Property Description

Tenure: Freehold

Burstow Manor is a sumptuous and remarkably original fourteenth century moated Manor House dating back to 1334. One of the earliest surviving houses in the area, the house has a rich provenance and has been described as 'Surely the finest of its period in Surrey'. Originally, a two bay hall house, with a magnificent crown post roof, the property offers a wealth of character and charm and has particularly spacious accommodation. The Grade II* listing is due to the very detailed moulded cornices and tie beams and the first floor solar with notable crown post and strutted arch braces. The accommodation comprises on the ground floor, large reception hall, living room, with wood burner, separate dining room and stunning kitchen/breakfast room with Aga and Smeg cooker. On the first floor, there are 5 bedrooms, with 2 with ensuite and a further wet room and library. On the second floor, there is a further bedroom also offering ensuite facilities.

Separate from the house is a fine self-contained annexe with garaging below; suitable as a home office or for staff. In recent years the house has undergone extensive and sympathetic upgrading. The property has attractive tile hung and rendered elevations with quality oak framed leaded double glazed windows under a slate roof. Written expert analysis of the timbers reports that the house was constructed using truly massive locally sourced Oak timbers of the highest quality. There are many important features to note; not least the magnificent Inglenook fireplace standing in the centre of the property. There is a large wood burner in the lounge. Everywhere you look the house offers something of interest, such as the quaint built-in antique study desk and dresser and the wealth of oak floors and beamed ceilings.

Outside, the house is approached from a private gated drive which leads to one of three bridges that span a complete original water-filled defensive moat that encircles the house and is well stocked with large carp and perch. There is an ample parking area within and outside of the moat, forward of the house. Three bridges (one for vehicles, a footbridge and a drawbridge) connect the house to the rest of the grounds which surround the property and give the house a unique dimension. There is an extensive terrace and lawns edged with flower and shrub beds and water lilies in the moat. Beyond the moat a paddock overlooks country views beyond. Standing in this private back water position the Manor house, with some timbers of immense proportion, offers a truly unique living experience and is ideal to host parties, events, banquets and other special occasions.
