    About this property

    • This period townhouse dates from the 1700s and is positioned within Stamford town centre's Conservation Area.

      An alehouse in the mid-1800s, from which it retains the name, The Oak House, the listed front façade belies a deceptively spacious interior arranged over three floors, coupled with a walled and private south facing garden with pedestrian access to Austin Street, and a first floor roof terrace, with southerly roof-scape views to wooded countryside.

      Well-appointed throughout, the house retains the grace and character of its era, with features like stone flagged and wood flooring, period fireplaces, exposed stonework walls and original beams and timbers to its high ceilings.

      Accommodation
      The front door opens into a stone flagged entrance lobby, with a wide and inviting, high beamed ceiling reception hallway with stone fireplace and wood burner. Short flights of steps rise to first floor and descend to the dining kitchen, with access alongside to the drawing room.

      The drawing room has a high degree of character and charm. Spanning the full depth of the house, and level, with rear garden access, it has the same high beamed ceiling, stone fireplace and wood burner, with a lower level office/playroom area with French doors to the garden.

      The limestone flagged kitchen is fitted with a shaker style suite under wooden worktops, with integrated appliances and a gas-fired double oven Aga. There is ample space for formal dining, whilst a separate utility, with garden access, and a cloakroom/WC completes the ground floor accommodation.

      Rising form the hallway, at half landing level, there is a full-suite family bathroom, with a snug/playroom with French doors to a private south facing roof terrace.

      At full first floor level are two elegant front facing double bedrooms, one with en suite shower, with a further two second floor bedrooms, each with southerly views to the rear.

      Outside
      There is a highly private south facing rear garden, accessed from the house and with pedestrian access from Austin Street. It incorporates paved terraced areas, flowering and shrub borders and a marvellous cherry tree.
