Owners Comments

“Manor Cottage has been an amazing family home for the last 15 years. It's a beautiful character property located in a peaceful and friendly village.”

“The house itself has a charming cosy cottage feel about it, yet it's very light and airy due to double aspect windows in most rooms.”


Dating from 1693, we understand the property was originally three cottages for farm workers of nearby Manor Farm. It retains three separate staircases and offers flexible accommodation with 3 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms. Displaying immense character it boasts a wealth of exposed ceiling beams and wall timbers throughout and is the ideal property for purchasers seeking a period home with a real sense of history. Log burners enhance the cosiness of the two main reception rooms whilst a large wooden sun deck has a hot tub and enjoys pleasant views over the private Westerly facing rear garden that has a leafy outlook. Boasting off road parking the driveway leads to the barn style open double garage and a small home office with Wi-Fi and power is situated in in the top right hand corner of the garden.


A traditional porch with a wooden entrance door leads to the hallway that features an open aspect to the dining room. The lounge is a beautiful room and sets the tone for the rest of the interior with exposed ceiling beams, wall timbers and oak flooring. To the rear of this room, glazed double doors allow access to the sun deck and a part vaulted ceiling features an area of wattle and daub behind a glass panel. The sitting room is approached from the lounge and also has wall and ceiling beams and stripped floorboards with triple aspect windows enjoying a pleasant outlook. The brick fireplace has a log burner and a staircase leading up to the right-hand landing. With an open wood framed aspect to the kitchen, the dining room has a tiled floor and a door leading to the rear lobby with staircase three, a cloakroom, numerous storage cupboards and the utility room that has a door allowing access to the garden. The kitchen boasts a range of handmade units by Romsey cabinet makers and these can be painted in any colour to suit individual tastes. There is a range style cooker, dishwasher, a traditional Butler sink and dual aspect windows. As mentioned, the first floor accommodation is approached via three separate staircases. The central landing leads to the master bedroom which is a fantastic room with a high level ceiling, cast iron fireplace and exposed ceiling beams and wall timbers. Bedrooms 3 also boasts exposed ceiling beams and wall timbers with a low level door leading to the dressing room (a door here opens to the third staircase to the rear lobby) and the impressive spacious bathroom that features a four piece white suite. Bedroom two is approached from its own landing with the stairs rising up from the sitting room. There is a useful linen cupboard and a shower room whilst the bedroom has an impressive high level vaulted ceiling with extensive ceiling beams and wall timbers.


The cottage is located on a level plot and enjoys a good degree of privacy. Externally the driveway allows off road parking and leads to the barn style open double garage. Benefitting from a westerly facing aspect the pleasant rear garden is a particular feature and has a leafy outlook. A large wooden sundeck has a hot tub and the remainder of the garden is laid mainly to lawn with shrubs and trees. A potting shed is located at the rear of the garden and a small home office (with hi-fi Wi-Fi and power) is located at the top right hand corner.
