A private road leads to a gravel drive sweeping down to the impressive frontage of Stocken Hall and its 4 acres of communal grounds. Stocken Hall is a Grade II* listed Manor House, which was built in the seventeenth century and its imposing Georgian façade has been well maintained since the hall was renovated and converted just over sixteen years ago. There are now eleven properties within the Historic Hall and its grounds; each is unique and The Arches is the largest of the apartments created. This 3 bedroom apartment measures 2839 sq ft. It occupies an enviable position on the ground floor at the front of the main Hall with views out from the impressive south-facing façade and it retains many original features from the early era of the Hall; from magnificent high ceilings to tall casement sash windows, working shutters and many decorative wall and ceiling mouldings. This apartment also has the benefit of retaining the property's extensive cellars. The centre-piece of the property is undoubtebly the splendid drawing room, which along with the well-equipped kitchen breakfast room and three pleasant bedrooms, make it a stunning and unique home in an impressive country setting.
Located in the county of Rutland, the property is in close proximity to four charming and prosperous market towns which are also home to schools of high distinction for both boys and girls: Oakham, Stamford, Uppingham and Oundle. Conveniently situated within a short distance of the A1 leading North/South, Stocken Hall is eight miles from Stamford Rail Station which offers a direct service to Stansted Airport and to London Kings Cross in 45 minutes via Peterborough. The property is also within a short drive to a selection of gastro pubs including the Olive Branch at Clipsham and Hambleton Hall which are both Michelin star restaurants; as well as outdoor pursuits including Rutland Water, famed for cycling paths and outdoor sports, and the Greetham Valley Golf Course is nearby, too.
The property's main front door, with intercom system, opens into a large, high entrance hall, off which is the internal private entrance to The Arches. This opens into the Drawing room.
