    About this property

    • Generously proportioned, south-facing principal rooms characterise this handsome, Victorian, former farmhouse in the Chalke Valley. Built by the Pembroke Estate in 1856, it formed part of a tenanted farm until the house and adjacent farm buildings were separated from the farmland in the mid-1990's and, ultimately, Stoke Manor was sold to the current owner in 1999.

      Entrance is via a lobby, with a stone tiled floor, into a wide entrance hall. From this central stair hall, one can access all the principal rooms. The elegant, triple-aspect drawing room is south-facing and enjoys far-reaching countryside views up onto the ancient Ox Drove above Broad Chalke. It has French doors into the garden and working shutters. It also benefits from a wood-burning stove. The adjacent, south-facing, dining room has herringbone parquet flooring and a wood-burning stove. It also has a deep bread-oven that opens through to the neighbouring south-facing study, an attractive office space with an original fireplace and large Venetian style window, overlooking the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has a flagstone floor, a four-oven Aga and French doors, with working shutters, opening onto a secluded, walled courtyard garden. A walk-in larder, with slate open-shelving and a utility room, with a range of cupboards and a sink, are adjacent to the kitchen. The cosy sitting room has a flagstone floor, a wood-burning stove and French doors, with working shutters, opening onto
      the stone terrace and lawns beyond. There are storage rooms and two cloakrooms completing the ground floor and extensive cellars below, with original brick flooring.

      Up the main staircase are four large bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a spacious family shower room. The principal bedroom is dual-aspect and south-facing, with a fireplace and marble surround. Accessed from the landing is a walk-in airing cupboard. Back stairs from the rear hall lead up to a fifth double bedroom, with an en suite bathroom benefitting from a free-standing, roll-top bath and large walk-in storage cupboard.

      The property has a spacious paved driveway, with parking for several cars and a garage. The garden, predominantly laid to lawn, has a number of mature trees and shrubs, a herb garden and south-facing stone terraces. A hard tennis court separates the main area of the garden from a fenced vegetable garden. A private walled courtyard has a covered gazebo, a central mulberry tree and espaliered apple trees and clematis along the back wall.

    There are very few decent manor houses in the Chalke Valley of this size and I love the position and views over the hills beyond. It is a great family house, with more land available if one wished.
