The most beautifully restored and substantial Grade II Listed former farmhouse set in a unique setting a short drive from Cheltenham.
Manor Farm is the most beautiful Grade II Listed detached Georgian villa built in circa 1769.

It is as appealing internally as it is externally having been subject to a complete architectural re-design and renovation with great onus placed on luxury living. The detail throughout, both structural and decorative, has been implemented to the most discerning standards with great thought given to retaining the elegance of the original structure whilst seamlessly merging a more contemporary layout.
Set over three floors, entrance is gained through a reception hall leading to the principal reception rooms on the ground floor. The house on this level and throughout has a lovely feeling of symmetry enhanced by the high ceilings, some of which are beamed, and large sash windows.

The dining room shares the same proportions and elevations to the front, also with a log burner. The kitchen is set to the rear of the house with direct access, through an original farm door to outside. This beautiful room is the real hub of the house, spacious and well-appointed with a good range of bespoke handmade units under Silestone worktops and a Belfast sink. An induction hob is set into a unit within an Inglenook fireplace. A snug is set to the side with French doors leading to the garden. A cloakroom and utility complete the accommodation on this level.
