Muston Manor, Former Churchill Family Residence, Now Available For Sale
Muston Manor, a magnificent Grade II Listed, 17th-century manor house with 3.17 acres, is now available to purchase for £2,500,000. With approximately 5,750 square feet of living space, this exceptional property has a rich historical legacy.
A cherished residence for nearly 400 years, the home has deep connections to the Churchill family, including Winston Churchill, and features the Churchill Coat of Arms above the front door. The landscaped grounds, a walled kitchen garden, a hard tennis court, a heated outdoor swimming pool and secondary accommodation, make this property a spectacular home.
A grand reception hall welcomes you into the ground floor with a drawing room, study, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast room, cloakroom, shower room, utility room, and a convenient boot room. The first floor has a total of five bedrooms, including a principal bedroom with a dressing room, a separate walk-in wardrobe, and an ensuite bathroom. The upper floor offers a versatile flatlet with two bedrooms, a sitting room, a kitchen, and a shower room, ideal for guests or extended family members.
Polly Greenway, CEO of DOMVS says ‘For those seeking a harmonious blend of history, luxury, and natural beauty, Muston Manor presents an extraordinary opportunity. The estate includes several outbuildings, including an old granary raised on staddle stones, a croquet lawn, covered log stores, a boiler room, a greenhouse, and a pool outbuilding to accompany the heated pool. The lush herbaceous borders and fruit trees including conference pear, fig, and apple trees, adorn the landscape, while the kitchen garden evokes the charm of Beatrix Potter’s Mr. MacGregor. But the show-stopper for this home is the impressive tree-lined driveway leading to the parkland setting that sets the tone for the rest of the home.’
The owners say ‘We have loved every moment of our time at Muston Manor and have felt very privileged to own a slice of history where the Churchill’s lived for many generations. During our time here, we have made every effort to retain the 17th-century charm, while incorporating modern comforts, and hope the next owners get as much enjoyment from the home as we have.’
Muston Manor is located just over five miles from the county town of Dorchester, offering the quintessential English countryside experience. The picturesque Piddle Valley, with its rolling hills, meandering streams, and abundant wildlife, is a delightful setting for nature enthusiasts and Piddlehinton Village itself is a vibrant community with a rich history dating back centuries. The annual village fête and the Thimble Inn, a well-regarded local pub, are among the highlights of the village’s social and cultural scene.
