 BACKGROUND

At the time of its conversion in the late 1980s into the present complex of ten residential properties, Grenofen Manor had recently been a country club with a separate modern building to house the recreational facilities. The original manor house had been formed in the early 1800s, through the substantial remodelling and enlargement of a 17th century farmstead.

DESCRIPTION

Approached by a sloping private road (and then a tarmac driveway) with a breath-taking panorama of the Walkham valley, Grenofen Manor sits in its idyllic peaceful location looking onto mature parkland and pastureland. Some of the best views are to be had from all principal rooms of Number one which sits on the south-west corner, opening onto its own private section of a long terrace frontage.

Its interior spaces are well-proportioned, well-lit, and extend to approximately 1850 sqft.  The property has been well-maintained but now requires some general internal updating. Entrance is through a glazed porch leading into a hall which leads to the main sleeping accommodation upstairs. From this space, a kitchen/dining room opens, in turn, into a generous 20' double-aspect double-bayed sitting room. A corridor from the hallway leads to a laundry/utility room and further, onto a south facing study/ bedroom four, served by an adjacent shower room/wc.

The upstairs accommodation offers three double bedrooms. Bedroom three is south-facing with adjacent bathroom; bedroom two is west-facing with build-in wardrobes and en suite shower/wc; the 21' master bedroom facing south and west with its stunning views built-in wardrobes and a dressing area leading to an en suite bathroom.

The tarmac driveway leads to the rear of the manor and to a gravelled parking forecourt off which Number one has allocated parking plus its own detached double garage (18’ 9” x 17’ 3”) with remote-controlled electric up- and-over garage door together with separately metered lighting and power supply.
