Situation: This fine property affords a leafy, private position between Holy Trinity Church and The Old School House, just off the A488, 4 miles south of Minsterley.

There are a range of outbuildings separated from the driveway by a high stone wall; garage with mezzanine floor, adjoining old stables/garage with mezzanine floor. Off the rear of the main house are a covered terrace, tool store, log store and two further log store recesses.

Set behind electronic gates, the shale driveway provides ample parking with neat front lawns and hedges and fences to its front boundary. The rear gardens are separated into two areas with a lower level terrace extending off the rear of the house with block paved pathways and patios, lawns and stone boundary wall to the rear and central steps ascend to bowled grounds, laid to lawn, with over forty species of specimen trees.

Once inside the house, which dates back to 1843, one will find the sitting room, drawing room and formal dining room to the left all benefiting from high ceilings. The kitchen is generously proportioned and boasts an oil-fired four oven Aga, Belfast sink and archways leading to the open plan breakfast room with walk-in pantry in the far corner. There is a WC off the main entrance hallway, once through the vestibule porch.

There is a beautiful staircase that leads to the first floor where one will find four bedrooms and a home office as well as three bathrooms (two are en-suite and one is Jack and Jill). The principal bedroom has a spacious walk-in dresser.

There is a further staircase to the loft space which has two further bedrooms and a vast cavity which has enormous potential to convert STPP.

There is a cellar which is full head height and the ideal spot to build up ones collection of fine wines. Outside, there are further stone sheds, stores for logs and coal and workshop.

A stone wall provides a divide from the drive to the rear gardens with an entry point for vehicular access to a brick coach house outbuilding which is being used as a garage, a store and potentially a stable.

Directions: From Shrewsbury Town Centre, head out on the A488 and continue through the villages of Hanwood, Pontesbury, Minsterley and into Hope. The property is located on a small lane on the right-hand side heading towards Holy Trinity Church.
