Bockhampton Manor is listed Grade II* and is understood to date from Tudor times, when it seems to have been rented out to the Lambourn branch of the well-known Blagrave family. Thomas Blagrave purchased the manor in 1568 but it passed out of the family when he died with only two surviving daughters as his heiresses in 1579. The house, however, is principally a William and Mary house and was subject to further alterations in the 18th Century. The varying ages of the property are reflected in the different architectural styles, with part flint elevations and mullion windows with leaded lights. The remainder of the property is mainly constructed of brick with attractive sash windows, some with locking shutters.
Bockhampton Manor is a private residence and was last offered for sale by Knight Frank in August 2003.
