An impressive Grade II Listed country house in a beautiful setting with exceptional gardens and c11.15 acres in total.


The Manor House is a striking and elegant Grade II listed country house of brick elevations with stone dressings under a stone slate roof and relieved by stone mullioned windows with timber paned casements. Enjoying a spectacular location on the edge of the village and benefitting from far reaching views over the surrounding countryside, the house was built in c1840 and remodelled in c1880, creating a truly wonderful family home.

The principal reception rooms lead from the welcoming wood panelled entrance hall, befitting of a house of this grandeur. These include the large, well-proportioned drawing room with fireplace and wood burning stove, dining room, study/sitting room and billiards room. Doors lead from the dining room and billiard room into an inner hallway, which in turn takes you through into the kitchen/breakfast room, a spacious room with lovely views out over the gardens.

The larder and boot room complete the ground floor accommodation and steps lead down from the inner hallway to a large and impressive wine cellar.

The sweeping staircase leads to the landing on the first floor. The nine bedroom, two bathroom layout arranged over the first and second floors makes for comfortable family living. The substantial principal bedroom, with plentiful built in wardrobes, enjoys wonderful westerly views out over the garden and beyond. Given the wealth of space on offer, the property provides flexible accommodation throughout and some bedrooms could easily be converted into home offices and/or a children's playroom, should that be preferred.

The property has enormous potential to be enhanced and updated subject to the necessary planning permissions.


The Manor House is approached through double gates leading to a large, cobbled parking area with space for a multitude of vehicles. There is a four bay car port and a fabulous old Coach House, which has the potential to be converted into further accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

The house enjoys a delightful mature garden and grounds and is set in approximately 11.15 acres. The garden is mainly laid to lawn interspersed with pathways and with an array of mature trees and shrubs. The area by the lake is the perfect place to relax and unwind. There are also many wonderful spots in this expansive garden from where you can enjoy the far-reaching views.


The Manor House is situated on the edge of the pretty Wiltshire village of Clyffe Pypard. The house sits in a prominent position with panoramic and open views across the dramatic landscape and stunning countryside. Clyffe Pypard is set below a wooded part of the hill known as Clyffe Hanging and has a parish church.

The next steps...

Before making an offer on a property you will want to consider your financial situation, your income and outgoings.

Will you finance the purchase of your next property from the sale of an existing property which can put you in a chain, arrange a mortgage through your bank or buy the property outright.
To help you finance your next property purchase, we have a long established relationship with an independent mortgage broker who can discuss your situation with you.

Remember that having a 'mortgage decision in principle' can make you a more attractive buyer when you make an offer on a property. Contact our mortgage advisers for free, no obligation and impartial advice.
Some advantages of a broker are:

  • They do all the legwork for you, working on your behalf with the lender
  • They compare wholesale mortgage rates from a large number of banks and lenders all at once
  • Wholesale interest rates can be lower than retail (bank branch) interest rates
  • You get more loan options because they work with numerous banks and lenders
  • Brokers can finance tricky deals because of their knowledge and various lending partners
  • Are typically easier to get in contact with, less bureaucratic.

However with your bank maybe able to:

  • Build off existing relationship (discounts if you have a checking/saving account)
  • You may already know the banker who will handle your mortgage
  • Perhaps more trustworthy, more accountable than a smaller shop
  • Lower interest rates in some cases
  • Ability to add mortgage to existing banking profile and make automatic payments from linked account.

When it comes to making an offer on a property a bit of negotiation is to be expected, however don't offer so little that you end up in a lengthy negotiation process, as you might lose the property altogether if someone else makes a higher bid.
