On Queen Street, location is key, and style and comfort seal the deal in this three bedroom, two reception room home. To begin the journey, walk by the reclaimed brick walls and Brazilian black slate slabs of the front garden. A covered porch area with security light and original floor tiles set the scene at the front door. Inside, a super cool and ultra cosy feel awaits. Queen Street has a lovely natural flow, its semi-detached status offering a private, intimate feel. Original hardwood flooring lays underfoot from hallway to living and dining room.
Character and modern features interchange as the home has been updated, not jarring against each other, but complimenting the overall comfortable aesthetic. From the flooring to the wooden doors and frames, that blend of natural materials and bold feature walls creates the warmest of welcomes. The stone bay of the living area, softened by Mediterranean style shutters, sits beautifully against the impact of the deep blue wall. A wood burner stove is the star of the living area, nestled into the chimney breast for nights by a roaring fire. A dining room sits pretty behind the lounge, with doors out onto the patio for those hybrid afternoons and evenings, where family occasions spill out onto the patio or gatherings of friends need additional space when the warmer months arrive.
From the hallway, through to the designer, Bakehouse kitchen, this space is modern and made for gatherings and family time. Built-in appliances make the kitchen space all the more accessible and user-friendly. Corian counter tops and a built-in sink complete the stylish notes and, fear not, the sleek lines of the cabinetry conceal all the storage needed for daily life. With a breakfast bar and double doors out into the garden, this kitchen has been considered for all to enjoy to its fullest. Cleverly concealed under-stair storage allow for the calm, collected vibes to continue from the hallway and upstairs.
Main bedroom enjoys the light from the front stone bay with original wooden beam visible for that cosy, rustic appeal. Mediterranean style shutters appear again, creating privacy and calmness. A luxurious Matthew Williamson paper adorns the main walls and conveys a super luxe, boutique hotel vibe to the main bedroom. Two further bedrooms enjoy space and style with the second bedroom sitting to the rear of the home, overlooking the garden and the third bedroom, currently used as a walk-in wardrobe (why not?!) has painted hardwood flooring.
As bathroom's go, this one has been recently renovated and feels like new. Continuing that boutique hotel feel, large stone tiling with separate shower and bath make the most of this space. A nifty little on air light linked to the electrics appears outside the bathroom, so you can see if the room is occupied without going upstairs.
A lovely, well-maintained garden with real stone patio and pathway, outside lighting and taps on the rear of the house makes for an easy living outdoor space. We hear alfresco dining calling as the days stretch out to enjoy the warmer months. This Queen Street home has off-street parking - a rare find indeed in quaint and quirky Stamford.

Local Life in Lovely Stamford
Voted one of the top 5 locations to live in the UK, the Georgian town of Stamford can afford to boast about its beauty and culture. Romantic, historic and incredibly desirable, the town offers so much in the way of heritage and with over 400 Grade I and II listed buildings, character and charm lies round every corner.
Within a short hop and step from each other are an abundance of independent and brand name shops, cool bars, fantastic array of restaurants and funky cafes. You have to check out Shekleton Wines (takeaway or sit in). If you like your tea served in a traditional tea pot with a sweet something on the side then the Crown Hotel is for you – even your well-behaved dog can expect a welcome treat! For those that enjoy a good Sunday roast the Bull & Swan serves delicious roast dinners and their traditional puddings are something to behold – they even have an outdoor cinema in the summer months! The best treat by far to start any celebration is a cocktail at the world-famous George Hotel. Whether you dine in the Garden Room or the main restaurant, the food, service and atmosphere is second to none.
There is the stunningly beautiful Burghley House and estate which holds many annual events such as the Burghley Horse Trials, Game Fair, and the extremely physically challenging “Rat Race”.
There are some fantastic schools for kiddly winks of all ages and private schooling is available in town at the renowned Stamford Endowed Schools.
Commuting couldn’t be easier, it’s a short walk to the towns very traditional Railway Station which provides access to all local and national rail services. London, amazingly is only 55 mins by train and 1 ½ hours in the car (well assuming no roadworks on the way!), the A1 runs just to the west of the town, giving easy access to both north and south.
Stamford is surrounded by some breath-taking countryside and bringing an element of this to your door we have the Stamford Meadows which runs alongside the River Welland to help you blow off the cobwebs or to just enjoy a long Sunday ramble. Rutland Water, Europe’s largest man-made lake, is approximately 5 miles from town and offers an exciting day of water sports and facilities including fly-fishing and sailing.
