This simply stunning, Grade II listed village residence sits proudly upon Copmanthorpe Main Street overlooking St Giles Church and the green which is adorned with beautiful blossom trees. Nestled within the oldest part of the village, amongst some of the most beautiful properties Copmanthorpe has to offer, is Manor Farm House. The extensive, multifunctional accommodation rivals that of most period property on the market today. An additional bonus, the property also includes an attached, one bedroom, self-contained annexe. Overall, the spacious internal accommodation extends to just short of 4,000 sqft.

The main property features ground floor accommodation to include a welcoming entrance hall with Jacobean open well staircase with turned balusters, three large reception rooms, a home office, ground floor shower room, rear lobby, conservatory, kitchen diner with panty and utility room. To the first floor five bedrooms are served by both a bathroom and a shower room, a sixth room provides a home office and has a characterful leaded, internal window looking down upon the feature staircase.

In addition to the main home is a self-contained, annex, accessed via an internal staircase from the kitchen or external granary style staircase. The open plan living area comprises seating and dining areas alongside a fully equipped kitchen. The double bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room with Velux window.

Externally, the generous walled garden is divided into a large lawned garden with flowerbeds brimming with, mature plants and shrubs. Through the rose arch, is a large greenhouse overlooking a pond, numerous fruit trees, a hand build circular, stone flowerbed and a large paved area which could easily be converted into parking for numerous vehicles. A recently erected fence has been equipped with double gates to assist future vehicular access.

The rendered, Georgian facade sits behind a walled, gravelled forecourt. A side gate leads to the garden. A timber panel front door with fan light above opens to a spacious entrance hall. It's is from here one first catches a glimpse of the Jacobean staircase. Local researchers understand Manor Farm House was mostly demolished in 1710 and rebuilt. Part of the rear of the property is believed to be very much older and may have been retained when the original building was demolished.

Located off the entrance hall, as one would expect in property of this size, is a formal dining room. This room, painted in a fitting, Farrow and Ball Book Room Red, has a large sash window to the front elevation and a decorative open brick fireplace with a carved, stone surround featuring an English rose and Scottish thistle.

To the opposite side of the entrance hall, the living room features a showpiece Inglenook fireplace fitted with a multi fuel stove. A light and spacious family room with a window to the front elevation and a part glazed external door leading to the lawned garden.

Tucked neatly below the stairs is a small room with tiled floor which is currently used as a garden utility room. Once 'the plucking room' this is a useful storage space which would also serve as an additional hobbies or office area. Period feature windows and exposed beams all add to the character of this wonderful home. Beyond, the conservatory is laid with checkerboard, tile flooring and features two pairs of double patio doors leading out onto the lawned garden and patio seating area.

Passing what could well be an original, timber door, one of many original features, a stone flagged floor covers the inner hallway. Here the astute viewer will notice the old servant bells, connecting the rear of the property to other areas of the home by their original wires, long since disconnected, but possibly a project in waiting for the lucky, new owners of Manor Farm House. The stone flagged flooring flows into a fourth reception room which is currently used as a home office and is conveniently served by the ground floor WC and shower room.

Beyond the inner hallway, quite astonishingly from the frontage of the property, is a fifth reception room. A spacious room currently used as a sitting room, fitted with a multi fuel stove and unique, arched, external doors to the rear garden which flood the room with natural light.

The traditional farm house kitchen features an abundance of fitted wall and base units with laminate work preparation areas over. The main focal point is a deep red Aga, which sits alongside an electric Neff hob for convenience. The oak beam above is one of many beams in this characterful room. A tile floor and Yorkshire sliding sash windows add further to the character. Storage is provided in a void below the rear staircase which leads to the annex. Two internal doors either side of the kitchen lead to a pantry and a utility room. The utility room provides ample space for white goods and houses the recent, gas fired, central heating boiler which is serviced annually.

Going back to the main entrance hall, the Jacobean staircase takes you to the first floor. This area is flooded with light from a large window to the rear. A large, part galleried landing give access to the first floor accommodation.

At the top of the stairs, to the right is a large bedroom with fitted wardrobes. In keeping with the rest of the property, this room has high ceilings, an exposed beam and Yorkshire Slider style windows overlooking the rear. Also off the adjoining landing area, serving the first floor, is a family bathroom with three piece suite and a separate shower room.

Another good size bedroom, currently used as a single features a full wall of modern fitted furniture offering an abundance of storage. This is a private room naturally lit by a Velux window.

To the left of the staircase, following the galleried landing, there are two very large bedrooms to the front aspect, each with fitted wardrobes and period fireplaces, one featuring an en-suite shower room. Between these rooms a single bedroom also enjoys views to the front elevation over The Green and the village church.

The sixth room, currently used as a hobbies and reading room, features delightful period windows with dual aspect, internal and external views.

Attached to the house is a one bedroom annex, believed to have originally been an apple store. Access can be gained via an outside stone staircase, or from the rear staircase in the kitchen. This one bedroom, self-contained apartment with en-suite shower room and open plan living/dining/kitchen area is ideal for guests, teenage children or as an additional income stream.

Externally, pedestrian access via the main street leads to the front of the property which is set back from the road with a walled, gravel forecourt.

Viewers are always enchanted by a walled garden and this one does not disappoint. Large and very well-tended over the years, the garden is mostly laid to lawn with an abundance of mature plants and shrubs, various patio seating areas, decorative raised beds, a pond and a very large greenhouse. To the rear of the garden, a new fence with double gates allows access to parking for numerous vehicles.
