To TheManor Born “In the heart of the Norfolk Broads lies this manor house outstanding, with stunning landscaped gardens and a fantastic range of outbuildings; the gorgeous indoor pool will certainly delight the family, while spacious and flexible character accommodation affords an exceptional lifestyle nice and easy.” “We’ve never really thought of this as a sprawling ‘manor house’, because it has such a cosy, friendly aura about the place – and visitors always say what a lovely feeling there is here,” so state the owners of this highly impressive period residence. Presiding over one and a half acres of beautifully landscaped gardens, TheManorHouse is set within easy walking distance of Wroxham, enjoying a wonderfully quiet yet fantastically convenient location. Dating back to 1600, this property presents the most wonderful opportunity to embrace a piece of living history – while the fabulous and extensive outbuildings provide innate flexibility, to be realised either now or in the future. 17th Century Character Thought to have been built by the Vicar of Wroxham’s son around 1610, TheManorHouse changed hands in 1890 as a gentleman’s residence and, prior to that, it had at one time been a farmhouse called ‘Dairy Farm’. “There’s a piece of loose stone in the dining room with the date 1613 engraved upon it,” the owners note, adding, “but, interestingly, someone from English Heritage “It’s a very cosy, friendly house and everyone always says that it has a lovely feeling about it.” examined the original oak roof timbers a few years ago and declared that the house almost certainly pre-dates 1600.” There is a wealth of character features to relish, including a lovely original inglenook fireplace in the dining room, many original exposed beams and gorgeous old pamment tiles and flagstone flooring. Tremendous Family Home The property has, of course, been added to and changed over the years, but it has kept a wonderful family ambience at its heart and the accommodation today reflects that. The current owners use the games room extensively during the summer, its soaring vaulted and panelled ceiling providing a most dramatic and wonderful backdrop. “It’s fantastic when the grandchildren come to stay, because it’s such a large space, they don’t need to use our sitting room or snug at all!” the owners smile. This impressive room leads into the garden room and, with both enjoying direct access on to the garden, it creates a wonderful cohesive space for entertaining. “It’s great because if we are having a barbeque and the weather turns on us, we can cook under the covered area and eat in the conservatory” the owners reveal. In addition to this fantastic main reception space, there are the two sitting rooms as well as the formal dining room and brilliant breakfast kitchen. “The kitchen is a great size, really sunny and with a really useful walk in pantry – and it leads into the hall, off which is the garden room, so it’s perfect for entertaining,” the owners conclude. Extensive & Flexible Outbuildings One of the elements that most attracted the owners to this property 13 years ago, was the delightful and extensive outbuildings. “We wanted somewhere to garage our collection of cars and this has been perfect,” the owners confirm. There is a most attractive main brick barn as well as an open fronted car bay garage and another four car garage with workshop – and, as the owners point out, the stunning indoor swimming pool could be easily converted into further garaging if required. But if cars aren’t your thing, these outbuildings present tremendous opportunity to pursue a variety of hobbies or to work from home perhaps – and of course the potential for independent annexe accommodation is very evident.
