A breathtaking Grade II listed manor house in South Wales – which you may recognise from BBC1's Sherlock and Doctor Who – has been renovated to its former glory and is now on the market.
The Fields Manor, on Fields Park Road in Newport, was built around 1850 and spent two decades in a dilapidated state before property developers intervened to restore it.
The property is so atmospheric and steeped in history that it provided the filming location for Doctor Who as the old, uninhabited house Wester Drumlins – which was visited by former Doctor David Tennant. It was also the backdrop for a more recent episode Knock Knock with Peter Capaldi.
Sherlock fans may remember the manor from series two, episode A Scandal In Belgravia, starring Lara Pulver as dominatrix Irene Adler.
Fields Manor is now on the market through estate agents Mr and Mrs Clarke, maintaining many of its beautiful original features and boasting 20 rooms. It has a modern fitted kitchen, a large double garage, and a well-maintained mature garden.
There are two cellar rooms which could be turned into a cinema, gym or games room. There is an additional brick-vaulted room for a potential wine cellar. Another room provides a huge utility space with double arched doors leading up and out to the garden.
The dining area is flooded with natural light from full height bi-fold doors. The drawing room overlooks the garden and there's even a stunning tropical orangery.
The reception hall retains the original stone staircase with iron balustrade which takes you up to the first-floor landing. The estate agents say this is an outstanding spot where breathtaking stained glass windows illuminate the space.
The second floor has three further bedrooms and another family bathroom. One of the bedrooms has its own private corridor and modern en-suite, while another comes with an outside terrace, large enough for a hot tub.
The top of the tower has high vaulted ceiling and far-reaching views, which could make a great study, music room or library.
Outside, the maintained grounds are replete with beautiful mature trees including a magnificent ancient oak - believed to be the oldest in the area. There is also a double garage and studio room, newly built yet in keeping and style of the main residence, with underfloor heating and complete with utility.
