About the property

Originally a 15th Century manor house which largely burned down in the late 18th Century, Drayton Manor was re-built following the fire in a distinctive Portuguese style to reflect the origins of the wife of the then owner, Thomas Meade. The house today is a very pretty Grade II Listed, 2-storey manor house built of mellow red brick under a Welsh slate and plain tile roof and has a classic late-Georgian symmetrical front elevation decorated with flanking louvered shutters and an attractive stone doorcase.
The entire property has undergone a full programme of renovation and modernisation to the highest standards over the past few years. Under the direction of the renowned interior designer, Melanie Hall, an ultra-modern and vibrant style has been introduced to the interior of main house, which respects the authenticity and style of the original building and yet provides a striking contrast with the beautiful, old exterior.

On the ground floor a great sense of space and light has been created with broad openings off the centrally-positioned reception hall to the sitting and dining rooms on either side. Both rooms have tall windows overlooking the garden and fireplaces fitted with wood-burning stoves. The dining room can comfortably seat twelve and is open-plan to the state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen with central kitchen island and breakfast room. Adjacent to the drawing room is the family room and the newly-built orangery, which opens onto the terrace. Beyond the kitchen is the study, which contains the inglenook fireplace from the original house, the cloakroom, the walk-in larder and wine room, the laundry room and the boot room.

On the first floor the layout of rooms has been re-configured to provide a larger master bedroom suite, with a dressing room and en-suite bath and shower room. There is a secondary double bedroom with en-suite bath and shower room and two further double bedrooms, which are both en-suite to a dual-access bath and shower room.

SECONDARY ACCOMMODATION, GARAGING & OUTBUILDINGS
Located a little way from the main house are Apple Loft Cottage and Drayton Manor Cottage. The former currently serves as a guest cottage and has a sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room, three bedrooms, shower room and cloakroom. The latter is used for staff accommodation and has a sitting room, kitchen breakfast room, two bedrooms, shower room and cloakroom. Attached at the rear of the house is a newly extended double garage with adjacent bicycle store, log store and gardener’s WC.

A short walk from the main house is a newly built home office and gym which overlooks the stream and pond. There is also a summer house and adjacent to the kitchen garden are the garden store and greenhouse. In the larger of the two paddocks is a brand new steel framed modern barn, ideal for car or general storage, machinery or stabling.
