About this property

  • The Stile House is a charming Grade II listed village house of late 17th century origins with later additions.

    Lying in a Conservation Area, the house is of Hornton stone construction under a grey slate roof and offers a number of period features including open fireplaces, exposed timbers, flagstone and chequer board quarry tile floors, window seats, shutters, leaded lights, panelled internal doors.

    The house over the years has been sympathetically improved and modernised. A key addition is the lovely garden/sitting room with aspect and doors out into the garden. With an open fire this room makes for all year round living.

    To the front of the house is a generous, oak beamed, drawing room with an impressive inglenook fireplace. From here there are steps down to the cellar ideal for wine.

    There is useful boot room plus utility room with secondary spiral staircase. Here the current owners have a desk for working from home.

    There are four generous, light bedrooms, one of which is the principal bedroom with bathroom that can be shared with bedroom two which has an en suite dressing room. Here the spiral staircase takes you back down to the utility room. At this point the layout is such that one could incorporate the garden room, bedroom two, dressing room and utility room to create an integral annexe for a dependent relative or teenager.

    The sympathetic refurbishment works include the introduction of modern fixtures and fittings include base and eye level kitchen units, four oven Aga, two ring hob, Fired Earth tiles and solid wood flooring; the garden room; white bathroom fittings; spiral staircase.

    Bedroom two is ideal for teenagers or as a guest bedroom.

    There is a range of attractive traditional stone outbuildings including the Malthouse comprising further utility room and home office over; Thatched barn with a pair of garages, garden store and loft storage. Separate tiled floor workshop. These buildings provide a wonderful addition to the house and compliment what is already a well-proportioned family home. Off road parking to the rear and side of the house for around four or five cars.

    There are ample level walled gardens to the rear predominately laid to lawn with well planted herbaceous and shrub borders and beds. Stone paved entertaining area. BBQ area. Wendy House. Former pigsty. Beyond the main garden is a further orchard area with raised beds for vegetables and herbs. Beyond is a hard tennis court flanked by dry stone walls, in summer surrounded by Hollyhocks.

    Spacious versatile living, a multitude of useful outbuildings and generous gardens, rare for a village house.

I love the fact this house is in the village, within walking distance of all the amenities yet has such private tranquil gardens.
