A beautiful grade II Listed Manor House with ancillary accommodation, fabulous gardens and Arboretum with approximately 8 acres of grounds. Conderton Manor is an impressive country residence dating back to the 17th Century with early and mid-20th Century alterations and additions. Constructed of Cotswold stone beneath a tiled roof, the original building was a traditional H-plan with later extensions, set over two storeys and attic with dormers. Windows on main storeys are mainly replacement eaded cross-casements. The property is entered via a 20th Century ashlar porch which projects from the ground floor of the central three bays to stand just proud of the end walls of the wings. The entrance is surmounted by a broken segmental pediment on moulded corbels which contains an engaged ball finial; it has flanking pilasters, a moulded architrave and a 6-panelled door. The left wing has been extended by one bay above which is another dormer window with a 2-light casement. This extension has an additional two-bay wing projecting from its left side elevation with a single-storey wing adjoining its front elevation. All these additions are of similar scale, detail and materials to the original building. From the entrance you arrive at the dining hall with double doors leading through to the Conservatory, Terrace and Garden beyond. The interior is recorded as having retained some early 19th Century panelling in the study and an oak staircase with spiral balusters. The property would benefit from some modernisation but offers a fabulous family home with 5 reception rooms on the ground floor. Next to the oak staircase are steps leading down to the wine store and cellar. The first and second floors provide 8 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all with generous ceiling heights. The second floor also comprises a Studio and a further 2 Bedroom Apartment with bathroom, kitchen/dining room, sitting room all accessed via an independent staircase.
