The Manor House
Occupying a superb central position in the very heart of Prestbury Village, this grand residence offers quintessential British character, steeped in history with a spectacular backdrop of private landscaped gardens extending to over 1 acre. The Manor House is thought to stand on the site of the cells of the Monks of St. Werburgh. Extensively rebuilt in 1708 around the structure of a much earlier building (according to a terrier inscribed 1696) the home boasts grandly proportioned accommodation over 3 floors with immense charm, character and quality throughout.
It is rare indeed that an opportunity to acquire a property of such idiosyncratic quality and position occurs.
The grounds & accommodation make a wonderful family home close to schools, transport links and village amenities.
The Manor House occupies a rare position of such size and privacy yet so central to the Village and its grounds are of paramount importance to the overall setting and personality of this wonderful residence. Tended to meticulously and sympathetically and re-invented in areas by the present owners, the grounds of the property extend to just over one and half acres and feature an extensive lawned area, herb garden, rose garden with wisteria and laburnum arch and in 2008 an enchanting Rose Garden was built adjacent to the property. The grounds are flanked by many fine deciduous trees and a wide variety of specimen plants and shrubs – including many camellia, azalea, robinia, blue cypress, walnut, oak, silver birch and fine copper beech and yew trees, contributing to the utmost privacy and the gardens are intersected by Spencer Brook – a stream crossed by a footbridge to a small woodland path.
There are two gated entrance driveways, the main entrance leading to the front entrance with a broad turning circle laid to gravel with hardstanding for several motor vehicles. The secondary entrance leads to the detached double garage.
