Great Engeham Manor
Great Engeham Manor is a most impressive Grade II Listed manor house of excellent proportions, believed to date, in part, from the 15th century with later 17th, 20th and 21st century additions. This interesting home has been sympathetically refurbished with the emphasis on attention to detail, boasting beautifully presented accommodation including a stylish refitted kitchen, bath and shower rooms, a fantastic billiards/function room with its own bar and a heated indoor swimming pool.
A short distance from the principal house is the outstanding timber framed barn Great Engeham Barn which was beautifully converted in 2002, and is open to the pitch, incorporating contemporary-style accommodation over two floors, with generous reception space, three bedrooms, a shower room, WC and a private gravelled courtyard garden. This is currently used as a holiday let.
The main house exudes character and charm with its abundance of oak timbers and beams. Generously proportioned reception rooms, offer superb areas for entertaining and include an elegant panelled drawing room which is open to the formal dining room, having an open fireplace and log burner and the latter, understood to form part of the original 15th century Wealden Hall house. Further receptions include a sitting room, a music room and a billiards/recreation room with reclaimed bar and door opening to an east facing terrace.
The remodelled and bespoke fitted kitchen by Mountshill Woodcraft, features an extensive range of cupboards with two central islands. Appliances comprise an electric three oven Aga with a two door warming oven, an integral microwave/combi oven, an integral fridge and freezer, two integral dishwashers and a filter tap. Off the kitchen there is a separate breakfast room with staircase leading up to first floor. A laundry room with two freestanding washing machines and dryers and an integral dishwasher completes the ground floor.
On the first floor are five bedrooms, including the excellent principal suite and the fifth bedroom which is presently used as a study. They are served by luxuriously appointed bath and shower rooms with stylish sanitary ware. The second floor is currently used as a teenager’s suite with two attic bedrooms and a shower room.
The indoor swimming pool complex incorporates a 44 ft heated pool, a WC and shower room.
Approached via sweeping carriage drive the house nestles within its lovely extensive gardens and grounds which feature ancient oak and horse chestnut trees, sweeping level lawns and attractive ponds.
