About this property

    Occupying the core of Clare Lodge, a Grade II Listed Victorian Gothic house of circa 1850, South Wing has the building's main entrance and staircase.

    It offers fabulously proportioned accommodation with an abundance of period Victorian features. The accommodation is largely at first and second floor level, and the layout belies its official Title name of Flat 1.

    The front door enters in to an impressive, lantern lit, ground floor entrance stairwell hallway, currently furnished as an office, with fitted bookcases and stone tile flagged flooring. The oak staircase rises to the first floor, where there are two reception rooms, the kitchen and a utility and cloakroom. The principal reception rooms have high ceilings and large windows, whilst the sitting room has twin doors to the south facing raised terrace. The kitchen has ample room for a dining table. Bedroom accommodation is at second floor level, where the three bedrooms are all generous doubles, each with attractive views. An en suite bathroom serves bedroom one with the family bathroom close to bedrooms two and three. There is also a second half landing cloakroom.

    Tenure: Leasehold for 200 years from 25 December 1985. The Freehold is owned by the Clare Lodge (Wothorpe) Management Company, which is owned by the four leaseholders. Management fees are currently £1600/annum, incorporating building and gardening maintenance and ground rent.

I love the proportions and stature of this lovely house, which forms the core of a large converted Victorian Gothic building. With a fabulous entrance and stairwell, generous principal reception and bedrooms, the house has a private terrace and use of a communal garden, with garage and parking, close to the countryside of Burghley House's Great Park and within a mile of The George of Stamford, Stamford Junior School and the railway station.
