooper and motorcycle racer, Barry Sheene. The oldest parts of the property date back to Medieval times with later additions in the Tudor, early and late Victorian periods. The versatile layout of the property with a large kitchen at the heart of the main part of the house as well as second kitchen in the "cottage", lends itself well to the creation of separate areas with own entrance, such as for staff, visiting family or friends. The Manor House boasts some 6,706sq ft of accommodation arranged over two floors and accessed via four staircases. Numerous striking period features can be found throughout the property in the exposed internal and external beams as well as impressive Inglenook fireplace in the family room. Views over the wraparound gardens draw the visitor's eye and are further enhanced by thoughtfully designed seating areas within the house. In the main house are three further reception rooms, two studies and a shower room, providing a superb flexibility to balance home working and family life. The luxurious and sumptuously proportioned principal suite has stunning vaulted ceilings, a centrally placed raised bathtub and dressing room/ adjoining additional bedroom. Two shower rooms and a family bathroom serve the five other bedrooms with an ensuite bathroom and three bedrooms in the cottage. Modern technology has been subtly incorporated to blend perfectly with the character of the property to include CAT 5 wiring, Nest central heating and a RAKO intelligent lighting system. However the new owners choose to utilise the rooms of The Manor House, the ambience is undoubtedly welcoming and befitting of the superb setting.
