Is there anything more idyllic than a beautiful manor house nestled away in the English countryside? We think not, hence why we have such an extensive range of stunning country homes situated in some of the UK’s most beautiful rural counties. From period manors dating back to the Victorian and Georgian era’s with interiors to match to a slightly more modern take on the luxury English country manor, we have every type of country home you’ll need. All of our country properties are set within huge expanses of land and often accompanied by whimsical and romantic landscaped gardens.
However it appears we aren’t the only ones obsessed with the English Country House. House and Garden magazine have written an essay in an ode to the country home style, claiming that out of all the styles of decoration that have flourished over the past 50 years, none have been quite as enduring as that associated with the English country house. But why? According to House and Garden this is as a result of the decorative characteristics that instantly recognizable including; antique furniture, a large sofa littered with oversized cushions, antique textiles, table lamps, both fresh flowers and faux in print and paintings. Lastly, and potentially the most important accessory of all to complete the look, a couple of dogs.
Another reason why the country house works so well is down to its flexibility. The style embraces wear and tear and an element of playfulness is definitely encouraged. The interior style of country homes is always evolving, and can be adapted to suit the interpretation of any designer or home owner, which is certainly echoed throughout our diverse range of properties within this section.
For example, our more contemporary country homes stay away from draped tables, knick-knacks and floral prints by opting for matte walls, stripes, exposed floorboards and minimal clutter.
