A double bedroom has French doors to a private balcony and a modern en suite shower room, and one further double bedroom has Jack and Jill en suite access to a modern family shower room. A large double bedroom is currently used as a music room. A large library/office 2 overlooks the dining room below. There are generous store rooms on each floor.The second floor benefits from two store rooms (one originally planned as a kitchenette the other a wardrobe) and leads to the property's two spacious remaining bedrooms, one with a walk in wardrobe, and to a shower room, numerous skylights throughout which flood the area with natural light.Having plenty of visual appeal, the property is approached over a block-paved driveway offering parking for multiple vehicles and giving access to the integral double garage which benefits from an inter-connecting 16-foot store room with glazed roof, the whole screened by mature shrubs and trees. Bordering the River Stour, from which the property takes its name, the well-maintained enclosed garden is laid mainly to level lawn bordered by well-stocked flowers and shrub beds and features a decked children's play area, and spacious raised decked terraces, one with a part-gazebo-covered sitting area, all ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining. There are steps to the river which provide access for kayaking and other activities.
