Seller Insight Set on the edge of the village and surrounded by countryside, we immediately fell in love with the Jacobean style frontage and characterful charm of Etton Manor,” say the vendors. “Etton Manor is full of original features throughout, including beams and 3 huge fireplaces in the living rooms downstairs. The Games Room retains the original flagstone flooring and we have enjoyed plenty of happy times in here, playing table tennis and hosting snooker tournaments and I think this would be our son’s preferred room of choice. One of my favourite rooms has to be the loft room. It has a lovely wooden floor with views looking out over the open countryside and it has a wonderful feel about it.” “We often pop into the village pub after a long dog walk and there are numerous cycling routes and walking opportunities right on our doorstep. We like to use the nearby Leisure Centre to swim, play squash and badminton and we enjoy walking around Rutland Water and Ferry Meadows. The local pub hosts a number of community events, including small car rallies, charity bike rides and a big firework display.” “The garden is of a very manageable size and wraps around the house. We look out over open countryside and there are plenty of seating areas around the garden to make the most of the sun and the shade. We’re treated to some spectacular sunsets and we like to spend an evening relaxing in the jacuzzi and looking out over the beautifully lit church. Our daughter celebrated her 30th birthday with a big BBQ in the garden and we often play badminton on the lawn. We enjoy an annual harvest from the pear, plum and cherry trees and share the garden with an abundance of wildlife, including pheasants and hedgehogs.” “The kitchen looks out onto the garden and has lots of windows, so it is always light and bright. Friends and family tend to congregate in here and enjoy the warmth from the AGA style oven.” “We’ve loved living in this characterful house which affords us plenty of space, peace and tranquility.” “The house comes into its own at Christmas and New Year and our friends and family can easily stay over as there is plenty of room. We’ve enjoyed lots of good times here.” “We’ll miss the space and the historical character of Etton Manor but the time has come to downsize and put the next chapter of our lives into effect.”* * These comments are the personal views of the current owner and are included as an insight into life at the property.
