This Grade II listed manor has more than meets the eye
A Grade II listed manor house standing in just over 16 acres four miles from Buntingford with a medieval motte and bailey castle in the grounds is on the market. In 1944 the man-made mound escaped relatively unscathed when an American bomber flew into it.
Anstey Hall is available as a whole for £2.85m or in three lots. Lot one (£1.6m) constitutes the six bedroom main house and five acres of formal gardens including the site of the moated Norman castle. The house, refurbished and updated by the current owners, dates from the 1600s. Lot two (£950,000) is three cottages and a first floor flat in about a third of an acre. Lot three (£300,000) is the stables, all weather menage, agricultural building converted for horses and several post and rail paddocks, adding up to almost 11 acres behind the formal gardens.
