About this property

  • A striking and well-appointed first and second floor apartment within the former stables to the Grade I Listed Burley on the Hill Mansion House, 6 The Stables occupies a stunning setting on the eastern side of the cour d'honneur with fine views over arable farmland to woodland.

    From the parking and garaging, The Stables wing is entered into a large vaulted and stone flagged communal entrance hallway, which serves the five properties within the stables. A stone cantilevered staircase rises to first floor level, where the private entrance to 6 The Stables is located.

    The entrance hall enters into an impressive vaulted sitting/dining room, with shuttered high window and attractive staircase that rises to the upper floor. The sitting room adjoins a well-appointed, modern breakfasting kitchen with fitted larder units, Belfast sink and Rangemaster cooker, and an adjoining utility room. The entrance hall also has access to two double bedrooms, the principal with dressing area and en suite and the second adjoining the family bathroom, whilst at upper floor level, the large mezzanine is a third bedroom/study/snug with patio doors opening onto the private roof terrace.

This apartment within The Stables is stylish yet set in a historic building with charm and elegance in abundance. The roof terrace is a real delight with spectacular views of the rolling Rutland countryside. For me the added benefit is the flexible accommodation which has been modernised; no stone left unturned in its finish.
