The roots of Gotten on the Isle of Wight dates back to the Doomsday Book when it was listed in the very first survey of pre-industrial Britain as a working farm.
In its present state, the five-acre Grade II-listed property combines 13th, 16th and 19th-century structures, with living spaces spread around a large courtyard. These encompass the stone manor house, former cart house and medieval long barn.
A stone-walled kitchen has raw woodwork surfaces, an Aga stove, and a service hatch connecting it to the dining room with its vast inglenook fireplace. Off the dining room is a library and snug, complete with an 18th-century fireplace and pedestal, which open to the country property’s lawns.
Two bedrooms and a nursery complete this part of the house, while the drawing room – complete with medieval fireplace, bread oven and pre-industrial copper water heater – is located in the 13th-century wing, with a lofty dining room and two bedrooms above.
The milk house and cart house has been converted into private guest accommodation, with three bedrooms and a private living room and kitchen furnished in a contemporary style.
Many outdoor buildings have the potential for further conversion as guest and rental accommodation, including the enormous late-medieval long barn.
