When first built, it is believed that the residence served as the farm to Whiteley Wood Hall and was later to be utilised as staff cottages for the Hall. This outstanding Manor House still exudes character and charm today, encapsulating a wonderful homely environment with some modern adaptations. The period elements of the home include stunning stained glass windows, coved ceilings with decorative mouldings, deep skirtings and attractive marble, sandstone and limestone fireplaces. Within one of the hallways there is also a dumbwaiter.
Upon arrival at the Manor, wrought iron electric gates set between stone pillars open to a sweeping driveway which is flanked by well-stocked borders and leads to one side of the home. Positioned beneath a large pergola is the primary entrance door, which opens to a vestibule that links to the entrance hall through a heavy panelled oak door with an impressive stone pediment. The three main reception rooms of the home provide ample space for everyday living and entertaining, particularly in the drawing room and formal dining room which boast elegance and grandeur. The dining kitchen provides additional space for more casual dining and is well-appointed with an Aga and high-quality integrated appliances.
Situated in the entrance hall, a wide oak staircase rises to a half landing, where one of the stained glass windows is located, and continues to the main landing on the first floor. Arranged over the first floor are five double bedrooms, four of which have modern en-suite bathrooms. There is also a family bathroom and a second floor that is home to an office and a bedroom that is currently used for storage. Throughout the home, green vistas which stretch across Mayfield Valley, Porter Valley and dense woodland can be seen.
The extensive grounds surrounding Whiteley Wood Manor offer pleasant spaces in abundance to enjoy the peaceful setting. Positioned at the front of the home and adjoining the main facade is a wonderful south-facing garden that contains a stone flagged terrace and a large rockery. Towards the top of the garden, there is also a flood-lit tennis court. A more formal garden is located at the rear and has the benefit of two additional patio areas, a sizeable lawn with established borders and trees and a duck pond to one corner. Within the driveway at the side of the home, there is plenty of off-road parking for several vehicles and a detached double garage.
The property is well placed for access to the amenities of Ringinglow and Bents Green, which incorporate shops and public houses. Schooling in the area is highly regarded and includes a range of state and private schools. From the doorstep, the surrounding landscapes can be enjoyed with public footpaths accessible within a short walk towards Forge Dam, Ringinglow, Lady Canning’s Plantation and Whirlow Brook Park.
