Property Description

HISTORY
Sevenhampton Manor is a substantial and stunning Grade II listed gabled country house dating from at least the 17th century, potentially mid-16th
Features include mullioned and transomed windows and continuous drip moulds, largely built some years after the original owner, Anthony Lawrence, consolidated his family's ownership of the Manor of Sevenhampton in 1610
The Manor was depicted by Kip for Atkyns' Ancient and Present State of Glostershire in 1712, being taxed on seven hearths in 1672. Kip's engraving provides some evidence of the original appearance of the house, which was altered in the mid-18th century when a new staircase was built between the wings on the east front
In the 1830s, the west front had a porch and the south and west sides had windows with arched lights, probably reflecting an early 19th century remodeling. The house was let in the mid-19th century, and when W.L. Lawrence moved back c. 1865, it was very extensively restored
The fenestration of the west and south fronts was altered again and a gabled porch and a new north service range were built, with the internal panelling being all renewed. After 1889 the house was again let, and many of the fittings were removed to Sandywell Park. The Lawrences retained the house until c.1930, when it was one of the last parts of the Sandywell and Whittington estates to be sold by Whynnefrede Evans-Lawrence
The new owner, E.D. Horsfall, added a south-west wing in the 1930s, but this and many features of the main building were destroyed by fire in c.1960
It was restored and converted into three houses by Blair & Curd of Chipping Sodbury for Sq.Ldr. D.R. Parkinson in 1964-65.

THE PROPERTY
The current owners purchased Sevenhampton Manor and 2 Sevenhampton Manor in 1979 and lived in them as one. In about 2007/8 they rebuilt the burnt-down ruins of the south wing and split off 2 Sevenhampton Manor which is now tenanted and is available to purchase under separate negotiation
3 Sevenhampton Manor is in separate ownership
The overall accommodation is highly impressive throughout, with a wealth of original period features, stretching over three floors, as well as a large cellar
The beautiful oak front door with cast-iron decorative fastenings leads through into the gabled stone-built porchway with internal oak double doors with oak panelled surrounds connecting to the impressive hall
The hall has mainly period features such as grand arches, ornate decorative coving, an imposing fireplace with stone surround and hearth, herringbone oak-wooden flooring and an impressive staircase
Spacious sitting room with ornate decorative coving, original fireplace with decorative wooden surround, stone inserts and hearth. Two elegant floor-to-ceiling display cabinets and two tall stone-mullion windows with a south-westerly aspect overlooking the drive and lawns
Stunning triple-aspect drawing room measuring approximately 33 feet in length with decorative cornices and ceiling roses, window seats and oak flooring. This magnificent room could become a beautiful kitchen family room
Off the drawing room is the delightful garden room with patterned tiled flooring, part-exposed stone walling and doors out to the charming gardens
The dining room is exceptionally striking, with floor-to-ceiling oak panelling throughout, stone-mullion windows and a beautiful stone fireplace with an open fire – it has a delightful grandeur atmosphere
Traditional kitchen breakfast room providing a good range of pine wall and base cupboards with built-in pantry cupboard, with the whole in need of modernisation. Enjoys a high ceiling, charming historical features including beams, the now blocked-up fireplace and a characterful bread oven. There is a door to the outside at the rear of the property
Cloakroom with a separate loo with beautiful turquoise and blue tiling
To the first floor, the principal bedroom enjoys a south-westerly aspect and measures approximately 24 feet in length with an attractive open fireplace with cast-iron inserts and wooden surround, ceiling rose, two tall windows, and a narrow-panelled door connecting to a dressing room, which may be possible to convert into an en-suite bathroom
Bedroom two is a large room in the older part of the property, with a large north-easterly window which has wonderful views and benefits from the morning sun
Bedrooms three and four are both generous doubles with a modern bathroom, with a walk-in shower and bath, in-between them. They are both dual aspect, enjoying different aspects of views and the gardens
Tucked off the hall is a charming, Tudor-feeling study with a low gabled roof and wonderful views over the church and valley beyond
At the end of the landing is a traditional dated bathroom with a separate cloakroom and a laundry room with a back staircase to the second floor
On the second floor, is bedroom five. It is a beautiful large light room with a tall vaulted ceiling and a dressing room off. The owners used this as a study and a hobby room. It is a commanding room with fabulous views and could suit many uses from a principal bedroom suite to a billiard room
There are two further large rooms, which could be bedrooms six and seven and two small rooms, one of which is the old “train room” which housed the family train set. They offer wonderful flexible additional space to be used as suites
There is a historic cellar. Stone steps lead down off the hall to a beautifully curved passageway which leads to the cellar with standing height for most, a delightful worn flagstone floor and a historic door behind which is now blocked – which would have likely been steps leading up into 2 Sevenhampton Manor
