Stoke Hammond continued
The village was first recorded in the Domesday Book as Stoche: a common place name in England denoting a Saxon church or place of worship. The suffix Hammond, added later, refers to the family who owned the estate at the time of the Domesday survey. Hamon Brito, son of Mainfelin Brito, was the owner of the manor of Stoke in the 12th century. The manor later passed into the ownership of the Duke of Norfolk and the family still owned it at the end of the Victorian era. The Disney family, apparently related to the animator Walt Disney, was also at one time an influential local family. The parish church is dedicated to St Luke and there is also a Methodist Chapel, built in 1927. It is one of the 51 so-called Thankful Villages which lost no men in the First World War.
Further Bedrooms and Bathroom
The guest suite has fitted pine wardrobes and an en suite with a walk-in shower cubicle, white wash basin and white Sanitan WC. There are two further double bedrooms to the front of the property, both with a dual aspect and fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom is accessed through a lobby which has built-in store cupboards and stairs leading to the second floor. The bathroom is fitted with a white corner bath, a walk-in corner shower, a wash basin, and a WC.
The attic space is fully boarded with exposed rafters and is divided into five rooms. There are Velux windows fitted to the internal sides of the central roof valley so they are not visible from ground level. The rooms could provide additional accommodation subject to planning and listed building consent. It is believed that the attics were once used as staff accommodation but ceased being used as such when the window tax necessitated the removal of the dormer windows (the outlines of which can still be seen).
The property is approached via remote controlled wrought iron gates and a tree lined gravel drive with period street lamps, a lawned area to the north side and a small fenced paddock to the south side. The drive extends around to the rear of the property giving access to the garages and providing space for parking. There is a detached double garage with two remote controlled up and over doors, work benches and a personal door. A further detached double garage/barn has a single up and over door and is adjacent to the swimming pool. There are further lawned areas to the south and east aspects, mature and semi mature specimen trees throughout the grounds, flower and shrub borders, an orchard and a fenced fruit and vegetable patch.
The tiled outdoor swimming pool is in its own part walled garden and has a paved surround. There is a brick built pool room with French doors, a walk-in shower, a two piece cloakroom, and a separate plant room with filters, an automatic chemical control system and a dedicated oil fired boiler.
