Having impressive, yet graceful, proportions the unique family home includes a reception hallway with flagstone floor and elegant staircase, beautiful light filled drawing room with views of the garden, formal dining room with garden views, cosy family snug, guest's cloakroom, striking breakfast kitchen with walk in pantry and wood panelled dining area, study overlooking the front aspect, large boot room and further cloakroom. To the first floor you have eight substantial bedrooms, four bathrooms and a games room, with three attic rooms suitable for further bedroom accommodation if required. 

By mixing historical features with modern flair, the chic interior style is classic and understated creating a restful, homely feel throughout. The honey-coloured tones of the limestone house sympathetically blends with the picturesque landscaped gardens planted with architectural topiary, deep herbaceous borders and English scented roses, whilst parkland, field and countryside views stretch out around.

A recently resurfaced tennis court will guarantee hours of energetic entertainment for everyone and afterwards you can relax in your heated outdoor swimming pool. The large lawn garden is perfect for impromptu cricket matches, frantic games of bulldog, penalty shoot outs or croquet.

As you weave your way through the long grasses of the wild garden, follow the path as it teases you away to explore your private woodland where perennial wildflowers such as primroses, wood anemones and bluebells thrive under the shade of the ancient trees. As night time falls, light the fire pit and reach for the blankets and marshmallows because this is where your children's favourite memories are waiting to be made, nestling under the canopy of the ancient trees.  


Electrically operated entrance gate with gravel driveway and turning circle to the front with the grounds and gardens all around. Tucked away to the side are a quantity of outbuildings including garaging, stabling and old livestock stores.

A single storey, three bedroom, characterful cottage with private garden is also included within the sale. The fully renovated cottage is currently tenanted and rental income details can be provided.

Swimming pool heated by air source heat pump.
Peterborough City Council, council tax band H.
Grounds of approximately just over 6 acres.

The Georgian market town of Stamford was voted number 1 place to live by 'The Sunday Times', and it's easy to see why.

Stamford is the proud home to Burghley House, one of England's greatest Elizabethan houses with its magical gardens and deer park, where the internationally renowned Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials takes place every September.

There is an excellent choice of well-regarded state schools and excellent independent schools with Stamford Endowed School for girls and boys aged 2-18yrs, all intermingled with antiquarian book shops, galleries, boutiques, cafes, bars, restaurants and a plethora of artisan shops. Alternative private education establishments locally with boarding facilities also include Oundle School, Uppingham School and Oakham School and are all within a 30 minute journey.

Tallington Lakes is only a few miles away with 205 acres of clean spring water fed lakes which are ideal if you want to water ski, wakeboard, jet ski, dinghy sail, windsurf or canoe. There is also a dry ski slope and a 15 metre climbing tower on the park, so there is something for everyone. When you're ready to explore further, Rutland Water is just 25 minutes away offering a huge choice of outdoor pursuits such as cycling, water sports, open water swimming, triathlons, marathons, fishing and bird watching with some of the best views around.

A short 20 minute drive will take you to the progressive city of Peterborough for its vibrant life, cathedral, shops and services. Peterborough railway station is on the mainline and from there you can be in London Kings Cross within a very manageable 45 minutes.
