The Manor is arguably one of the finest village houses in the South of England. Tucked away in a private position in the centre of this highly desirable and renowned village lies The Manor, in the centre of 7 acres of beautiful grounds and adjacent to the exceptionally pretty St. Michael’s Church.
Built in the late 17th Century in the Queen Anne style, the Manor is imposing, historic and grand, yet not sprawling or daunting – it is at its very core and exceptional family house. Much of the original period features remain including stunning panelled rooms, ornate and beautiful fireplaces, cornicing, original flooring, shutters on the windows and a magnificent late 18th Century open well staircase. The rooms within are superb with highlights being the magnificent entrance hall with a stunning fireplace and a historic painting of the house above, the grand drawing room and the superb Orangery which is accessed through the library and has striking views over the walled garden and taking in views of the church. In all, the house has eight bedrooms, with two self-contained apartments, one of four bedrooms and the other of two.
The Manor sits in a mature landscape of varied, historical garden spaces, including a swimming pool, encircled by pleached limes and walled gardens, an enchanting kitchen garden complete with historic greenhouses, an orchard, two paddocks, formal lawns, a tennis court and a pond. The gardens are notable for a number of ancient and impressive trees within the grounds. The walled garden which is accessed from the Orangery and leads to the swimming pool is breathtakingly beautiful and there is a private gate giving the owners of Aston Tirrold Manor access to St Michael’s Church. The tranquil and private grounds are in keeping with the stature of The Manor and provide a majestic back drop for this superb and historic house.
Additionally, there is a stable block, a paddock, garaging and a separate three bedroom detached cottage, complete with a garden.
Situated in picturesque, Oxfordshire countryside are The Astons - the collective name given to the villages of Aston Upthorpe and Aston Tirrold. The two are contiguous with thriving communities supporting a village hall, two churches, popular village pub, cricket club and post office.
