Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fabulously appointed country house which has been lavishly renovated by the current owners, positioned within mature gardens of 3.5 acres and with attractive pastoral views over parkland

Location

Stoke Rochford is an attractive small village of largely period stone dwellings, amidst gently rolling pastoral and wooded countryside. 6 miles south of Grantham and to the west of the A1, Stoke Rochford was traditionally the Estate village to Rochford Hall, the ancestral home of the McQuorkodales and now a Hotel, Conference and Golf Centre.

Grantham is a well serviced market town which caters for most retail and commercial needs. It lies on the East Coast mainline for rail services to London and Scotland and is used daily by commuters to the Capital.

The A1 bypass also offers fast vehicular access north and south, whilst the A52 and A607 provide direct access to the cities of Nottingham and Leicester.

The area is blessed with a choice of well thought-of schooling with The Kings School, Grantham along with the Kesteven & Grantham Girls’ School just two local examples. Others include Bourne Grammar, Witham Hall Preparatory School, Stamford and Oakham Schools, which are all within a 20 mile radius.

Description

A striking Grade II listed stone property approached through electric gates and along a long lantern lit, tree-lined driveway, Rochford House is positioned within 3.5 acres of mature gardens.

The beautifully presented home offers graceful and elegantly
proportioned accommodation with a versatile flow, mainly comprising three formal reception rooms and eight bedrooms, which are served by four full-suite bathrooms. The property has been comprehensively renovated and is a joy to experience. Beautiful period features, like tiled and open board wood flooring, working window shutters, stone fireplaces and panelled walls, combine with partial under-floor heating, modern pressurised plumbing and fabulously appointed kitchen and bathroom suites.

The gardens are al so a delight. Formal lawns surround the house, with mature beech deciduous trees lining the boundaries. This is a beautifully planned and presented property.

The house is entered through a panelled vestibule to the spacious tile floored entrance hall, from which the main oak staircase rises to the first floor. The panelled study has an integrated sound system and wood burning stove, whilst the three formal reception rooms line the hallway. The elegant sitting room is dual-aspect with a large bay window and a wood burning stove in its attractive fireplace. The drawing room is triple aspect with fitted bookcases and another wood burning stove, whilst the spacious 25’ dining room has a varnished wooden floor and windows that line two sides of the room. The 31’ long kitchen is the core of the home, from which French doors open to the garden’s stone terrace. The fitted kitchen incorporates extensive wall and base units beneath granite worktops and includes a generous island unit and Aga, with a pantry area. Alongside the kitchen the side hall offers access to the parking area and the utility room, boot room and cloak/WC beyond, with an external door to an enclosed courtyard.

The first floor is served by two staircases, with a cellar accessed from below the secondary staircase. The principal bedroom suite occupies one wing of the house, with a dual-aspect bedroom, dressing room and full-suite ensuite bathroom. Bedroom two and bedroom three both have splendid en-suite bathrooms, whilst bedroom four has a play room adjoining it. The second floor accommodation is of an equally impressive standard with four further bedrooms (one currently furnished as a cinema room), and a second family bathroom.

OUTSIDE
The house is set back in a private position within its grounds. It is approached through electric gates with a long lantern lit private driveway, which passes an orchard and stable block (currently internally garaging), to an extensive turning sweep at the house, with access to a large workshop and car port, which together offer generous further garaging.

The gardens surround the house. Largely lawned, the gardens have mature deciduous beech, horse chestnut and sycamore species trees, among other varieties, and flowering and shrub borders. A large stone flagged terrace adjoins the house, with access through French doors to the kitchen, whilst at the southern end of the gardens, a post and rail fenced holding paddock has a stable and field shelter. The gardens offer attractive open views over neighbouring parkland towards the Parish Church and woodland, and extends in all to approximately 3.5 acres.
