A well-appointed ground and first floor maisonette, with parking and garages, within this attractive building and stunning 60 acre setting, between Oakham and Stamford.
A striking and well-appointed ground and first floor house, within the former stables to the Grade I listed Burley on the Hill Mansion House, The Stables occupies a stunning setting in the eastern wing of the house.
The Stables is entered via a large vaulted and stone flagged communal entrance hallway, which serves The Stables five properties, bookended by South House and Griffin House, and from which this property is entered to its private entrance hallway.
The drawing/dining room is quite magnificent. 41' long, with three large windows providing wonderful views of the cour d'honneur, the room features high vaulted ceilings and the original stable partitions, which nicely section the room. It is a standout and versatile room, and a convivial family and entertaining space.
The modern kitchen is beautifully appointed with granite worktops, integrated appliances and ample space for informal eating, whilst almost full-height French doors open to the garden's terrace.
The former fourth bedroom is now used as a well-appointed home office, with fitted desk, drawers and shelving. It is positioned alongside the downstairs cloakroom, whilst there is a large utility room and a store room, with mezzanine, accessed from the drawing/dining room.
There are three generous double bedrooms, all en suite, and bedroom three, with its shower room is located on the ground floor.
Bedrooms one and two are at first floor level and are both particularly attractive, each with high, eye-catching, groin vaulted ceilings and en suites. Bedroom two has a bathroom, whilst bedroom one a shower room, with the added benefit of a dressing room. Both bedrooms have lovely views.

Elegant proportions and fabulous finishes sum up this deceptively spacious property, where the setting, history, architecture and lifestyle is second to none, to me, with Churchill, international cricket, scandal and film sets all feature. The gardens are delightful, whilst the wider 60+ acres of parkland, woodland and deer park offer beautiful walks and a fabulous lifestyle so close to Rutland Water.James AbbottProperty agent
