General - The Manor is a handsome Georgian Grade II listed house principally dating from the 18th Century with substantial Victorian additions. The house stands in extensive grounds and boasts approximately 5000 square feet of living space arranged over three floors. The Manor was in the ownership of the Paget family eminent farmers, bankers and politicians for over 250 years. Over the years the house has been an integral part of the village and was once home to the local doctor. The property was purchased by the present owners some 20 years ago when it was substantially modernised and renovated. The accommodation flows exceptionally well with elegant reception rooms combining with more intimate living space where beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplaces are to be found. Many period features have been preserved including sash windows with shutters, a magnificent staircase, beamed ceilings, stone mullioned windows and two cellars with wine bins. The house is set in extensive grounds with a magnificent walled garden and sweeping lawns to the South of the house.
Location - The Manor is located in a conservation area on the Southern fringes of Ibstock with pretty country walks through the National Forest from the house. There are an extensive range of amenities in the village including schools, shops and a doctors surgery.
