For Sale Freehold
Peterstow Manor is an elegant Grade II listed house. Significantly extended in brick and stucco in the 18th Century, it was at one time the vicarage. Today it is a lovely family house with large reception rooms, high ceilings and sash windows set within mature grounds dominated by a magnificent cedar.
The drive sweeps down to the house off the lane. The front door, sheltered by a porch, leads into a remarkable long hall which includes a cloakroom and the elegant staircase and various doors off to the all the main reception rooms. The music room is to the left of the front door and opposite tall double glazed doors leading into the drawing room, beyond which is the dining room. Both have high ceilings, ornate fireplaces and bay windows with views over the garden. The former old kitchen is now a gymnasium with a sauna. The new open plan modern kitchen/breakfast room has a large island unit with a marble top and extensive fully fitted floor and wall units. This, combined with the conservatory, is an exceptional area for entertaining. The office also acts as a laundry room.
The cantilevered staircase with ornate balustrading is lit by natural light from the cupola above. Off the wide top landing are the three principle bedrooms each with a bathroom. At the rear of the house are three further bedrooms, a bathroom and separate WC.
Dominated by the grand cedar, the extensive lawns slope gradually with a south easterly aspect. To one side is a tennis court. There is terracing off the kitchen and conservatory for outdoor entertaining, and a door within the garden wall provides additional access.
Above and beside the house there is a grass paddock which is also available separately to the main house and garden.
