Building record MDR10908 - Manor Farm, Coton In The Elms
Type and Period (1)
- FARMHOUSE (Georgian - 1770 AD? to 1790 AD?)
Manor Farm must be one of the finest and best-built farmhouses of its size, age and class in the district. It seems to have two main phases of construction. The front part and the right hand gabled projection at the rear are part of the original house, T-shaped on plan, perhaps of c. 1780. The left hand rear gable and the single storey leanto across the back of the house are an addition, apparently all built at once, of perhaps c. 1810-1820, replacing the earlier service wing. The farm was sold off by the Catton Estate in 1930, and after it had stood empty was bought in 1984 and sensitively restored. (1)
