Description

Stoneleigh House is an outstanding family home which radiates character and charm. The present owners acquired the property in 1983 and have carried out an extensive programme of restoration, modernisation and extensions over the years. The result is an impressive, substantial residence that provides elegant and attractive accommodation which is ideal for entertaining but is also suited for everyday living.

Believed to date back to 1745, Stoneleigh House was one of three farmhouses on the lane which was the original cart track out of Newport. Today, it benefits from a delightfully private village setting and is entered via gates which lead to a circular driveway immediately in front of the House.

The accommodation is set over four floors and has been sympathetically renovated and retains many attractive features including ceiling and wall beams (some have Roman numerals on), feature fireplaces, decorative coving, Victorian floor tiles and original polished oak floor boards.

Of particular note is the drawing room which leads into the triple aspect garden room, a perfect entertaining area.

The bespoke kitchen was created by Marley Designs, a well-known name in Shropshire for quality workmanship, and feature painted, solid elm units, with a granite work surface. There are integrated appliances including: two Sharp integrated microwaves, two Neff ovens, a dishwasher, two fridges and an electric Professional Rangemaster stove. Leading off the kitchen is a breakfast room to one side, and to the other a utility room with access to the rear courtyard.

The ground floor accommodation is completed with a cloakroom and access to the basement with wine cellar and store.

The master bedroom suite has its own private access via a spiral staircase which was specifically designed by the current owners to represent their love of French architecture. The triple aspect master bedroom has a separate dressing room and generous ensuite bathroom with a free standing roll top bath and separate shower.

A turned oak staircase leads to two delightful bedrooms, one of which was the original master bedroom and has its own ensuite bathroom and fitted wardrobes. There is also a shower room on this floor. A further staircase leads up to the second floor which has three pretty bedrooms, though the current owners use one as a study. Outside, the gardens extend to approximately 2.43 acres and provide a beautiful private setting which complement Stoneleigh House perfectly. Great care and thought has gone into the design and include a wide range of trees and shrubs which provide year round interest.

The reception lobby provides a welcoming entrance to Stoneleigh House and has a particularly impressive brick fireplace to one side. There are five reception rooms which exude exceptional quality, are well proportioned and enjoy views of the gardens and beyond.

A terrace wraps around the House and provides areas for outside entertaining and dining and gives access into the garden room.

A secondary driveway has the benefit of lighting and sweeps around the western edge of the property to the rear of Stoneleigh House where there is a generous car park, together with the garage, garden store and paddock. A fantastic block paved patio area between the garage and the rear of the house provides an enclosed, sheltered courtyard with access to the side and utility room.
