about the property

Beautifully presented Grade II listed Carriage House conversion nestled within the Windrush valley, surrounded by stunning Cotswold countryside

This unique property forms part of a charming Grade II listed period stable block once part of the Sherborne House Estate. Originally the carriage house, 9 Sherborne Stables is a wonderful mews style house situated in this incredibly impressive setting on the original 4,000-acre Sherborne Park Country Estate dating back to 1752. You enter the property through the original carriage doorway that opens onto the ‘L’ shaped open plan reception and dining room with French doors onto the rear patio garden. This is a spectacular room with reclaimed oak floorboards and a stone fireplace with wood burner. The fully fitted kitchen has a window overlooking the garden and an impressive range of solid wood cabinetry. There is also a downstairs WC.
