The Grade II Listed Stables are arranged around a central courtyard in a horseshoe style with gardens behind. An imaginative conversion some years ago (about 1984) created 7 individual houses. The Coach House offers flexible and spacious accommodation comprising four bedrooms, three receptions rooms, kitchen, two bathrooms, cloakroom, conservatory and garage. Although in a habitable condition with all services connected the property is in need of modernisation.


The Stables is approached via a sweeping driveway through adjoining farmland which leads through a carriage arch to a gravelled central courtyard with shared parking. Through a second carriage archway and to the rear of the property are beautiful gardens with stunning rural views. The gardens extend into mature woodland measuring approximately 1 acre.


Mains electricity and water. Shared private drainage. Oil fired central heating.


The property is held on a 999 year lease at a nominal ground rent. Each of the 7 houses own a share of the freehold of Shute Stables.

Please note: Holiday letting is not permitted under the terms of the lease.

The maintenance of the roadway, sewage treatment plant and shared areas is carried out by Shute Stables Management (run by the residents) and there is an annual charge of £250 per annum.


Please note that viewing applicants should access the property via the road adjacent to Shute House Lane. Take the left lane and when you reach the top of the hill, turn sharp right which will take you directly to The Coach House.
