Splendid 16th Century manor house, with adjacent barn benefitting from planning consent for conversion into a separate dwelling.
This exceptional Grade II listed detached manor house has plenty of history and offers impressive, spacious accommodation, together with a beautiful plot of around half an acre.
The house, with its pretty white walls and beautiful climbing wisteria, includes a total of six bedrooms and three principal reception rooms, along with a spacious reception hall. The large kitchen/breakfast room, complete with Aga, features a cosy corner seat and there is a separate utility room too.
Fine period features can be found throughout the property, including fireplaces and exposed beams, and many rooms boast a dual aspect. The sizeable interior and versatile layout also mean a configuration as one substantial home, or as a main house with adjoining annexe, are equally well suited.
Upstairs, the six bedrooms are all distinctive in their own right; from the master bedroom with its elegant vaulted ceiling, to the second bedroom with its secret doorway, each one is utterly charming and has its own unique character. The master bedroom also includes an en suite shower room.
Outside, the property enjoys beautiful, enclosed gardens that wrap around the house. Lush lawns, brick paths and mature trees provide a gorgeous setting for relaxation, family fun and al fresco dining. There is also a large parking area with planning permission recently granted for a double carport with storage room to the side. In all, the plot extends to approximately 0.65 acre.
Adjacent to The Old Manor, Old Manor Barn represents a rare development opportunity, either as an integral part of the existing setting or as a separate dwelling. Planning permission has been granted to convert the barn into a four bedroom, four bathroom house with an open plan kitchen/living area with fireplace, and mezzanine floor overlooking the Vale of Aylesbury.
Undoubtedly one of the area's finest, most admired homes, the property offers the best of all worlds: a substantial period home, beautiful gardens, redevelopment potential, and an ideal location within the Aylesbury grammar schools catchment area, only 2 miles from Tring.
The pretty village of Marsworth offers the best of both worlds; offering quintessential village life, yet only around 2 miles from the facilities of nearby Tring.
All Saints Church, dating back to the 12th Century, is centrally located in the village, along with the Red Lion, one of the village's two pubs, and which itself dates back to the 17th Century. The beautiful countryside that surrounds the village is ideal for walking, and includes miles of tucked-away footpaths, the Grand Union Canal, and the Tring reservoirs.
Nearby communication links are excellent, including the A41 at Tring, which provides a dual carriageway link direct to the M25 (J20). Tring also has its own mainline train station, with regular and direct service to London Euston in approx. 35 mins.
Educational facilities are excellent for all ages; the vast majority of homes in the village fall within the Grammar Schools catchment area in Aylesbury, and others being served by Tring School.
The nearby towns offer a comprehensive range of facilities, from the boutiques and coffee shops in picturesque Tring and Berkhamsted, to the shopping centres and department stores of Hemel Hempstead and Aylesbury, both of which also boast multiplex cinemas and extensive leisure facilities.
