An unlisted period stone house in large gardens of nearing half an acre, with private parking, within the Georgian market town of Stamford.
This beautiful and unlisted period stone and Collyweston house of circa 1760, occupies a prime residential address close to Stamford's town centre and is positioned within beautiful and mature gardens of over 0.4 of an acre, within which there is private parking for several vehicles.
With a particularly striking, architecturally interesting south facing frontage, the front door opens into an inviting entrance hallway, whilst the three reception rooms line the south facing frontage of the house.
The sitting and living rooms are both elegant dual-aspect rooms have high ceilings and open fireplaces. A slate floored orangery/garden room links the sitting room to the vaulted family room, with herringbone floor and wood burner.
From the hallway, the kitchen is accessed past a library/office with fitted bookshelves, a quarry tiled cloakroom and the cellar access.
The family dining kitchen and sitting area are the core of the home, linking the original house to two former stone outbuildings. These now contain the family room and boot room, with its utility, shower room, pantry and garden entrance. The fitted kitchen has granite worktops and incorporates a Belfast sink, central island and gas fired double-oven Aga with dining and seating areas, making this a very sociable area of the home.
At first floor level, a wide landing area provides access to three double bedrooms, all with fitted wardrobes, and the family bathroom. The principal and second bedrooms are particularly well-proportioned.
Externally, the south facing house sits within largely walled gardens of 0.42 acres, or thereabouts. A driveway to the east of the garden, over which there is a right of access, leads to off-road parking for several cars in the north east corner of the garden, from which the house is approached.

You pass through the lawned gardens with pathways and well stocked borders and mature fruit and mixed species trees, including a magnificent magnolia and large, prolific fig tree which is over 100 years old. The garden incorporates kitchen and herb gardens, along with various pretty seating terraces from which to track the Sun.

I love this house. The gardens and social history are intriguing, whilst the combination of unlisted period house, large private gardens and parking close to Stamford's town centre is rare.James AbbottProperty agent
