Upper Flat One, Manorhill House, is a most impressive and spacious period conversion within a grand Victorian Manor house, tucked away in a very private and secluded position in the leafy outskirts of Selkirk. From fine stonework to intricate cornicing and high ceilings, the property exudes the character and elegance of a bygone age. Converted in the early 1960s, the property has retained many original period features dating back to when Manorhill House was built, circa 1870. These include arches to hallways, high, corniced ceilings, working wooden shutters; window seats with storage and original horsehair cushions, original wooden floors.
The property offers generous accommodation over three floors, including a large reception hall and spacious drawing room. Standing in mature gardens and grounds that extend to circa one acre, including beautiful woodland, the house has an elevated position on the edge of the pretty town of Selkirk. Upper Flat One, Manorhill House, is a light, airy flat.
Accommodation comprises: Ground floor: large, tiled, entrance porch; spacious lower reception hallway, shelved laundry room/WC, stairs to main flat.
First floor: main hall with small halls through archways; spacious, dual aspect drawing room, large kitchen/diner with pantry cupboard, storage, family bathroom/WC, spacious, dual aspect master bedroom, bedroom 2, bedroom 3 and large, shelved, walk-in cupboard; door to attic stairs.
Attic floor: a large room, with multiple power points and lights, Velux window and single-glazed window. Circa 90 square metres, this characterful space is suitable for a games room or for conversion into further bedrooms (or both). There is an original dark-room and, through a half-height opening, a large ‘den’/attic storage, with lights and power. A fantastic opportunity and adventure for a lively imagination.
Externally: from the front door, a gravel sweep leads to the driveway and the garage, which is opposite the entrance to the house. Crossing the gravel sweep, the garden is accessed by a short flight of stone steps.
Upper Flat One’s garden is 1.001 acres, comprising a beautiful woodland area, including sequoia trees, and the original tennis court, now laid to grass and bordered by box hedges, rhododendron, shrubbery and along the house side, a high stone retaining wall with a small terrace and attractive top decoration.
There are two large play sheds with windows and internal platforms. This garden is a haven of peace, privacy and birdsong, catching the sun and home to many species of birds, including owls, which can be heard hunting at night.
