Manor Farm is a unique rural village smallholding comprising an attractive house, a superb range of courtyard buildings and stables with development potential and in all is situated within around 8.4 acres of well wooded gardens, grounds and grass paddocks.
The property is nicely positioned within West Lutton, set back from the street, behind the village green and with its land wrapping around the Grade II* Listed, St. Mary's Church. There are very large gardens, which have been well landscaped and are on all sides. The front garden, which is mostly laid to lawn, is enclosed by an original set of iron railings.
It is understood that Manor Farm was originally known as St Mary's Hall and comprised the base of a significant farming unit. The property has a wealth of history with the house dating back to the Georgian era and the barns are believed to be over four hundred years old.
The property is ideal for those looking for an attractive rural residence with land, particularly with equestrian interests and in our opinion, there is also vast development potential for a variety of uses on the large range of courtyard buildings, subject to the necessary consents.
Indeed, the traditional buildings have historically had planning consent for residential development to convert to four houses and also planning for change of use for holiday cottages however due to the current vendors personal preference they have decided not to develop the property. Please note that the property will be sold with no development clawback and neither the house or buildings are Listed buildings.
