Description

Stable House is an outstanding property. Situated within a local
Conservation Area, it was originally the stable block to the nearby Puddington Hall. With the help of Donald Insall architects, who specialise in historic buildings, the property has been extended to provide a well proportioned family house. It has also undergone a scheme of meticulous renovation and modernisation culminating in a magnificent interior with classical wooden panelling and joinery using the finest materials and techniques.

The house is approached via a private drive from the lane and gates open into a parking and a large paved courtyard at the front of the house. The oak front door sits beneath a porch and opens into an exceptional reception hall with a tiled floor, a central staircase and gallery above. To one end is a fireplace and seating area.

The drawing room is an elegant room with a fire with a stone chimney piece, doors and windows with ornate architraves.

Double doors lead into a less formal garden room with a tiled floor and French doors onto a terrace. At the heart of the house is a wonderful panelled library and an impressive formal dining room. The kitchen has a 4 oven Aga and an excellent range of fitted storage units. Off the kitchen is a sitting room and a conservatory.

Two staircases serve the first floor and would be possible to provide a self contained flat with an independent access. The current arrangement is with a master bedroom suite, 4 further bedrooms and 3 further bathrooms. A half landing on the main staircase leads out to a raised and covered terrace used for outside dining with views over the gardens.

To the side of the house is a substantial garage/workshop with two pairs of timber garage doors. At the rear is a pretty dovecot currently used for garden storage. The house sits in delightful gardens and grounds. High beech formal hedging provides garden rooms and has previously enclosed a croquet lawn. A part walled with traditional greenhouse provides an ideal space for a kitchen garden. The extensive lawns merge with an area to the far side of the property with a separate access which could be fenced to provide grazing for a pony.

The total area is about 2 acres.
