An elegant manor house in a picturesque parkland setting in the Chiltern Hills
Approached via a long driveway, Mayertorne Manor sits amid its own land in a secluded setting surrounded by woodland and paddocks.
Constructed in the late 18th Century of brick under a slate roof, the accommodation is arranged over three floors with high ceilings and good proportions throughout. Internally, Mayertorne Manor is full of character and beautifully presented.
The front door leads into the reception hall and onwards into a light and spacious drawing room with a fireplace to one end and floor to ceiling sash windows overlooking the immaculate gardens. The drawing room flows through to a grand dining room, perfect for entertaining. Beyond lies the stylishly finished kitchen with wall and base units, a gas range cooker and an island unit with a unique marble finish.
To the right of the reception hall, an elegant staircase leads downstairs to a cosy sitting room and separate study, together with a bedroom suite and bathroom providing excellent guest accommodation. French doors in the study open out to a terraced seating area adjoining the fine gardens.
The staircase from the reception hall rises to the first floor landing and the four main bedrooms, including a charming master bedroom suite which has an en suite dressing room and bathroom.
The gardens and grounds provide a superb, mature setting for the house, laid mainly to lawn and studded with a selection of specimen trees. Most notable are the 120-year-old Wellingtonia, a Mulberry and two cedar of Lebanon. The driveway winds past a pond which attracts a variety of wildlife, culminating in a paved parking and turning area.
To the west is a charming walled garden with formal flower beds, the tennis court and a rose and honeysuckle clad pergola. A range of useful outbuildings provide storage on the east wall. The house overlooks the principal gardens and the well fenced paddock which lies to the south of the house. Adjoining is a parcel of mixed woodland.
