Shepperton requires a new Lord of the Manor
Discover A Magical Riverside Estate
Curchods have been honoured with finding the next Lord of the Manor of Shepperton, as this ancient title is to be sold with one of the village's finest riverside houses.
A manorial lordship is not connected to the British honours system, but rather the feudal system dating back to medieval times. The lordship of the manor is simply the title by which the lord of the manor is known. In many cases the title may no longer have any land or rights attached to it.
Because of its origin and lack of physical substance, it is known as an 'incorporeal hereditament'. This means 'an interest having no physical existence'. However, the title can be officially used, including being noted in a British passport through an official observation worded 'The Holder Is The Lord Of The Manor Of.........'
Whilst it is not a title of nobility and today does not carry any formal duties or obligations, it will elevate the holder to a status that can be a real door-opener in business, as well as being a fascinating talking point with dinner guests, having secured the best table in the restaurant! Just imagine the fun that could be had, and Shepperton's Lord will be in good company, as the neighbouring Lord is Russell Grant, the astrologer and media personality, who is The Lord of the Manor of Ashford.
Historically, the Lord of the Manor of Shepperton had to provide a gaol. Today, as a humourous nod to tradition, within the grounds of the house is a medieval style arched door set into a mock gaol wall that cleverly disguises a garden store.
"With its view over the Thames and the open land beyond, as well as its 3 acre grounds, this is a very special home indeed"
This spectacular home commands a stunning position with southerly views over a broad stretch of the River Thames and open countryside beyond. The Georgian influenced design with its symmetrical architecture, period features and adaptable accommodation was constructed in 2002, cleverly blending the elegance associated with the period with all of the comforts of modern building practice. In addition, there is a detached oak framed guest annexe, a conservatory and outbuildings.
The grounds extend to approximately 3 acres, enclosed by Victorian railings with areas of meadow, a delightful riverside garden stretching down to the Tow Path, and 130ft of private river frontage complete with pontoon and landing stage moorings.
