Believed to have been constructed in the late 1800s, Stour House offers elegant and beautifully proportioned accommodation as expected. This outstanding house has been completely renovated by the present owners, utilising the finest craftsmanship, and combining a contemporary lifestyle with a Victorian property. Decoration to some reception rooms and bedrooms include bespoke one off wall paper designed to the owner’s specification. Of particular note is the refitted kitchen with a central island and a range of bespoke cabinets, and the floral ceiling carvings in the kitchen and reception rooms reminiscent of the works of Grinling Gibbons.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors, plus a cellar, comprising seven bedrooms with five bathrooms. The vaulted ceiling and lantern window on the main landing floods the first floor
with natural light. Other original features lovingly restored include the leaf fold doors, the oak staircase, the Victorian floor tiling to the entrance hall and ornate plaster coving.
Technologically, the property is extremely advanced having a fully automated Control 4 Media system giving the benefit of remotely controlling the motion sensor lighting, heating and security systems. A unique concealed high end Hifi system has been embedded in the walls and can be remotely controlled via a smart-phone App.
Extending to 5.1 acres, the grounds immediately adjacent to Stour House arepredominately lawned, and slope gently away to the North to mixed mature woodland and an area of meadow. This area incorporates an enhanced drainage system. The gardens have also been the subject of major investment in time and funding, including installing an automated irrigation system and 5000 litre water tank, supplied from a private borehole. The west facing formal York stone parterre has been redesigned to include paths, raised flower borders and an ornate wall. To the rear, the enormous Pavilion has been refurbished and the surrounding gardens landscaped with an extensive planted terrace. The land beyond is supported and retained by a substantial buttressed wall.
The outbuildings include a single garage, a triple garage with accommodation above, and a gymnasium. To the West are several brick build storage sheds one of which houses the oils heating tank. A shingle carriage drive to the front is accessed via security gates, controlled from a surveillance system, and bordered by an avenue of trees.
