This unique Manor House was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1066. Originally an oak framed timber residence, it stood long into the 20th Century as a fine example of bygone times. There is a rich history of characters who owned and lived at the manor back to the times of the Norman Conquest. It is a tapestry of ownership closely linked to and involved in royalty, politics and high society spread over the generations.
The Manor House was remodeled in stone in 1640 and stood on farmland until it was sadly dismantled in 1969 to make way for a golf course. It now resides in Co. Clare. The glorious sandstone has been painstakingly cleaned, sized and stacked on pallets along with stone-mullioned window frames, door lintels and yards of beautiful granite cobblestones from the courtyard. From these you could build and create an individual home oozing with charm and character and steeped in history (I can’t guarantee every piece of the jigsaw is here to recreate the exact structure).
I’ve realized it’s a project I will not complete. So to reiterate you would be purchasing the total amount of sandstone and granite that I have and also the chronology of ownership involving many hours of painstaking and careful research.
This sale includes 70 pallets of cut sandstone (approx 4 sq yards per pallet), 21 pallets of granite cobbles, wall cappings approx. 200ft in length, round wall cappings approx. 100ft in length, 2 stillages of handmade bricks, window uprights approx. 12 in total, plus lots more stone not photographed or mentioned.
The photographs of the Manor House were taken in the 1960s and found in the historical archives. The photos of the stone are current, more are available on request. This amazing opportunity may never arise again. To view or ask any question please call me.
