Market Stance is a truly unique category C listed cottage built in the 18th century. The property brings with it so much history and interest with character in abundance. The original cottage has been extended and upgraded over the years, however the charm and character has not been compromised. Set in just under 2 acres of land which includes a former mill pond and a one bedroom Orangery built in the 1990’s. The secluded grounds are quite exceptional and ooze tranquillity and serenity. Over the years much thought has been put into the planting of suitable trees and shrubs and now provides a haven for wildlife. The pond even has its own family of ducks and some brown trout. There are also many areas in which to sit and enjoy the outdoors. The original cottage has been sympathetically extended to either end and now on entering, the living accommodation is to one end and the sleeping accommodation to the other. The interior is quite unique in design with elegant décor and individual touches throughout the property.
Just steps from the cottage is a delightful Orangery built in the 1990s with Haddonstone which is a cast limestone which weathers and matures like natural stone. The Orangery offers excellent guest accommodation providing a large bright bedroom with three sets of glazed French doors leading to the pillared portico covered terrace and garden. A door off the bedroom leads to a dressing room with ample storage and a further door leads to the garden.
