The Manse is beautifully positioned within the picturesque and thriving village of Malpas. Set in a mature and established plot of around a quarter of an acre, an inspection is essential in order to appreciate the outstanding accommodation and uncompromising attention to detail throughout. The house has been lived in by the present owners for over twenty years and in that period has been sensibly restored, significantly extended and enhanced with outstanding quality features both internally and externally. Although in the centre of the village (access is from a long shared driveway leading directly from Malpas High Street) the setting of the house is exceptionally tranquil and it enjoys splendid views over the village bowling green towards the outstandingly beautiful and historic St Oswald's church.

Internally the accommodation is far larger than the external appearance may initially suggest. In total the accommodation extends to approximately 3680 sq ft and provides fantastic versatility.

Throughout the accommodation there is an excellent blend of traditional features and a tasteful contemporary specification. Viewers will also note the natural light that floods into many of the key rooms in the house. The accommodation opens with an entrance vestibule that has double doors leading to the living room. This splendid reception room has a feature bay window, fireplace and partially vaulted ceiling. Also accessed from the vestibule is a ground floor cloakroom and a useful study that is accessed via steps. The superb bespoke Poggenpohl kitchen has been intelligently designed to maximise storage and preparation space. It has rolled edged Corian preparation surfaces throughout and an outstanding range of integrated Gaggenau appliances. It also has a superb graphite four oven Aga as its primary focal point. The kitchen leads into the family room. The family room is a very versatile and large space that has oak flooring, a cast iron fireplace and double width glazed doors leading to the drawing/dining room. Access can also be gained to a very useful utility room that has Amtico flooring and is generously proportioned.

The drawing/dining room is an outstanding reception room of remarkable proportion. The room has numerous oak windows that overlook the garden and double width oak doors that lead to a south facing Indian stone patio. There is also a striking fireplace with raised slate hearth and open grate.

The first floor accommodation is similarly impressive and versatile. The master bedroom suite has been luxuriously arranged so as to comprise a fantastic dressing room with fitted wardrobes, large bedroom with balcony overlooking the bowling green and church and a high quality en-suite bathroom. There is also a walk in wardrobe with eaves storage over. Bedrooms two and three are of large double proportion whilst bedrooms four and five are highly attractive and slightly unusually shaped bedrooms ideal for those with young children. Completing the accommodation is a family bathroom and separate wet room/wc.

The Manse stands in a plot of approximately a quarter of an acre. To the front there is a gravelled driveway that provides off road parking for 5 - 6 vehicles. Off the driveway is the detached brick built double garage.

The gardens are principally to the side and are south easterly in their aspect. There is a lovely area of circular lawn with well stocked beds and borders surrounding which provide complete privacy within a village setting. There is also to the side a beautiful garden with feature Indian stone patio, a hot house with underfloor heating, curved screening of pleached apple trees and more well stocked beds and borders.
