The Manor is a classic Georgian country house in a private position near Telford in Staffordshire. Externally the house has a perfectly balanced double-fronted façade with beautifully presented, light-filled rooms, which have spectacular views framed through large sash windows.

The property has been substantially refurbished with great attention to detail, leaving many period features in place like the original 18th century marble fireplace and polished wood floor in the dining room. Bedroom accommodation is upstairs, off the pretty first-floor landing which is lit by a stained-glass roof light.
