    About this property

    • The Old Stables is an attractive, beautifully presented and very understated period stone dwelling with a wealth of architectural character. The property was cleverly converted from a former period stable block, outbuildings, and yard to create 3,700 sq ft of living space around a large central Mediterranean style courtyard. The versatile accommodation is arranged over two floors on one wing with further single storey guest accommodation on the opposite wing linked by a glazed corridor and all secluded by a high stone wall. The property has lovely thick walls, open fires and an Aga for winter cosiness and French doors from all the ground floor rooms with access to the colourful well stocked courtyard which becomes a tranquil haven in the Spring/Summer months and perfect for indoor/outdoor living.

      Outside

      The Old Stables is approached off a no-through country lane and into a cobblestone drive with parking for several vehicles which leads to a link detached double carport. The courtyard, garden and grounds of The Old Stables amounts to just under half an acre and includes an orchard and small lawned paddock accessed from the carriageway in the courtyard. The sheltered courtyard is really the focal point from the house; It has York stone paving, raised planters, well stocked flower beds and an ornate tree in the centre, enclosed by manicured hedging. There are several climbing plants including a mature wisteria. A high stone wall to the fourth side of the courtyard means that this area is entirely enclosed and private. This colourful space is ideal for entertaining, star gazing at night or just relaxing in the sun. The orchard and paddock provide more recreational space and back onto the Norman Church of All Saints providing an historic focal point to the stunning backdrop of the surrounding countryside. There is a period stone studio/workshop and separate garden store and a purpose-built building housing a home gym.
