Published August 21st, 2018
A stunning period house in a secluded rural location with large gardens, 9.10 acres of land, stabling and ménage is on the market in Shropshire with Berrys for £860,000.
The Stone House, Hengoed, Oswestry is an impressive family home providing the perfect opportunity for a lifestyle or equestrian purchaser. With parts of the house dating back to 1823, the house has been tastefully modernised over time yet has retained many of the original features such as elements of exposed stonework.
At the heart of the property is an open plan kitchen with breakfast area and cosy snug. The kitchen has an oil-fired AGA, an excellent range of fitted units and a large granite island with integrated appliances. The room is flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows along with three sets of French doors with fabulous views over the gardens. Leading off the kitchen is a pantry, utility room, boot room and cloakroom. An impressive entrance hallway then leads to a cinema room, home office and a gym which looks out onto the court-yard. Located up some small steps is a sitting room with a feature log burning stove and a formal dining room with an open fire. Both rooms have large windows overlooking the surrounding countryside and gardens.
An oak staircase opens up into the first floor and a unique galleried landing with a large feature glass wall. The impressive master bedroom is located in the west wing of the property and has floor-to-ceiling windows and two sets of French doors leading out onto the balcony which runs along two sides of the property. The master bedroom also has the luxury of a fitted dressing room and a ‘his and hers’ bathroom. There are an additional four bedrooms, one en suite, along with a family bathroom and a shower room all located on the eastern wing. A number of skylights fitted with electric blinds treat the house to an abundance of natural light.
Electric gates open into a gravelled driveway with a double garage and workshop. Lawned gardens surround the property along with mature flower beds and shrubs and a paved courtyard provides the perfect area for entertaining. A double garage and workshop have provision for a home office to the rear.
The property also benefits from approximately 9.1 acres of pasture land split into good sized paddocks along with five stables, a tack room and a ménage, perfect for equestrian enthusiasts.
The property sits in an idyllic location in the hamlet of Hengoed close to the Welsh border and just north of the market town of Oswestry which offers an extensive range of high street and independent shops, restaurants, pubs and leisure facilities. Further south the bustling town of Shrewsbury is home to a castle, theatre, numerous museums, and a vast range of shops and bars.
The Stone House benefits from great access links to the wider road network mainly from the nearby A5 trunk road south to Shrewsbury and Telford or north to Chester and beyond.
The excellent range of schools within easy reach includes The Marches, Oswestry School, Moreton Hall, Packwood Haugh School and Ellesmere College.
