Listed Grade II, Stanton Court is a Jacobean manor house built in the Elizabethan style. The house and surrounding walls are constructed of ashlar Cotswold stone with a stone slate roof. The main entrance to the property comes from the south, whilst the north is an easier approach for the cottages and courtyard. The current owners have undertaken a comprehensive programme of renovation, restoration and decoration to the highest of standards. The gardens and grounds provide a wonderful setting for the house, which, whilst on the edge of village, is very secure. The house has many fine period features, including open fireplaces, fine cornices and plasterwork and wooden floors. Stanton Court has a wonderful series of reception rooms and good proportion of bedroom suites, providing a fantastic family home that is also outstanding for entertaining.
Approached off the courtyard are four cottages.
GRANARY COTTAGE: comprising, on two floors, a games room, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. SHENBERROW COTTAGE: with two floors comprising a kitchen, sitting room, dining room and on the first floor an ensuite bedroom and a second bedroom with a separate bathroom. ROSEMARY COTTAGE: having on the ground floor a kitchen, a sitting room and on the first floor two bedrooms and a bathroom. PEACH & PADDOCK COTTAGES: with a kitchen/sitting room, bathroom, sitting room, bedroom and further bathroom. Attached to this is the orangery.
Stanton Court has some stunning gardens which have been designed to create colour throughout the year but especially in the spring and autumn. The previous owner employed the Chelsea gold medallist garden designer, Rupert Golby. The classic period house is complemented by its perfect position in the well thought out formal gardens which extend to a paddock and some pasture with a lake. From the garden room terrace, the formal lawn runs away from the house to a series of gardens which are interspersed with naturally fed water features that are fed from a series of streams, rills and a well with flowerbeds and a small arboretum. To the southern end of the lawn is a large yew hedge forming a natural border and has a door leading to the Churchyard. The rill runs through to a spectacular potager into an end pond enhanced by four medlar trees. The potager is overlooked by a stone summer house. Beyond this is the orchard with pear, cherry, apple. Quince and plum trees and beyond that a small arboretum and paddock with a large pond.
The cricket field and pavilion are in front of the house across the village lane. The cricket ground and pavilion are used by local cricket clubs with the permission of the owners on an annual basis. Separated from the main house, there is a 50 acre block of woodland with mixed decidious trees including Ash and Birch. A public footpath skirts the edge of the wood but there is no public footpath through the wood. There is a right of way up the track for vehicle access to the wood for the owner of the woodland.
