Description

Minstead Manor is set within a private estate with wonderful views over the parkland and woodland beyond. The house is a large Georgian style dwelling constructed in about 1973 on the site of the original manor house. The house is in need of

updating but offers beautifully proportioned rooms flooded with natural light, many with dual aspect enjoying far reaching parkland views. Several period features have been retained throughout with working fireplaces, gallery and of particular note is the beautiful bay window in the drawing

room and master bedroom.

The entrance hall gives access to the principal ground floor reception rooms. These include the drawing room with a large open fire place and door out to patio terrace, separate study and snug, dining room with open fireplace, gallery, 2 cloakrooms and working lift. Separate kitchen/breakfast room with AGA, boiler room and utility room. Back door out to triple garage, additional parking and garden beyond.

Upstairs consists of master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and dressing room. A further 3 / 4 good sized bedrooms with one ensuite and a separate family bathroom. There is also significant storage space in the loft accessed from upstairs.

Minstead Manor is approached via a private drive leading to a parking sweep in front of the house. The house lies in just under an acre which is mainly lawned with beautiful mature shrubs including rhododendrons, azalea and planted borders.

The garden is private and easily maintained and benefits from delightful far reaching panoramic parkland views.
