This beautiful imposing country home is only a stone's throw away from the Fenns, Whixhall and Bettisfield Mosses Nature Reserves. With its fantastic variety of wildlife, it is a place of international importance. This property certainly has something very special to offer. Situated close to the English, Welsh border you are surrounded by striking Shropshire countryside.
Included are over 13 acres of grounds with the main house boasting over 5000sq feet of luxury accommodation, finished to an extremely high standard. This is such a flexible, adaptable property that offers privacy, without isolation. It has 3 acres of landscaped formal gardens and woodland surrounding the property with many places to sit and admire the surroundings. You are never too far away from the tranquil sounds of water, with 2 ponds both with ornamental fountains, and a koi pond to complement another decorative fountain and pond in the driveway. A stream also runs parallel to the private track that runs alongside the gardens, leading onto the six fields, currently meadowland, but perfect for any number of uses. Three of the fields already contain shelter/storage sheds. Equestrian enthusiasts will certainly be well at home here. Apart from the other numerous outbuildings there is a outside covered barbecue/kitchen area close to the rear of the house.
The large paved driveway provides parking for numerous vehicles but if that is not enough the triple garage will certainly help!
If a busy city life is what you are searching for, then this is not the property for you, but if quiet serenity is the dream then look no further. Enjoy an early morning coffee on one of four balconies overlooking the luscious green surroundings and afterwards take a stroll on the 1000 acre mosses or woodland walks, which line the formal gardens or along the Shropshire Union canal which lies at the end of the property boundary.
Situated towards the end of a no through road you can truly appreciate the tranquillity that this property has to offer, yet the popular towns of Ellesmere and Whitchurch are just a short distance away. Oswestry is just 15 miles away and Shrewsbury and Chester Just over 20 miles away.
The spacious property itself has much to offer with five double bedrooms, four en-suites and a family bathroom, five balconies, three reception rooms plus an open plan kitchen, dining and living space, study, separate utility and an annexe which can be accessed either through the main house or by its own entrance.
When stepping through the grand entrance double doors into the main entrance hall, you are instantly given an impression of having arrived somewhere special. A central staircase leads up to the first floor where you will find the impressive gallery landing. To the left of the hallway you will find two remarkable reception rooms, with the combined sq footage of an average uk home. The first is currently home to an indoor bar and pool table. This leads on to another equally extraordinary reception room, featuring a Bang & Olufsen entertainment system, this room is large enough for a dance floor, with 3 sets of French doors overlooking the west gardens and bi-fold doors which can be fully opened to reveal a large patio area and the northern woodland beyond. The two reception rooms share a double-sided wood burner and wooden floors.
To the right of the hallway you can find the formal dining room and study. The dining room is flooded with natural light from the large arched windows that overlook the driveway. The study itself comes complete with bespoke crafted, built in storage and could easily combine with the dining room next door as a conference room for business purposes.
To the rear of the property is the kitchen and open plan living space, leading onto the separate utility and downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen has more than enough storage and preparation areas with a extensive range of base and wall units. Featuring pop down electric points, double depth marble worktops, Kohler Belfast sink with feature swan tap, Miele appliances and large double fridge plus fridge/freezer, this kitchen was made to impress!
The kitchen opens up to another dining and lounge area. Five double doors open out onto the terrace. With these, and the electrically operated skylight, there is plenty of natural light. A perfect space for a growing family or for entertaining the masses.
To the first floor you will find five double bedrooms. Four of which make up the main accommodation for the property. The master suite is large, measuring 34 feet by 19 feet. This huge bedroom has a separate dressing room featuring bespoke crafted wardrobes, en-suite with separate double bath and shower and two balconies overlooking the gardens to the west and north.
The main bathroom comes complete with whirlpool bath, shower/steam room, winged hand basin on vanity unity, W.C and bidet. But if that is not enough the built in entertainment system adds that extra special luxury! All the other bathrooms are contemporary and elegantly styled, including high end fittings from Villeroy and Boch, and are predominately fully tiled, with walk in showers/wet rooms and wall mounted hair dryers.
As well as access around the back of the property from its own staircase the annexe can be reached through an adjoining door in bedroom Four. The annexe is a perfect example of how versatile this property is. With a living space, kitchen, double bedroom and en-suite it offers ideal accommodation as an individual property for a growing teenager or relatives or for those requiring office space away from the main household. It could also be easily be enlarged with the inclusion of Bedroom 4.
There is a whole range of extras available to the buyer too numerous to mention so a viewing is essential for this property.
