Full description

Tenure: Freehold


A superb Listed Grade II four bedroom property forming part of the elegant and historic 15th Century Stinsford House.

Much is known about the evolution of Stinsford House and the history that surrounds it, with most dramatic changes taking place in the 1700's. Formerly the home to the daughter of the First Earl of Ilchester, and more latterly a film star's home and a boys' boarding school, the house was finally split and converted in the late 1990's.

Approached through rather grand, stone-pillars and gravel driveway, the entrance to number 5 can be found up a small rise of carriage steps. The property is South facing, and built of stone under a slate roof. It is believed to have been part of the former ballroom which accounts for the high ceilings on the ground floor, and the dramatic Georgian floor-to-ceiling sash windows.

On the ground floor, the kitchen / breakfast room with large sash window and windowseat looks on to the private garden and communal grounds beyond. The kitchen is well equipped with fitted units. The generous-sized sitting room, with American oak panelling, hamstone fireplace, and two commanding sash windows adjoins a convenient recess area presently being used as a study.

The stairs lead up to the first floor where you will find a bathroom with bath, overhead shower, WC and sink. The two double bedrooms are both south facing and offer unrA superb Listed Grade II four bedroom property forming part of the elegant and historic 15th Century Stinsford House.ivalled views.
