Description
Dating from 1710-1720 ‘Mellowstones’ was originally a series of three tied cottages attached to the Hinton Priory in Hinton Charterhouse at the head of the Valley. Purchased by the current owners in 1998, the property was comprehensively refurbished, remodelled and extended, effortlessly combining its original charm including a series of feature fireplaces from the original Georgian with the art deco and 1930’s periods. Also worth highlighting is a series of particularly intricate and attractive leaded light windows with coloured insets and mainly floral motifs taken from the original cottages and spread through both floors of the house.

Arranged over 2 storeys the property offers spacious and versatile accommodation, thoughtfully placing the master suite and 3 bedrooms at entry level on the ground floor to maximise the stunning views which the house enjoys south across the Iford Valley.
Stairs from here then access a series of 3 interconnecting reception rooms below and a stunning kitchen/breakfast room with access to a sheltered sun terrace with veranda and pergola.

Surrounded by woodland the property sits in large and established gardens laid mainly to the side. There is an integral garage accessed via the utility room on the ground floor and a large gravelled driveway and parking area to the front.
