About this listing
Stamford is a fine country home comfortably set into the hillside, commanding scenic views over its landscaped grounds and surrounding countryside, a fine example of historical country home combined with Georgian fortitude to create a modern masterpiece.

The approach is through a simple drystone walled gateway, up the winding driveway to this elegant family home with welcoming forecourt.

Step into the front vestibule to be met with uncompromising and understated quality. A place where modern design combines beautifully with character and a meaningful family touch. This is a practical and versatile family home.

Welcoming visitors is the double height drawing room with Juliet balconies and two fireplaces, one of which a magnificent open fire. A magnificently crafted chandelier makes a fine centrepiece.

The kitchen is every cook's dream. Functional and appealing, it boasts a free-standing double oven stove, separate dishwashing drawers, copious granite benches and useful off-set central island. Combined with walk-in pantry and dumb waiter the space is a real treat.

Diners in the conservatory enjoy views on three sides over open countryside to the hills and out to sea, with Motunau Island and Mt Cass in the north and Sumner Heads in the south.

You will love the library clad in faultless kauri panelling, gymnasium and huge sunroom, doubling as a games room or entertaining space which opens out to the lawn.

The broad staircase with kauri balustrade sweeps you upstairs where you will find six bedrooms and four bathrooms, with additional guest toilets and second service staircase.

The compelling master bedroom affords the very best views and does not shy away from comfort. You will love the private dressing room, spacious bathroom suite and cosy fire.
