This stunning and well maintained Manor is situated on the edge of the well regarded village of Marshfield with its extensive range of facilities.
Architecturally stunning and Grade ll Listed due to its plethora of fine period features, it occupies a discrete location down a tree lined drive and overlooking its own well maintained gardens. The current owners have recently added to the house with a sympathetic, yet modern extension which has created a large ‘heart of the home’ kitchen/dining/living room, flowing beautifully onto the gardens.
The 17th Century Baroque façade is of particular note with its 7 symmetrical first floor windows and 8 pane glazed ground floor windows with matching 8 panel door and bolection moulded surround. The formal internal layout adds to the charm of this much loved period property.
The large welcoming entrance hall has part wooden panelling and stone floors as well as an inner hall with impressive Jacobean staircase. The drawing room, as with most of the rooms, is large and well-proportioned with a double aspect and views over the private grounds. The windows are complete with shutters and window seats. There is a stunning central fireplace with stone surround.
The adjacent dining room, again double aspect, has a wonderful atmosphere with its full height panelling and large open fireplace.
The modern valued extension, completed in 2013, has transformed the property into a large family house fit for modern day needs and lifestyle. It is a superb multifunctional room, with a fully fitted kitchen, complete with granite top, 4 oven AGA (with gas module) and Sub-zero fridge/freezer. There are a bank of bi-fold and French doors opening up the majority of the space to the courtyard and garden beyond. There is also a discrete projector and screen, turning this room into a home cinema. The adjacent breakfast room, provides more convenient dining.
The Snug, is a warm and cosy room with large fire complete with wood burner and access to the outside.
The upper two floors provide 5 unique, large bedrooms all with lovely views, complemented with 4 bathrooms and a discrete study/bedroom off the half landing. The top floor is a surprising space with high ceilings and convenient laundry room.
The long cellar is accessed under the main stairs and is the perfect spot for wine storage.
Previously linked to the main house, but now blocked up, the annexe is fully self-contained with independent facilities and access to a small section of the garden. The main room is a homage to the modern part of the main house with similar valued ceilings and exposed rafters.
Situated on the edge of the well regarded village of Marshfield the house enjoys a tranquil and green outlook. The village has an abundant supply of facilities including; two pubs, post office, Central stores, hairdressers, garage, Teashop, Butchers, vets, doctors surgery and local primary school.

This beautiful house is beholden to its magical spot. Completely private and at the head of the tree lined driveway.

There are two main sections of lawn all of which are flat and it is walled to most sides.
