Stoke Court dates chiefly from the 17th century with later additions, in both the 18th and 19th centuries and is built of squared and coursed blue lias stone elevations with attractive ham stone mullion windows and doors under slated roofs. The property is Grade II Listed and has retained a number of period details that one would expect in a house of its age.
In brief the house comprises of a number of well proportioned and decorated reception rooms, a drawing room, dining room, front lobby and study room. The drawing room is particularly magnificent with a cross beam ceiling and period fireplace with French doors out onto the terrace.
In more recent years a well-designed extension was added and so the dining room now leads through to an additional reception room, a utility room as well as a vaulted kitchen/breakfast room which is beautifully fitted with a range of Chalon furniture.
Upstairs there are six bedrooms, all of which are of an excellent size and enjoy good outlooks along with two en-suites and two good sized bath/shower rooms.
To the rear of the property is a summer house which is currently being used as a gym, studio and an attached small timber barn.
