The Old Manor House is a beautiful traditional detached house with exposed external stonework under a natural slate roof. The property is a lovely character house set in mature gardens on the outskirts of Wadebridge adjacent to farmland and yet within a short stroll of the town centre itself. There is a separate dining and living room on the ground floor together with utility room and a fantastic kitchen/breakfast family room with bespoke fitted kitchen, mixture of granite and marble worktops and a wonderful blue Aga being the focal point. With the planning consent we feel this offers an extremely rare opportunity for those seeking a character home on the outskirts of the town with the potential to build a second dwelling.
Externally the gardens are a mixture of lawn with former quarry to side and lightly wooded section and extends to approximately three quarters of an acre to include the proposed building plot.
Comprehensive house history commissioned by the vendors indicated that a dwelling may have existing on the site as early as 1548 with older os plans dating to the 19th century showing additional buildings that included a tithe barn whilst in the early 20th century the quarry is mentioned. In 1965 the property was sold ending 114 years of ownership by the Cleave family.
Wadebridge itself is an extremely popular former market town and dissected by the River Camel and of course perfectly placed to take advantage of the most beautiful North Cornish coastline.
