Shapwick Manor is being sold as Lot 1 of the former Shapwick School. The land included with Shapwick Manor is highlighted in pink on the plan.
Shapwick Manor is the Grade II* Listed manor house in this pretty North Somerset village. The manor has been used as the main school house for Shapwick School which is now no longer operating. Inside the manor there are some excellent reception rooms and if converted back into a residential house, it would make for a statement house in the village. At present there are 25 rooms which could be reconfigured into reception rooms or bedrooms, but it is likely rooms will be joined together or changed into bathrooms upstairs depending on the required use and subject to all the relevant permissions. The residential development would make for an exciting venture. The total size is approximately 11,684 sq. ft. / 1085 sq. m.
The total number of bedrooms, reception rooms and bathrooms would depend on the final layout of the redevelopment.
