Estate Agent Description
A unique opportunity to purchase The Manor in North Huish and create an iconic and prestigious dream home
The manor Luscombe Maye are delighted to bring to market The Manor, North Huish. The house is in the hamlet of North Huish within the South Devon Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty. The Manor is situated in an elevated and tranquil position adjacent to the 14th century St Mary’s Church, and enjoys picturesque views across the valley to the hills of the South Hams. It is believed to have been built in the late-18th century by a Richard King of Fowlescombe. Unlisted and on the market for the first time in 60 years, its sale is a once in a lifetime chance to create an iconic and prestigious dream home within very easy reach of the A38 (2 miles away) and the railway stations of Totnes and Ivybridge (each within 10 miles).
A rendered exterior hides Georgian stone walls. An earlier dwelling is believed to have stood on this site for many years before the Georgian manor. An inglenook fireplace remains from an earlier dwelling in the back kitchen.
The property is in need of substantial remedial works and parts of the building are currently a ruin and are inaccessible. Potential buyers are able to view the glazed entrance porch, which leads into a high ceilinged hall leading towards a grand walnut staircase. The hall is tiled with patterned Victorian tiles. Off the hall are a large study/library with a fitted mahogany bookcase and a light and airy drawing room, both south-facing with stunning views over the valley. Marble mantels and decorative coving adorn each of these rooms. Part of what would have been the kitchen area is visible to see and the hall opens into a conservatory which overlooks the south-facing garden, with its views over the valley below.
The staircase ascends to a spacious landing on which traces of hand painted wallpaper, the remnants of a ceiling medallion and the continuation of the decorative coving can be seen. The windows in the large main bedroom boast even better views than the drawing room beneath it. Potential purchasers can also view one other bedroom and the bathroom. The two further bedrooms off the landing are currently not available to view.
The Floorplan shows the full extent of the house including internal courtyard and the original servants’ quarters (too damaged to view) together with the cellar. Not shown are the warren of attic rooms under the eaves.
The grounds, just under 0.8 acres, include a south-facing garden laid to lawn, a Victorian walled garden in need of restoration, parking for several vehicles and a derelict garage. The garden is elevated above the road. Its southern front boundary is enclosed by a wrought iron fence. High stone walls enclose the northern and western boundaries. Somewhat neglected the gardens are full of beautiful wildflowers and bird song. Shrubs and trees have taken over the Victorian walled garden to the rear of the property.
