An extremely well presented five bedroom house providing spacious light and airy accommodation within an exclusive development, originally a Victorian stable block and associated buildings forming part of the historic Stockbridge Race Course (1775-1898) which was converted into eleven dwellings in 1989. The Race Course was closed in 1898 due to part of the land being inherited by Marianne Vaundry who strongly disapproved of gambling and refused to renew the lease.
