Bedrooms: 7
This stunning Jacobean manor house occupies a tranquil position in the hamlet of Hannington Wick and enjoys open views over its own land, as well as well-proportioned accommodation and charming gardens.

Grade ll* listed with a striking and handsome façade, the house has many fine period features - yet enjoys a modern and convivial layout with excellent light from its many double aspect rooms.

Unusually for a house of this period, there is a large and open-plan kitchen/breakfast room creating a wonderful social space with ample room for two tables as well as many units and a gas AGA. This is amply backed up by a large walk-in pantry and store room. The formal reception rooms to the front are great entertaining spaces and for more intimate family time there is the snug, a more cosy reception room. Working from home is catered for in the well-positioned study.

The principal bedroom suite, complete with en-suite bathroom, can be found on the first floor together with a further four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The second floor has an additional two bedrooms, both with en suite bathrooms and would make an ideal teenage floor.

The fully independent annexe has private access and is laid out as a one bedroom flat. This could provide more family space, staff quarters or a guest wing, as it joins to the main house on both levels.

The large garden room with lofty ceilings is a wonderful space for entertaining – with a stone fireplace and separate heating, making it an excellent all year round room. This flows beautifully, through double doors, onto a garden terrace and croquet lawn.

Outside

This handsome house occupies a wonderful position in this quiet hamlet. The grounds are glorious and well planned with many mature specimen trees throughout. There are different areas within the formal gardens all of which are interlinked and provide a wonderful feel as you walk through them. The front garden provides the main entrance with shaped yew topiary as well as a hidden garden to one side, complete with nature pond and mature trees. This in turn leads via a gate within the stone wall to the croquet lawn, which is bordered by a mature yew hedge and has direct access from the garden room. To the rear is a well-stocked orchard with a range of fruit trees as well as a discrete tennis court and garage complex. This has a double garage and two loose boxes.

Adjacent to the house is a paddock of some 4.7 acres. This is excellent pastureland and has been grazed by a local farmer under a grazing license.

Next to the paddock is a further 9.42 acres of woodland that is available by separate treaty.
