    The property, which is set in 9.25 acres, is approached from the quiet country lane through remote controlled iron double gates which open onto a sweeping driveway leading across the parkland setting.

    There is also a stable yard with three loose boxes, associated stores and a tack room with direct access onto fenced paddocks. From the front gate there is almost immediate access to off-road hacking and a good network of bridlepaths.

    The house is surrounded by established parkland grounds including two ponds, a tennis court (which requires some maintenance) and there is also an area which would be a good spot for a swimming pool.

    Built to a high specification in the early 1990s, Stebbing Hall displays Georgian-style features throughout including tall sash windows and high ceilings.

    The reception rooms are ideally arranged for entertaining as well as family living incorporating a drawing room with a marble fireplace.

    The sitting room has a wall of panelling as well as a fireplace and there is also a large formal dining room.
