Pevsners says ‘A beautiful later C17 stone house with slightly recessed centre and two gables. All windows of the cross type and already of classical proportions. String courses running through instead of hood-moulds. They only survive in the gables.’
The house has had an interesting history and information from the Parish records tells us that it was originally the home of Sir Richard Hoby who died in 1616. In the early 1900’s it was restored as an orphanage for small boys by the Rev J L Lopes. In the early 1940’s it was used as a hospital for injured servicemen.
The house has been known by several different names over the years. Firstly as the `Old Stone House’, then `Montpellier’, it was then called St Christopher’s when it was the orphanage and in more recent times ‘Badsey Hall’.
The house is constructed of dressed Cotswold stone to the front elevation with two high gables with coping stones and stone balls on top and blue lias stone and Cotswold stone mullions and quoins to the rear. The roof to the front is Cotswold stone tiles with clay tiles to the rear and sides. Most of the windows are tall with stone mullions and leaded lights. A noteworthy feature is some of the small panes of glass in the Sitting Room which have been etched with children’s names from when it was used as a schoolroom.
The current owners have carried out a sympathetic improvement program which includes a bespoke kitchen with marble worktops and under floor heating, fine quality bathrooms with extensive use of marble and powerful central heating and hot water systems. The property enjoys a good sized private garden and has a games room which could also be used as a studio, workshop or additional garage.
