    About this property

    • This elegant two-bedroom apartment occupies a ground floor position within the handsome Stocken Hall mansion house. With 17th century origins, the property retains an abundance of character including high ceilings typical of the era, tall sash windows and decorative coving. These features are beautifully complemented by modern additions such as a tasteful contemporary décor scheme, a handsome kitchen and sleek bath and shower rooms.

      The grade II* listed Stocken Hall was renovated in 1999 into eleven separate dwellings. Manor Gates is one of the ground floor apartments, centrally positioned within the mansion house, from which there are fine south facing views, and crucially with its own private entrance, in addition to the access from the mansion's central stairwell hall.

      The accommodation is deceptively spacious affording over 1700 sq ft of space with high ceilings and large windows further enhancing the feeling of light and space. The accommodation is entered via a welcoming Minton tile floored entrance hall, to a useful boot room, with floor to ceiling fitted cupboards and a central dining hallway. The symmetry of the 23ft sitting room impresses and serves as the heart of the home, with access to the Mansion central communal entrance stairwell hall too.

      From the dining hall, the fully fitted kitchen has appealing solid wood cabinetry and doors, beneath quartz worksurfaces, with a gas range cooker and space for a dishwasher and washer/dryer.

      The spacious principal double bedroom has an almost full-height south facing bay window and built-in wardrobes, and a well-appointed en-suite shower room. Double bedroom two, with elegant window seats beneath its large windows adjoins the property's principal bathroom.

      Manor Gates is set within mature grounds of about four acres comprising beautifully landscaped gardens with rolling lawns, box hedging and gravel pathways with far-reaching views across the surrounding fields and open countryside. This property's private entrance is found to the rear of the mansion house, with gravelled parking to the front of the oak front entrance door.

    This is a fabulous apartment, which I have sold previously in my career. I really like the elegant accommodation and finishes, along with parking at your own front door. The area has fabulous walks and cycling routes, along with dining pubs, like The Olive Branch at Clipsham and Jackson Stops in Stretton, both about two miles from this property.
