Stavordale is located in a quiet and elevated position close to the Watercress Line station on the edge of Ropley village. A lawned garden wraps around the house, with a high hedge giving it privacy and seclusion. There is good parking, a garage and a superb garden studio, which would be ideal for someone working from home, and for hobbies. The property is approached via a pair of 5-bar gates opening to the driveway, where there is parking for a number of cars, and an electric car charging point attached to the garage.
