The Manor House, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire
WHAT: Set within just over 0.7 acres, The Manor House is a rare gem; a country house within a town. The 15th-century Grade II listed house has been beautifully and sensitively restored and enhanced to create a unique family home that is full of comfort, character and charm.
WHERE: Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.
INSIDE: A flag-stoned entrance hall opens to the centre of the house and leads into a light-filled kitchen, with bespoke units, a slate worktop and four door gas Aga as its centrepiece. Directly off the kitchen is a utility room with a pantry and walk-in larder. A study or snug is also accessed from the kitchen. Stone steps from the hall lead to a drawing room or library, which features an oriel window. Stone stairs lead to a dining room with a vaulted ceiling and impressive stone fireplace. An oak staircase leads up to the spectacular principal bedroom suite, with vaulted ceilings, triple aspect views and an open fireplace. Three further bedrooms sit on this floor and a fifth bedroom is located on the second floor.
OUTSIDE: The large and private terraced gardens are unusual for a town centre location. A flag-stoned terrace with two loggias provides an ideal entertaining space, from which steps lead up to a small walled vegetable garden and steps lead down to the main lawn with a high stone wall and established herbaceous borders. Tucked away through a gate is an outdoor pool, pool house and sauna.
HOW MUCH: Offers in excess of £3.5 million.
