The beautiful, converted homes at Hampton Manor are available on the open market but residency is restricted to the over 16s.
The stately Victorian building, formerly a hotel, has been carefully restored and converted and nine new homes have been built within the grounds to create 24 spacious, luxurious two and three-bedroom apartments, the majority with a terrace, balcony, private garden or roof garden – or a combination of these.
The panoramic views are exception and the setting is spectacular, with landscaped gardens surrounded by wooded countryside. One of the benefits of owning a home at Hampton Manor is the estate management service. An Estate Manager is on hand to handle the day-to-day administration, the gardening of both private gardens and the landscaped setting and to keep an eye on properties whilst owners are away.
The Estate Manager at Hampton Manor is Wayne Madeley, who accepted the post in March and is really enjoying his job.
“I feel so privileged to be working at Hampton Manor,” says Wayne. “The estate is stunningly beautiful, so quiet and peaceful – you can hear the birds singing – and it has a real sense of history. It’s a wonderful place to work and I love my job because I am dealing with people which I enjoy - and I get to work outside.”
“We have a team of gardeners to handle the professional gardening work, including mowing the lawns, but every day I spend time sweeping and cleaning the pathways and the car park and checking on the properties here. There’s an abundance of trees at Hampton Manor and it’s important to keep the leaves swept up and to maintain the private and roof top gardens. I like the estate to look kept and tidy, as much as mother nature will allow.”

“The people who live here are just wonderful. I make a point of trying to see everyone –some homeowners here are still working but some are retired and it’s nice to be able to chat with them. It’s so important for our residents to have a friendly manager around. One of the key elements of my job is being on hand to help those who live here enjoy a relaxed lifestyle.”
“We are delighted that Wayne has joined the team at Hampton Manor,” comments Holly Foreman, Sales Director for Beechcroft. “He is a perfect example of what an Estate Manager should be. He works hard and is unfailingly kind, helpful and supportive. He is a real asset to the development.”
For anyone wishing to join the small, friendly community at Hampton Manor, two apartments are currently available. A two-bedroom ground floor apartment, priced at £540,000, features a lovely private roof garden and terrace. The kitchen leads into the sunroom and the spacious drawing room opens onto the private terrace. A two-bedroom apartment on the second floor, priced at £700,000, provides an abundance of generously proportioned living space and a Juliet balcony overlooking the beautifully landscaped communal gardens. With a drawing room, dual-aspect dining hall and triple aspect kitchen, this apartment is light and airy with wonderful views.
