Floorplans For Shipston On Stour, Warwickshire

Description

Stokes House is a handsome and charming Grade II Listed town house in the heart of Shipston on Stour conveniently situated to access the town’s amenities. The façade of the house bears a moulded datestone inscribed W/NK/1715. It is mainly built of local lias stone under a stone and slate roof with brick ridge and end stacks. Stokes House was built as a private dwelling in 1715 and then became The Bell Inn and later a bank, before returning to its original status as a private terraced house. The property provides most charming and comfortable living accommodation over three floors and the arrangement and measurements of the rooms can be seen on the accompanying floorplans. Stokes House is arguably one of the finest properties fronting Sheep Street.

The property is entered via an original part glazed panelled timber door with moulded wood surround opening into an impressive reception hall with original flagstone flooring leading through to the deceptively spacious downstairs accommodation. This comprises a well proportioned drawing room with large inglenook fireplace with chamfered timber bressumer beam above and stone steps lead down to the cellar. The dining room has an open fireplace flanked by fitted cupboards to either side, parquet flooring and a 19th Century bay window facing Sheep Street. A further well proportioned sitting room with fireplace leads to a useful boot room, cloakroom and well equipped laundry room. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room flooded with natural light has limed oak fronted cupboards and drawers, integrated appliances, polished black granite work surfaces, an AGA and separate gas hob, an island unit and French doors to the garden terrace as well as ample space for informal dining.

A dog-leg staircase with flat balusters dating from the 18th Century leads to the upstairs accommodation comprising the master bedroom suite with en suite bathroom and well appointed dressing room, three additional elegant bedroom suites and a further double bedroom. There is an additional landing with study space connecting two of the second floor suites.

Planning Permission exists (Ref: 19/01450/FUL dated 12/09/2019) to raise the roof of the existing south wing and install a new dormer window to house a dressing room and bathroom. The vendor of the property is a builder and the proposed scheme of works could be carried out at an additional cost to a purchaser’s own specifications.

One of the principal attractions of the property is the lovely south east facing walled gardens which are skilfully planted and set out over a number of levels connected by flights of steps, with different areas for outdoor entertaining as well as a dedicated area for growing cut flowers and vegetables. There is a superb timber outbuilding currently a professional home office with phone lines, electricity and broadband laid on. There are two further outbuildings providing various useful garden storage. A rear gate provides access to a connecting alleyway.
