The Manor House is a fine example of period architecture in The Cotswolds in the form of a pretty village house in Frampton Mansell. Believed to be 17th century, and with elements from the 15th century, with stone mullion windows and leaded lights, this house is not short of character.

The interior is flexible and accommodation comprises entrance hall, dining room, drawing room, study, family room, master bedroom suite and four further bedrooms, plus two bathrooms.

Outside the front garden has views across a meadow to the Neo-Norman village church with its unusual Italian tower, and offers a rose arbour as its focal point. Two terraced seating areas at the front and back provide room for outdoor entertaining, and the garden benefits from well-stocked borders and colour throughout the seasons.

Frampton Mansell is commonly held to be one of the most sought-after villages near Cirencester and has its own amenities, with further shopping available at Kemble (seven miles) and Cirencester (six miles).

The guide price is £1.2m. For further information please contact Jackson-Stops & Staff on 01285 653334 or visit www.jackson-stops.co.uk.
