Described by Pevsner as exceptionally sumptuous in the style of William Kent and listed Grade I, Ston Easton Park is a wonderful Georgian country house with delightful Grade II listed Repton gardens and views across the neighbouring parkland. Ideally located within the popular county of Somerset and affording good access to the neighbouring cities of Bath, Bristol and Wells. Ston Easton Park an appealing prospect for buyers seeking a superb country home or a landmark building from which to run a commercial venture.
Tall stone pillars with ornate pedimented iron gates open onto the long tree lined drive which leads through landscape gardens to the appealing Georgian Mansion House dating from 1769. The west wing contains the earliest part of the house and the delightful symmetry of the façade displays three storeys and incorporates pavilions to left and right with low pitched pyramid roofs. Centrally the fine entrance has Tuscan columns supporting metope-frieze and the garlanded Hippisley-Coxe coat of arms in relief above. The rear (southern) garden elevation, also symmetrical but simpler in design has a wide terrace running the width of the house and overlooking the gardens.
On entering the welcoming and central entrance hall with its stone floor and fine fireplace, the superb quality of the interior Palladian architectural decoration is immediately apparent. The decorative ceilings, door cases and fireplaces are a joy and the traditional English country house style of interior design compliments the classical style beautifully. Of particular note within the drawing room is a central ceiling relief of an eagle, an exceptional door-case and classical wall paintings. The central entrance hall forms the axis of the house. To the east are the stair hall, the dining room, the morning room (with access to the gardens) and a bedroom with shower room. To the west are the sitting room, breakfast room, hall, library and kitchen (with utility, pantry and cold store beyond), a cloakroom and a small office/boot room. The majority of rooms are interconnecting, with the morning room, drawing room, sitting room and breakfast room forming a delightful enfilade along the garden elevation.
The first and second floors provide 19 well appointed and individually designed luxury bedroom suites including one with its own roof terrace. The lower ground floor has a central hall with access to the gardens and grounds to both east and west and provides valuable space with games room, garden room, billiard room, studies, stores and the original kitchen which is engagingly Edwardian in arrangement. There is scope to create additional accommodation from these rooms.
