Sturmy House is located on the edge of the hamlet of Durley in a rural setting.


Built of brick elevations under a tile and slate roof, Sturmy House is a substantial country house arranged over three floors with cellar. Sturmy House is of 18th-century origin and was significantly enlarged in the 19th century. The property takes its name from the first warden of the Savernake Forest, Richard Esturmy, a knight who fought at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Since then Savernake Estate and forest has passed down 31 generations in an unbroken line.

The accommodation will be undergoing refurbishment and will provide for four formal reception rooms including a vaulted and beamed dining hall, a kitchen/breakfast room and a utility room on the ground floor. It is proposed that on the first floor there would be five double beds with three bathrooms. Attached is a annexe/cottage arranged over two floors and providing another sitting room, hall and large kitchen/breakfast room and two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor. The property has a Gross Internal Area extending to approximately 714.3 m2 (7,688 ft2).


The property is approached via a private tree lined drive sweeping round to the side and leading to a parking area. There is a terrace and lawned walled garden with an ornamental pond set quietly to the front of the house. To the rear is a range of stables with four loose boxes fronted by a small brick paved yard and to one side is a brick double-garage with additional storage. The grounds, which extend to approximately 4.79 acres, also includes a paddock of 3.06 acres to the east.
