Further Information

Description
Manor Farm is one of finest homes in the area, superbly located in a sought after village, a mere 6 miles from Cheltenham, highly accessible to the town and major communication links whilst enjoying a semi-rural feel and village atmosphere. The property is a wonderful blend of period grandeur with a modern day finish and the owners have taken great care to retain the very special original features, whilst making Manor Farm the most comfortable and inviting home through careful restoration.

Set in a slightly elevated position with the backdrop of the village in sight, the main entrance into the property is via a charming reception hall with polished oak boards and fine leaded light windows. This is a wonderfully warm and bright space which is not only used to introduce the reception rooms but also as a dining hall, making it a very grand area in which to entertain. Manor Farm has a fine choice of living rooms, the main drawing room is charming and elegant, with an Inglenook fireplace, beamed ceilings, triple aspect windows and double doors leading to outside. From here is access to a further sitting room, a warm and relaxing space with a stone fireplace, flagstone flooring, leaded light window and doorway through to the original mill store. From the dining hall is the kitchen, which is in keeping with the style of this period home. The kitchen itself offers a range of hand crafted units, a large central island perfect for relaxed entertaining and a range of high quality appliances befitting a country house, and a gas fired Aga inset with an exposed brick surround. A beautiful addition to Manor Farm is a further reception room, opening from the kitchen, which is perfect as a games room or TV room for children, with access opening out to the terrace and gardens. A vaulted ceiling and strong architectural features make it the most stunning room for all seasons.

Manor Farm has a beautiful balance of bedroom accommodation over the two upper floors, which have been designed to have their own en suites.

A further staircase rises to three further bedrooms also with en suite modern bathrooms, there is excellent storage and beautiful views across the gardens and grounds.
