THE PROPERTY

Stockgrove Park House was divided into six private residences just before the Millennium, with Maple House occupying a substantial part of one of the original wings. Great attention to detail went into the divisions to create substantial lifestyle homes of high quality. Maple House does not disappoint benefitting from extremely well-proportioned rooms on the ground and first floor, ideally suited for entertaining and retaining all their period charm, with original detailing including decorative coving and ceiling roses to principle rooms. The extensive cellars are currently divided into four rooms and lend themselves to be used for a variety of purposes. There is a lapsed permission for the conversion of the attic into further accommodation if required. The mature garden lies to the rear of the house enclosed by established hedging providing a high degree of privacy with large seating terrace opening onto lawn edged by mature hedgerows. THE ACCOMMODATION The glazed front door opens into the reception hall which runs along the front of the house, with main reception rooms radiating off and stairs rising to the first floor galleried landing. The drawing room benefits from a dual aspect with oak parquet flooring and carved cherry fireplace with slate surround and hearth. Across the hall lies the dining room with quarry tiled floor and a pair of sash windows overlook the rear garden. The room is ideally located with direct access into the kitchen and Reception Hall. The kitchen/breakfast room also benefits from views over the rear garden with the kitchen featuring a bespoke maple and iroko range of base and eye level units with iroko worktops. The matching island has a granite work surface with inset double bowl Butler sink with mixer tap, along with integral Siemens dishwasher and wine rack. Above the island is a hanging rack with recessed halogen lighting. The green four oven Aga has pride of place with two hobs and warming plate. Lying behind the kitchen is the utility room with fitted units and plumbing for washing machine and dryer. The study enjoys a private position at one end of the hall with window overlooking the courtyard and at the other end of the hall is a walk-in coats cupboard and cloakroom, along with part glazed door opening into the rear garden. LOWER GROUND FLOOR Stairs lead down to the dry cellars which benefit from central heating and currently divided into four rooms and providing ideal facilities for gym, wine cellar, storage room and workshop. One of the rooms houses the Thermecon oil fired central heating boiler. FIRST FLOOR A dog leg wooden staircase gently rises to the galleried landing with display alcove and providing access to large airing cupboard and loft hatch with retractable ladder. The master bedroom lies directly off the landing with full height run of fitted wardrobes along one wall. The en suite is divided with main area being fully tiled with double width shower, pedestal hand basin and matching bidet with low level W.C. A step leads up to the bathroom with roll top bath on clawed feet and recessed cupboard. A further bedroom lies off the main landing. An inner landing running along the front of the house provides access to three further double bedrooms, with guest bedroom having its own en suite shower room and the other two benefitting from Jack and Jill family bathroom. OUTSIDE The front of the property overlooks the main courtyard to Stockgrove Park House with Maple House having its own dedicated car parking. The garden lies to the rear of the property and is enclosed behind parkland fencing, edged by mature clipped hedgerows. A paved seating terrace lies close to the rear elevation, ideally suited for outdoor entertaining, with path meandering down the lawn edged by borders with pedestrian gate providing access to the double garage with electric up and over door. To the side of the garage is a further car parking space. Lying behind the garage is the oil tank and storage area.
