A wonderfully-presented three bedroom property, adjoining the eastern wing of a Grade II* Listed manor house, with well-appointed accommodation and fine views, 10 miles equi-distant between the market towns of Stamford and Oakham.
The Hall is located 1.7 miles north of Stretton and almost equi-distant between the market towns of Oakham and Stamford amidst rolling Rutland countryside.
It is easily accessible with the A1 providing fast vehicular routes to the north and south to the London commuter railways stations at Grantham and Peterborough, whilst the area is blessed with a choice of fabulous state and private schools.
Stocken Hall is a striking 17th Century Grade II* Listed manor
house, which is approached along a private lane from Stretton and is surrounded by 4 acres, or thereabouts, of landscaped communal grounds.
With a highly attractive south facing Georgian façade, the property was occupied by the Cecil and Hesketh families until World War II. It was renovated in 1999 and reconfigured into eleven separate dwellings. Each property has two parking spaces.
The Old Chapel adjoins the Hall to its east. It was originally constructed as a Palm House and altered to a Chapel at a later date and now converted to a self-contained house, it offers charming three bedroomed accommodation of some 1,900 square feet with some standout features. Well-appointed, the hexagonal kitchen houses an oak suite, whilst the two shower rooms are modern and these combine with large windows framing some fabulous southerly facing views.
The solid oak front door opens into a high ceilinged travertine floored entrance and inner hallway, with fitted cupboards, which accesses the cloaks/WC, the ground floor guest bedroom suite with en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes and the drawing room. The drawing room is an impressive vaulted room with a hexagonal bay with shuttered windows which bathe the interior with natural light and offer a fine outlook. The drawing room adjoins the well-appointed hexagonal kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with an oak suite and granite worktops, with integrated appliances and a stone flagged floor. An external door leads to a seating area, a large garden shed and the communal gardens.
At first floor level, the mezzanine study is fitted with a Neville Johnston suite, and overlooks the drawing room. The principal bedroom adjoins a modern shower room, whilst bedroom 3 is a lovely hexagonal room, with low level windows and high level velux roof lights.
As owner, you will own a share in the Stocken Hall Residents' Association. The residents pay a Management Charge of £225 per month, which covers the Building's Insurance, the maintenance of the common parts and a sinking fund for the Association's 10 year maintenance plan

The local area is also delightful. Whilst Rutland is England's smallest county, Rutland Water (8 miles south) is the country's largest man-made lake and a water based playground, with sailing, fishing, walking and cycling, with other outdoor pursuits well catered for.
The market town of Stamford was the country's first Conservation Area and is deemed a Georgian gem and in Burghley House and its gardens has one of the country's finest Historic Houses to visit. Closer to hand, The Olive Branch at Clipsham, 2.9 miles east of Stocken Hall, is one of the area's most favoured award-winning restaurants.
