    About this property

    • The Old Stable House has been cleverly converted to create a stylish three-bedroom home arranged over two floors, having been originally built in the late 19th century as part of a small group of outbuildings which served a local mansion in what is now Finches Gardens.

      This attached period property has plentiful charm, with some delightful external features including Dutch gables, exposed beams and plasterwork to the first floor, a decorative tiled roof, and tall chimneys.

      Internally, the property is extremely well presented, with high ceilings and neutral decor, and offers versatile accommodation arranged over two floors.

      On the ground floor is a lovely kitchen/dining/family room which has a vaulted glass ceiling over the dining area, a bay window creating space for a sofa and a well-equipped kitchen, with a granite breakfast table, double butler's sink, excellent range of painted wooden cabinets and integrated appliances including a wine fridge, double oven, induction hob and microwave.

      There are two bedrooms situated on the ground floor (the master with an en-suite shower room), together with an office with access to the garage and a cloakroom.

      The large first floor landing leads to a spacious drawing room with double doors opening to a Juliet balcony and a recently fitted wood-burning stove.

      There is a further bedroom, and family bathroom with stylish contemporary fittings situated on the first floor.

      The floorplans give an excellent overview of the layout of the accommodation.

      Outside
      The Old Stable House is approached from Finches Lane via a five-bar gate, which opens to the courtyard ahead of the house and garage, which has power and water connected, and space for a washing machine. Across the drive are steps leading up to the mature and fully enclosed west-facing private garden, which has a timber summer house with power connected, terrace with space for table, chairs and barbecue, well-stocked flower beds and a tiered lawn.
