Manor Farmhouse is a Grade II listed period dwelling sited within the village on the south easterly edge of the farm.

A handsome and substantial property, the dwelling is currently split into two dwellings but is more likely to suit being combined again. The easterly section is just winding down from being used in conjunction with an award winning bed and breakfast business. The property has 8 bedrooms, 2 kitchens, associated pantry’s / larders and sitting and dining rooms as well as bathrooms, toilets, utility rooms.

In need of modernisation to bring the property to current standards it provides excellent scope to return it to a singular family home.

To the rear of the house is a walled garden with listed, thatched wall, adjacent tennis court and swimming pool. There are ancillary outbuildings forming the boundary bordering the roadside. Behind is a small paddock with shelter and adjacent open fronted portal framed barn used for machinery storage but with potential for conversion.

The farm provides an excellent partridge and pheasant shoot, currently in conjunction with land nearby. We are informed that the farm can provide in isolation 5 or 6 good drives at present with scope for perhaps 6 100-150 bird days through the season.

Close to the village and near the farmhouse is an equestrian yard complex and associated paddocks and woodland extending to about 25 acres adjoining the farm road. Currently used as a livery yard the yard provides 23 stables in all with 14 being of concrete block constriction, 5 of wooden construction and 4 in metal buildings.

Mains electricity and water connected albeit through the farm itself.

Access to the A338 is some 450m away to the east via the farm road with the grazing being located in 2 blocks of fenced paddocks either side of the same access road.

On the westerly boundary of the farm lies an agricultural building of about 7,500 sq.ft in total. With chalk floor and 2 enclosed sides the building is located outside the AONB and has a Permitted Development Rights application pending for conversion to a residential dwelling.

The balance of land extends to about 455 acres and lies in a ring fence of mainly arable cropping. In a number of enclosures the internal boundaries are banks, hedges and wooded enclosures as is common in such settings. The land generally undulates but rises to its highest point being a trig point to the north west of the farm. Adjacent is Inham Down which includes a steep grassed bank and woodland used in the shoot as well as a grass airstrip which has been used historically and still features in pilots guides. The land falls away to the south with a natural bowl to the east which is well utilised in the shoot.

An arable farm growing a mix of winter crops at present but with areas of grass, some of the land is in environmental schemes with woodland and game cover plots throughout. Well served by tracks, either stoned or tarmacadam the balance of the land has access via grassed paths or rides in the woodland. There is piped water to some fields and a number of footpaths cross the land. A byway lies on the northerly and southerly boundaries and the farm is within a Countryside Stewardship Scheme.
