Believed to date back to 1545, Elsich Manor is an historic Elizabethan property which has been renovated to an incredibly high standard by the present owners, who have been in the house for eleven years. The unique hexagonal tower is the main reason for the Grade II* listing but many rooms also boast outstanding historical characteristics including studded external doors, exposed timbers and wooden floors.

Accommodation in arranged over three floors with extensive cellars below and combines a fine range of reception rooms, seven bedrooms, four bathrooms and two shower rooms – an outstanding feature of the house is the sitting room, which is a wonderfully light room despite extensive panelling with a huge open fireplace and great double doors opening onto the drawing room. It also features a fascinating spice cupboard built into the wall where Elizabethans kept their precious spices under lock and key. The kitchen has a lovely cosy feel and an electric AGA.
