This stylishly presented, modern and contemporary house within an extensively refurbished Georgian shell has a private walled garden and an attractive position in the centre of Stamford.
No. 4 St Mary's Place is a Grade II* listed Georgian townhouse which has been fully renovated to create a 21st century home in an elegant and prestigious building. No. 4 St Mary's Place is one of Stamford's most iconic and historic homes in arguably the best location in the town. Tucked away in the corner of St Mary's Place, No.4 is a beautiful residence away from the bustle of town and roads, yet situated right in its heart.
St Mary's Church is directly opposite and one of Stamford's many Church spires can be viewed from nearly every window. Located in the heart of Stamford's Conservation Area, the setting is calm and peaceful. In its earliest form the house was built in the mid-1300s with additions in 1650 and 1790. No. 4 St Mary's Place is home to the Corpus Christi Crypt believed to be installed in the 14th century.
The front door opens into a tessellated tiled entrance hallway with the kitchen positioned to the right of the hall. It is fully fitted with NGI units and integrated appliances, as well as an island and integral kitchen table. Opposite the kitchen is the dining room with access through to the south facing study. Back in the main hallway there is a cloak/boot room, with snug and utility room following on from here. There is access to the garden from the snug, as well as a back staircase to the property, which leads to bedroom two on the first floor, and bedroom five on the second floor.
The elegant Georgian main staircase winds throughout the centre of the house and is one of the items noted in the Grade II* listing. Taking the stairs to the first floor, the main drawing room commands attention with many features, including fireplaces at each end of the room, five imposing sash windows and two ceiling roses from which hang statement chandeliers, creating the perfect entertaining space. The floor then splits with a mezzanine floor leading to the guest suite complete with dressing room and an en suite, spacious bathroom.
The second floor opens onto the library landing with principal bedroom and en suite at the front of the house offering spectacular views of St Mary's Place and Church. Bedroom three with en suite is also located on this floor. A second mezzanine floor leads to bedrooms four and five with the family bathroom situated between the two. The third floor takes us to the top of the house and bedroom six which comprises a double bedroom, games room and en suite bathroom. The cellar is accessed from the main ground floor hallway and leads to the property's plant room, wine cellar and, most notably, the Corpus Christi Crypt. The vaulted crypt is home to the angel and shield, and is the second, and most important, item noted in the Grade II* listing of the property.
There is a private and spacious south facing garden with direct access from the street via an internal corridor, and features a greenhouse, garden shed and wood store. Spacious and mature with fruit trees, lawn and patio area, the garden is secluded and peaceful. The house also has a separate, private courtyard away from the main garden, perfect for alfresco dining, accessed from the main hallway of the house.
