A fabulous and historic Grade 2 listed Manor House with 5 bedrooms, outbuildings, and about 2.4 acres, located close to the centre of the village.

The Old Manor is a beautiful and historic Grade 2 listed village house which has been extensively restored and renovated over recent years. The property can trace its origins back to Domesday and the Norman conquest when the land was granted to the first of a succession of noble owners who held it until the early 1800's. The present house dates from the 16th century with additions in the 17th, alterations in the 18th, and modernisation in the 20th and 21st centuries. In around 1914, soldiers were billeted in the property and by 1939, it had become a well-regarded small country hotel.
Today, it is a family home of enormous character and charm. A superb and atmospheric reception hall/snug features a large inglenook fireplace and an equally notable wide oak staircase. There are three principal reception rooms on the ground floor and a beautifully fitted kitchen/breakfast room with plenty of space for informal dining. The very large adjoining utility and boot-room is particularly well suited to accommodate dogs and for storing all the outdoor clothing. Upstairs there are five beautifully individual double bedrooms; two with ensuite bath/shower room, and there is an equally luxurious and well-appointed family shower room. All rooms have a lovely outlook over the gardens which surround the house on three sides.

Outside
Set back and secluded behind an ancient stone wall, The Old Manor is approached over a stone paved drive leading to a parking and turning space beside the barn and stables. The drive continues to provide vehicular access to the stables and paddocks.
The landscaped gardens surround the house with a variety of well-maintained hedges and planted flower beds, extensive level lawns, numerous mature specimen trees, and an ornamental pond. A sheltered paved terrace is easily accessed from the house and is a perfect sun-trap, and a great place for outdoor dining.

Beyond the lawns a tall evergreen hedge surrounds and provides total privacy for the heated outdoor swimming pool with its paved surround, sun-deck terrace and pool house. From here a path leads through to the hard tennis court.

The main outbuilding is a useful addition with a spacious office or store, which could be utilised as a gym or studio for example. The building extends to incorporate stabling with two loose boxes, a tack room and an open-bay car-port/hay store.

Beyond the formal gardens the remainder of the grounds comprise fenced paddocks. In all about 2.4 acres.

Situation
Surrounded by its own extensive grounds, The Old Manor is located in the village of Witley, with its church, public houses and convenience shops for daily needs. Witley has a mainline station which provides regular commuter services to London Waterloo, taking from about 55 minutes. Godalming is within 4 miles and provides an excellent range of shops, supermarkets, a selection of restaurants, and a mainline station. Guildford and Haslemere, also nearby, provide further amenities. The A283 connects with the A3 at Milford which in turn joins the M25 at Wisley for easy access to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports. By road, central London is within 40 miles. Schools in the area include King Edward's, Aldro, Charterhouse, Priorsfield, St Hilary's, St Catherine's, Cranleigh, The Royal Grammar School and The High School for Girls in Guildford, and The University of Surrey. The surrounding countryside is easily accessible and provides miles of footpaths and bridleways through some of the county's most scenic areas of outstanding natural beauty.
