A Grade II* manor house with fishing lakes, a tennis court, equestrian facilities and 9.15 acres.
Stockwell Manor, a Grade II* Listed property, is a former Hall House which is believed to date from the 15th or early 16th century.

The ground floor accommodation is accessed from a welcoming reception hall with flagstone flooring and includes a large drawing room with an open fireplace and a door to the gardens. There is a spacious morning room with another open fireplace and French doors to the garden, plus a farmhouse kitchen, boot room and a good size utility room. The beautifully presented farmhouse kitchen provides a range of stylish fitted units with a four oven AGA, Belfast sink and ample space for a sizeable dining table. There is also a large part-panelled dining room with a magnificent inglenook open fireplace, as well as a useful secondary kitchen; plus a wellproportioned study with oak-panelled walls, an internal viewing window, another open fireplace and access to it's own patio in the gardens.
Accessible over a staircase from the reception hall or from a concealed staircase adjoining the dining room, the first floor offers a large principal bedroom with a spacious en suite shower room, six further well-proportioned bedrooms and two well-presented family bathrooms.
This property has 9.15 acres of land.
Stockwell Manor is approached over a sweeping private driveway providing parking for multiple vehicles and giving access to the detached double garage. The property is surrounded by a beautiful established landscaped formal garden extending to approximately two acres, laid mainly to level lawn with well-stocked flowerbeds and a variety of mature shrubs and trees. The gardens feature an all-weather floodlit tennis court, numerous seating areas, a picturesque garden well, a pretty stream and a paved terrace with a fixed brick barbeque- ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. The property also benefits from two spring-fed lakes adjoining the garden, currently stocked with carp; together with a separate entrance to excellent equestrian facilities including a stable block with five loose boxes, a stable yard with parking, an all-weather manège and a field of grazing pasture. In total, the gardens and grounds extend to approximately 9.15 acres.
