Stowey Court is a beautiful Grade II Listed country home, which has undergone significant improvement and renovation over the last 20+ years of the current owner’s occupation. The property is suited to a number of different uses, as a fine large single family residence, as well as an excellent home with income opportunity. As such, the current owners run their own business from offices within the property with full permissions. A self-contained three bedroom maisonette lies within the main house offering a rental or holiday let opportunity without any significant changes, but also could be amalgamated within the main house, which provides up to ten bedrooms served by seven bathrooms. The current owners also have permissions in place as a wedding venue, which the property in our opinion, would be well suited, but significant opportunities exist as a boutique hotel, holiday letting, restaurant with rooms, together with the carp ponds offering a fishing opportunity. It is rare indeed to find a property of this age and size, so ably set up both in terms of accommodation and quality of presentation, to allow new owners to step in and potentially trade at a very early stage. Within the grounds is a beautiful 17th century gazebo listed Grade II* as well as a former orangery (Grade II* Listed) with planning consent for conversion into office accommodation, if required.
