The approach to Stoberry House is through 25 acres of wonderful parkland. On arrival at the house, the views over the City of Wells - with its magnificent cathedral centre stage - are breath taking with the Vale of Avalon, Glastonbury Tor and the Quantocks in the far distance. A vista that will never tire.
The house sits overlooking its stunning gardens (approx 5 acres in total) with well planted beds, large ornamental pond stocked with grass carp, wild flower meadow, sunken garden and an abundance of discrete terraces from which to soak up the ambience of this very special place.
Stoberry House has been run as a highly regarded B&B and events venue. The interior space is well configured and is arranged so that the main entertaining rooms benefit from the extraordinary views. The large David Salisbury orangery off the kitchen is flooded with light and benefits from the extensive views. It is currently used as the dining room but would make a fabulous family living space especially as it is adjacent to the large more formal drawing room. The kitchen is well appointed with an electric AGA, fitted appliances and a secondary fan oven and gas hob are positioned in the central island.
The front door situated on the edge of the sunken garden leads into the hall which is central to the house from which there is access to the formal drawing room on one side and the breakfast room on the other. Also on the ground floor is a TV room, cloakroom and reading room. Another outside door from the sunken garden leads into a self-contained sitting /breakfast room with a kitchenette and access to a secondary staircase. It is extremely easy to use this as a two bedroom self-contained unit if required.
The first floor is light and airy with a wide landing and central stairwell. The master bedroom with his and hers dressing areas and a well-appointed en suite captures the stunning views from two large picture windows at the end of the bedroom. There are 4 further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a former laundry room which would easily make a further bedroom.
As we have already mentioned the gardens are simply stunning especially with the backdrop of the extensive views - planted sympathetically within their landscape they provide a stunning combination of vistas accented with wildlife ponds and water features. The borders are planted to give colour and interest in every season, spring bulbs, irises, roses, fernery, salvias and several seated areas from which to enjoy it.
Close to the house, there is a large one-bedroom annexe with an en suite and its own terrace.
The current owners have obtained planning permission to extend. The existing walled garden is being retained by the current owners but this does not affect the house detrimentally at all.
