Property Description

Full description

Stretton House is a remarkable, skilfully converted Grade II Listed family home of considerable character. Built in 1685 and retaining much of the original character and grandeur of the hall with high ceilings, elegant accommodation, and a superb cantilevered original staircase, with accommodation arranged over four floors. The Stretton Hall development is conveniently located on the borders of Oadby and Great Glen; it is approached through a prestigious development, sympathetically designed, leaving a hall set within its own landscaped grounds. Stretton House enjoys its own private grounds including lawns, a small woodland and further benefits from delightful views over adjacent parkland. The conversion was undertaken by Messrs Hazelwood Plc, specialists in the conversion of period property and has been upgraded by subsequent owners with quality appointments and stylish decoration. High amongst the property's many features are wide planked oak boarded flooring, Georgian sash windows refurbished with Ventrolla at great expense by the current owners, the original 1685 cantilevered staircase, a restored dumbwaiter to three floors, timber shutters to many of the windows and architectural detail including plaster cornicing. Both Great Glen and Oadby village centres offer a wide range of amenities catering for most day-to-day needs including leisure, recreational and shopping facilities and is extremely well served by popular schooling in the state and public sectors.
