Full property description

This is a magnificent 6-bedroom, Grade II listed Manor House central to the village but still private. One of the oldest houses in Wiltshire steeped in history and retaining many unusual period features.

Flagstone flooring, fabulous original beams, oak panelling, mullion windows and exquisitely carved fireplace can be found at every turn within this property creating a feeling of grandeur whilst also retaining a unique family home. Two perfectly proportioned reception rooms with their high ceilings and open fires, can be found on the ground floor and are all beautifully and naturally lit through the exceptionally large windows.

A generous family style kitchen/dining room overlooks the pretty garden, and a door from the kitchen leads to a large boot/utility room. The jewel in the crown would have to be the remarkable, atmospheric dining hall with its 12th century bread oven and a succession of oak beams, this is the perfect room for family gatherings. A staircase leads down to an extensive cellar which spans the width of the house.
The impressive wide wooden staircase with gentle low treads leads to two further floors, it is thought the staircase itself originated from a Spanish Galleon. The large window on the first-floor landing bathes the whole house in sunlight in the late afternoon giving it a wonderful feeling of tranquillity.
On the first floor the glorious drawing room is home to a breathtaking fireplace which is crafted from stone and with all manner of decorative embellishments. The master bedroom is on this floor with shower room ensuite. Two further double bedrooms both of which are wood panelled, and the family bathroom. The sweeping staircase ascends to a second floor leading to three further bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite w.c.

The pretty south facing garden is totally enclosed with mature hedging and planted with ancient apple trees and pear trees which produce wonderful tasting fruits, the magnificent copper beech at the end of the garden completes the air of calm. An ornamental iron gate leads to a courtyard where the old stables have been converted into a cottage with a double bedroom, bathroom and open plan kitchen/reception room with a log burning stove. This is the perfect annexe for guests, staff or to generate income as a B&B. There is a double garage on the far side of the courtyard.

The fashionable town of Bruton is fifteen minutes away and is home to the renowned Art Gallery Hauser and Wirth a selection of notable eateries and 3 star restaurants. The area is renowned for its excellent schools which include primary and secondary state schools in Bruton and Frome. The two prep schools of All Hallows and Hazelgrove are nearby and for secondary Sherborne, Kings Bruton, Bruton School for Girls, Millfield and Downside are all within easy reach. Bath, Frome, Westbury, Warminster, Gillingham and Castle Cary stations provide services to London Paddington and London Waterloo. The A3030 (M3) links to London and the wider motorway network -the A36, M4 and M5 are all within easy reach. There is a wide range of national and international flights from Bristol Airport.

• Main house: Oil fired central heating, electricity and water
• Annex: Gas fired central heating electricity and water

The house could make an interesting gallery/showroom with ample off street parking in the drive way and further parking in the surrounding area. There are several entrances to the house so it would be quite possible to separate the commercial space from the rest of the home, subject to planning. The house has in its history been a coaching inn, G P surgery, and at one stage the village shop.
