Mr Clarke thinks:
This is an idyllic place to call home. The sense of history is inspiring, yet the modern interior is comfortable and calming. The mix of old and new will keep conversation with friends flowing for years.

Manor Farm House is a magnificent Grade-II listed manor built predominantly in the 17th Century with 16th Century origins.

Mrs Clarke loves:
The open-plan kitchen will play host to family gatherings, kitchen table suppers and many important meetings. Standing at the kitchen island is like being inside the pages of Living Etc.

Set within 1/2 an acre of beautifully curated gardens in the heart of the pretty village of Gaydon, the vast property has been lovingly restored and modernised to create a modern home for the most discerning of house hunter. Accommodation exceeds 4500 sq ft with four bedrooms and a beautiful ground floor level that interacts wonderfully with the surrounding terraces, lawns and walled gardens. There is a cellar, two-storey barn/garage and attic floor that all could be developed to provide further living or working space (subject to relevant planning permissions and listed building consent).

The house is approached via a quiet, tree-lined private lane that leads to the impressive property, where there is a substantial amount of space to park cars. Head through the gate and you are greeted with a wondrous sense of history when looking at the facade. There are nods to different eras and you are encouraged to enjoy the bountiful garden before heading inside.

Once inside, it takes a moment to catch your breath and appreciate the juxtaposition of the old and new. To the left is a huge open-plan modern country kitchen and dining room. To the right is a sumptuous living room that has an impressive inglenook at the heart of it and glazed doors that frame the gardens and bucolic views. Through a corridor at the side of this room is a spectacular reception room that boasts double height ceilings, 18th century panelling, log burner, stone fireplace and two vast windows that bathe the room with natural light.

The kitchen has been painstakingly renovated and carefully designed to provide the home owners with a room that caters for the modern family - both in terms of feeding hungry mouths and providing a space that can withstand the rigours of day to day living. The three stone mullioned windows look out across the walled garden, there is a cute window seat to relax with a cup of tea on a morning, a large dining area for sociable family meals, a grand kitchen island to lean against and set the world to rights and space for even the most ambitious home cook.

At the back of the ground level there is a separate home office with external access, a store room and a large two storey barn/garage. These rooms are flexible to suit the needs of the next custodian and could be used as they are or developed into something totally different.
Head up the 17th century staircase and onto the spacious and light landing. There is enough room on here to take a sofa and for it to be set up as a library or a snug. There are four large double-bedrooms and three bathrooms on this floor, plus lots of storage and windows that look out to country views.

At the front of the house is a pretty walled garden that is bursting with cottage style flowers. At the back is a large lawn that leads to the house. There are fruit trees, seating areas, space for a wild meadow and lots of opportunity to run wild. Pour yourself a large G&T, sit in a chair and look back at one of the most impressive properties in Warwickshire.
