A 19th century four bedroom detached former coach house set in approximately 12.5 acres of grounds including gardens, a stable block, a barn, paddock land and a spinney. Stable Cottage was originally a coach house dating back to 1870 and was once owned by Lord Baden Powell's sister, Agnes. The property housed the coaches and horses for Stone House and the original stable block remains today, complete with tiled brick walls. Stable Cottage was extended by the current owners and is now in need of complete modernisation and remodelling. There is also potential to convert the stable block to create further living accommodation totalling 3,824 sq. ft. subject to the necessary consents. Outbuildings include a hay barn, a storage barn, carports and a garage. The 11.9 acres of land is made up of a spinney and four separate paddocks, with one of the paddocks having a natural spring pond.
