Dating back to the 18th Century with later additions, The Manor House is Grade II listed and built of stone under a slate roof. Situated in the heart of Shipston-on-Stour, it offers well proportioned and flexible family accommodation over three floors. The Manor House was converted into two dwellings in 1951 with the Manor House forming the principle part of the building.
The building has retained many of its original features, whilst having been modernized internally by the current owners to provide beautifully styled, spacious accommodation, producing a combination of charming period features including beamed ceilings, cornicing, sash windows and window seats, with contemporary living.
The front door opens to an inner porch and generous entrance hall with wooden flooring giving access to the study and dining room at the front of the house. There is planning permission and listed building consent in place to extend the current kitchen to create a larger kitchen/ breakfast room with lantern roof and utility room, planning reference 06/03010/FUL / 06/03011/LBC. The drawing room with a working fireplace and marble surround has French doors and full length shutters leading out to the garden, and a cloakroom completes the flow of the ground floor.
On the first floor is a spacious landing with two double bedrooms at the front of the house, both with wooden floors and window seats, a family bathroom with roll top bath, limestone floor and under floor heating, and separate WC. The principle bedroom is at the rear of the house with an abundance of light overlooking the garden, and benefits from built in storage and an en-suite Matki shower room with travertine floor and under floor heating.
There are three further double bedrooms on the second floor, a shower room and a large studio room which offers flexible additional living space. From the studio a balcony looks out across the garden, over the rooftops and onto undulating farmland.
The facade of the house is clad with wisteria and enclosed by iron railings. To the rear of the property is a walled garden providing privacy and a paved terrace which runs along the length of the house and which can be accessed from the utility room and drawing room providing ideal entertaining space. The walled garden is predominantly laid to lawn, with established borders and a variety of trees. Of particular note is a Mulberry tree which is believed to be over 400 years old. Behind the rear wall is a double garage and additional off street parking which are approached from Telegraph Street, as well as a bothy which provides useful outdoor storage.
