A substantial, Grade II listed Georgian, four bedroom home that has been beautifully renovated and extended, with elegant proportions and original features adding period charm. Sitting in the sought after village of Stilton, just south of Peterborough, No.12 High Street stands out impressively along the High Street where ample parking is available.

Warm Welcome

Entering through the wide, solid Georgian cherry red front door with traditional lionhead knocker, the space opens into a welcome and bright hallway, where original flagstone flooring lies, and the characterful staircase curves gently up to the first floor ahead. Hang your coat on the traditional pegs, with additional storage beneath the stairs, before making your way through into the drawing room on the left.

Snuggle Up

A log-burning stove blazes a cosy warmth in this elegant room, while the high ceilings are a nod to the home’s Georgian origins. An elegant, curved sash bay window with original shutters to the front, and a charming arched sash window to the rear overlooking the beautiful walled garden.

Dine in Style

Across the hallway, discover the formal dining room, an atmospheric place to entertain guests courtesy of its original wood flooring, arched alcoves either side of a tiled open fireplace with marble surround and bay sash window with shutters.

Culinary Delights

To the rear of the home sits the showstopping contemporary kitchen, where soft shades of pebble grey and baltic blue feature in the decor and cabinetry. Gather sociably at the central island breakfast bar, brimming in storage and topped in quartz. Cook up a feast on the gas Range cooker and separate AGA, with additional high-end appliances including a double Belfast sink with Quooker tap, integrated dishwasher, fridge, freezer, larder cupboard and double wine cooler. Original sash windows overlook the pretty courtyard, dripping in fragrant amethyst wisteria which takes centre stage in spring which you can access easily through the back door to the side of the kitchen.

Heart of the Home

Cleverly converted from existing outbuildings is the exquisite garden room where original archways have been seamlessly blended into the design granting access to, and sublime views of the garden. Rooflights draw in further light, creating a wonderfully light and bright feel to the room. The hub of the home, a woodburning stove is nestled within an exposed brick chimney breast, while underfloor heating emanates from beneath the traditionally tiled floor.

Refresh and Revive

Along from the kitchen, discover a beautifully finished family bathroom, with a deep bath containing rainfall shower above. There is also a handy laundry area with plumbing for washer and dryer.

Slumber Awaits

To the first floor, two large double bedrooms await to the front of the home. Overlooking the comings and goings of Stilton through traditional sash windows, classic décor creates a peaceful ambience in the guest bedrooms, where high ceilings and feature fireplaces add character and warmth. To the rear, accessed via its own private stairs, is the sequestered principal suite. With its masterful proportions, peaceful décor and quaint original fireplace, this bedroom is a soporific sanctuary, opening up to a refitted, luxurious shower room en suite shower room and private dressing room-cum-office, formerly the fourth bedroom, which could also serve as a sweet nursery.

Outdoor Oasis

The home has a wonderful façade on the High Street which sits within the conservation area and is approached from the front aspect. The private landscaped gardens can be accessed from the main home and through the double gates to the left-hand side of the home. The walled garden wraps itself around the side and rear of No. 12. There are a variety of south and west facing contemporary patio and seating areas making it a sun trap and great space for al fresco dining and entertaining throughout the summer. Leading down to the end of the walled garden, is a beautiful Hibiscus tree with south facing hot tub terrace and pergola.

On Your Doorstep

No. 12 High Street stands in the heart of the village, conveniently located a few miles south of Peterborough and with great accessibility into the nearby towns of Oundle and Stamford. A village with an authentic sense of community, Stilton welcomes all. Ideal for new families, couples and those seeking to retire to a rural setting.

Near and Far

Renowned for the eponymous cheese, whether or not the village is the birthplace of the nation’s best loved blue is a subject of great debate, though widely reported research by Richard Landy in Stilton, Matthew O’Callaghan in Melton Mowbray and historian Trevor Hickman suggests that cheese making was taking place in Stilton as early as the beginning of the 18th Century. Cheese debates aside, Stilton has excellent facilities, including a highly rated primary school, shops, pubs, pharmacy, and a brand-new sports pavilion, alongside easy access to nearby Peterborough and its highspeed rail links into London (49 minutes to London Kings Cross). With secondary schooling in mind, options are plentiful and include The King’s School and Peterborough School, Stamford Endowed Schools and Oundle School.
