Gardens and Grounds
Bordean Manor House is approached via a long gravel driveway leading to the front of the property. The gardens and grounds are mainly laid to lawn, to the south and west. At the front of the house, and adjacent to the drive a bank leads down to a large area of lawn. To the west side of the house are further areas of lawn with a number of mature trees and established herbaceous shrubs. To the rear of the property there is a delightful York stone paved terrace adjacent to the principal reception rooms. The gardens offer delightful areas for recreation whilst at the same time creating a feeling of openness backing on to the countryside. We understand when the land was acquired there is a right of way in benefit of the neighbouring property for access, upon request, for the purpose of garden machinery access.
History of Bordean Manor
The oldest part of Bordean House is believed to date back to the 17th Century, having been built by Sir Roger Langrish in 1611 and is constructed of malmstone and brick with a slate roof. The estate was later used by the Navy and Civil Defense during World War II until the late 1970s whereby it was then utilised by Sue Ryder as a care home until the late 1990's. This stunning country house was then later divided, extended and remodelled to what exists today.
