West Stowell House is believed to date from the 18th Century and probably earlier. Extended in the 1930s by the distinguished diplomat, Sir Eric Phipps, the house and outbuildings were converted into eight houses in 1977. West Stowell Place forms part of the main house and is one of the principal divisions of the building. The property is of brick elevations edged by a parapeted facade, under a pitched roof and is arranged in part over three storeys with a single storey addition to one side.

The accommodation is well presented and takes full advantage of the high ceilings, sash windows and other period features. The reception rooms are generously proportioned and lead to the later addition of the single storey kitchen, utility room and integral garage. The front door with ornate fantail light above leads to the hexagonal Entrance Hall with tiled floor and a range of display and storage cabinets and to the Cloakroom with wc and hand basin. To one side lies the Library which is carpeted with a range of book shelves, an open gas fire in addition to a walk in secure storage cupboard and stairs to first floor. On the other side lies the double aspect Sitting Room carpeted with window seats looking out over the garden, open fireplace with ornate timber surround. The Dining Room which is carpeted with a serving hatch, leads to the Kitchen/Breakfast Room with wood effect flooring, a range of wall and floor units with sink, built in double oven and grill, 4 ring halogen hob and extractor, integral fridge freezer, space and plumbing for dishwasher. At one end is a built-in seating and breakfast area with a back door to the garden. The spacious Utility Room is approached from the dining room and has a range of wall and floor storage units, space and plumbing for a washing machine/dryer a door leads on to the Integral Double Garage - with electric roller doors.

On the first floor there are two large Double Bedrooms carpeted, with built in wardrobes, a hand basin, lovely views to the south and a recently upgraded Shower Room with stone tiled floor, hand basin, wc and double shower cubicle.
