The house is faithful to its period and boasts spectacular panelling, stained glass windows and herringbone pattern brickwork.<BR/>The Jacobean staircase, 17th Century panelling and 15th Century stone fireplace are particularly striking features of the house. Aside from its architectural and historical pedigree, the house functions as a beautiful family home ideal for entertaining or family living in equal measure. The main entrance is dominated by a fabulous oak door which enters into a cloister leading to a small internal courtyard. Around this are a number of exceptionally fine rooms but the Great Hall, living room and dining room are particularly impressive.<BR/><BR/>On the first floor, the main bedroom has an en suite bathroom and dressing room with a minstrel's gallery overlooking the Great Hall. There are seven further bedrooms, four of which are effectively en suite, and one of which would make an equally impressive main bedroom.<BR/><BR/><Gardens and Grounds><BR/>Immediately to the south of the manor, is a beautiful topiaried garden enclosed within a listed brick wall. This garden operates as a series of enclosures, one of which is laid out as a chess garden. The eastern elevation overlooks a neat lawned courtyard where a secondary entrance gives separate access onto the lane. Further to the north is a swimming pool with a neat terrace surround and an ornamental pond and tennis court.<BR/><BR/><Barns and Outbuildings><BR/>To the east of the house is a listed barn and the original medieval gate house with one bedroom Bailiff's room above, also listed Grade I. These date from the 15th Century and comprise five stables, a tack room, hay barn and Polo practice pen (Stable Block 1). Forming the eastern side is an impressive 111 ft long Grade I listed threshing barn also dating from the late 15th Century with two gabled entrances and very fine timber framed interiors (Threshing Barn). Adjacent, is the beautiful Grade I listed Dovecote from the same period.<br><br>
