    About this property

    • Stirling House has been extensively remodelled, extended and renovated by the current owners, with meticulous attention to detail, to create this magnificent home. The property is set behind a stone wall, approached off a quiet village road, with block paving leading to electric wooden gates and a resin drive which runs up to the house. The house sits to the rear of its plot and enjoys views over open countryside to Brailes Hill.

      The reception hall is impressive and provides access to the principal rooms. A graceful staircase curls up to the first floor. To the left of the reception hall is an elegant drawing room and a formal dining room connected by an atrium. Two sets of French doors open from the drawing room to the gardens. The bespoke kitchen/breakfast/family room is over 65 feet long, with large glass roof light and floor-to-ceiling glazed panels overlooking the garden. There is an excellent range of cabinets with Silestone worktops, a substantial island unit and a Silestone dining table which accommodates 16 guests. A study, library and cloakroom completes the principal ground floor accommodation. In addition there is a practical boot room, utility, gym and store room linking through to the quadruple garage.

      The principal bedroom suite features a lovely dual-aspect bedroom with countryside views, his and hers dressing rooms and an en suite bathroom with walk-in shower. There are four further double bedrooms and four bathrooms.

      The gardens are mainly laid to immaculate maintained lawn with mature specimen trees. A substantial paved terrace with retractable canopy lies against the rear terrace and provides the perfect spot for al fresco dining.
