Bockhampton Manor is listed Grade II* and is understood to date from Tudor times, when Thomas Blagrave, the Master of the Revels and Surveyor of the Queen's Works lived there. He was a cousin of the more famous Blagraves of Bulmershe Court in Earley and Southcote House in Reading. However, it 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.
