Full description:

A unique Tudor style Stable House restored and renovated, incorporating Residence, Mews & Office in a tranquil and picturesque setting.

Upperwood Stable House is a truly impressive property nestled in the original Upperwood Demesne. This tastefully renovated courtyard was originally the stables for Uppercourt Manor, built in 1790 by Sir William Morris.

Upperwood Stable House is located just outside the village of Freshford and access is via a shared avenue through the farmland below Uppercourt Manor. You enter the spectacular courtyard through impressive tall limestone pillars. This formal courtyard has been sympathetically restored and the Tudor style, which was typical of the time, has been retained. The pump stands in the centre of the courtyard with the clock behind and the doors are framed with elegantly cut limestone. The Coach House doors are on opposite sides of the courtyard and a stone staircase leads you to a loft door.

This unique property comprises two separate residences, the two bedroom mews and the four bedroom main house, large office, workshop, storeroom, barn\coach house, lofts and covered parking for four cars.

The courtyard is enveloped by beautiful stone walls while the side and back of the stable yard have the most charming garden, south facing, sheltered and secluded.

Here the lawns and trees sweep around incorporating a pond, pergola, kitchen garden and dining area. The mature woodland on the hill beyond creates a perfect backdrop to this tranquil garden.

The present owners bought the property approximately 20 years ago and have restored it maintaining its character and historical charm.

The main house is entered from the courtyard with study and cloakroom to the left of the hall door, to the right is a spacious living room with original features and a modern feel. There is a large traditional kitchen with dining area, original tiles, wood burning stove and French doors leading to the garden. Off the kitchen is a boot room/utility area with a door to the garden.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a playroom. The master bedroom with original beams is ideally set to take in the view over the garden and surrounding countryside, it has two ensuite bathrooms, one with a shower and the other with a bath. The guest room also looks over the garden with an ensuite and the two further bedrooms and playroom share a family bathroom.
The generous office in one of the coach houses is light filled and ideal for hosting meetings and running a business from home. Above the office is a multipurpose loft/studio accessed via a charming stone staircase.

The Mews is accessed to the side of the courtyard and enjoys complete privacy from the main house. It is beautifully decorated and is laid out with sitting room, kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The garden area to the back is private.

In the main courtyard there is another superb coach house, workshop, stables with original features and cobbled floors and ample lofts above offering potential for refurbishment and ideal for a variety of uses.
