A stately Manor House in Oxfordshire with an historic icehouse in the garden

Deddington Manor is a grand yet comfortable home in the popular Oxfordshire town of Deddington, with fantastic walled gardens, eight bedrooms and 14 1/2 acres to its name.

After a summertime lunch in the dining room at Deddington Manor, the views through an open door through sunny gardens to a verdant lime avenue would surely inspire a wander, not only to play tennis lazily by the limes, but to admire the historic walled garden, with its icehouse, glasshouse and neat sections of fruit trees and vegetables.

Built in the latter part of the 18th century using a local golden coloured iron stone, the stately Manor House is currently on the market via Knight Frank at a guide price of £2.95 million. 

The house itself, with its elegant bay windows, is of deep-honey-hued local ironstone and Grade II listed with six/seven bedrooms (one en suite) plus two in the guest annexe and five reception rooms.

The coachhouse courtyard with its garage, tack room, stables and various store rooms and lofts is particularly useful and the 14½ acres also include colourful rose beds, formal lawns, a copse and two spring-fed ponds. Deddington is about six miles from Banbury.
