Welcome to The Manor House, Hartopp Road

Once inside, you are welcomed by a large and bright reception hall with stairs rising to the first floor flanked by original leaded windows. Doors open into the drawing room, dining room, kitchen and guest wc. Stairs lead down to the wine cellar and a further 'servants' staircase also provides access to the first floor. The delightful drawing room enjoys views over the rear garden with a large walk-in bay window. The formal dining room again offers a large bay window with views over the rear garden and also features an ornate decorative ceiling and inglenook fireplace.

The kitchen provides a range of wall and base units with Corian work surfaces and a large island unit with Corian work surface and undermount sink. Inbuilt appliances include two ovens, a steam oven, warming drawer, microwave, dishwasher and fridge and freezer.
From the kitchen, a door leads through to a bright link extension/snug which gives access to the large double garage and the living room. From here there is a door to a useful shower room and also access to the rear garden and to a courtyard seating area to the front. The living room features a spiral staircase leading to a superb, large entertainment room currently used as a snooker room but offering several different uses such as a home gym or cinema room. This area could also provide the ideal space for an annex. Leading on from the living room is a lovely conservatory making the most of the views over the rear garden.

There is a range of fitted wardrobes and a modern en-suite with twin sinks and a walk-in shower. Two further bedrooms have views over the front with one of the bedrooms currently being used as a library/office with fitted shelving. A large bathroom/dressing room connects to the master bedroom but could easily be converted into a generous double bedroom. In its current format, it enjoys views over the side and rear gardens and features fitted wardrobes and a large bath on a raised platform. The crowning glory on this floor is the exquisite and quite unique house bathroom; a truly stunning space with feature glass wall offering uninterrupted views over the rear gardens and the treetops of Sutton Park. A sculpture-like free standing bath is ideally positioned to enjoy the views while remaining perfectly private. furthermore there is a separate walk-in shower cubicle and wash hand basin in vanity and a wall hung wc. To the second floor, there are two further bedrooms and a shower room.
To the front, a gated 'in & out' driveway offers a feeling of grandeur and enjoys areas of lawn and planted borders. The delightful rear gardens have been well maintained and offer a haven of tranquility to enjoy.
A beautiful Indian sandstone patio extends across the rear of the property providing plenty of space for entertaining and alfresco dining. Mature borders throughout the garden give a feeling of privacy while a large decked area covers a swimming pool which is no longer in use but could be re-instated quite easily should the new owner wish.
