Nestled in approximately 24.5 acres of lush Warwickshire countryside, well away from busy roads but conveniently located for all major transport networks, Kingston Manor represents a rare opportunity to invest in an historical property with enormous potential. Included are two well stocked fishing lakes extending in total to nearly 10 acres and an attractive deciduous spinney of some 4.5 acres known as Ewe Field Coppice.

The Manor itself, with its mellow stonework and unique architectural features, can hardly be described as a blank canvas but it does offer a variety of options for improvement and further development which will appeal to those seeking an exceptional family home.

Chesterton - Located six miles to the southeast of Warwick and Royal Leamington Spa, and within a short distance of Junctions 12 (Gaydon) and 15 (Longbridge Island) of the M40, Chesterton is a tiny agricultural parish set in rolling countryside.

Its Grade I Listed windmill, a striking landmark, stands on a hilltop overlooking the equally famous Fosse Way, a Roman road which originally stretched from Exeter to Lincoln.

Kingston Manor - Set in its own delightful grounds about half a mile from the 11th Century church of St. Giles, the original part of the Manor is an attractive and substantial residence with mullioned windows, dating back in parts to the 16th Century.
Adjoining it is a more modern building erected to provide garaging facilities and having a self-contained two bedroom apartment above.


The property is approached along a private roadway and bordered by stone and brick walls with a simple gateway at the entrance.

The generous forecourt provides parking for several vehicles and access to the twin double garages which are fitted with roller doors.

The vestibule which links the main house to the garage block leads into a welcoming hallway and through to the extensive ground floor accommodation.

The kitchen and three large reception rooms provide plenty of space for family activities and for entertaining; the main sitting room benefits from sliding glass doors which frame pretty views over the gardens, and a wide staircase which provides additional light as well as access to the first floor.

A more traditional living room on the opposite side of the hallway could also be used as an impressive study or library, having large mullioned windows and stunning views over the extensive grounds and lakes beyond.

The 'piece de resistance', however, must surely be the imposing double height drawing room which extends the full width of the building, boasting stone walls and a grand inglenook fireplace.

At one end of the room is a large vaulted gallery which is accessed from the first floor landing and could serve as a characterful bedroom.

To the first floor, three further bedrooms, each a good sized double and each with its own en suite, enjoy glorious views over the surrounding gardens. The master bedroom also benefits from an additional walk in wardrobe.

One of the many features of Kingston Manor is that it has its own spring water supply which runs through the gardens to the chain of lakes which lie to the north and south of the buildings.

The gardens which surround the Manor are mainly laid to lawn, fringed with a variety of mature trees and borders which create a charming backdrop. There is a paved terrace, a pretty arched gateway and a delightful little stone pavilion, which could lend itself to a variety of uses, overlooking the site of an old grass tennis court.

The lakes, which provide almost 10 acres of water, are encircled by a variety of mature trees creating beautiful sylvan walks with natural arches and are easily accessible from the house. This amenity provides for a range of recreational activities including boating and fishing. The lakes are well stocked with a variety of coarse fish.

At the end of the northern path a bridge crosses a small stream and the path continues into Ewe Field Coppice, an exquisite bluebell wood extending to almost 4.5 acres.

The unspoiled habitat nurtures a range of wildlife and this exquisite setting makes Kingston Manor a unique and very special property.
