Published July 26th, 2016

An impressive Grade ll Listed country hall with 4.5 acres of land has come on the market with Berrys in Shropshire.

Crosemere Hall, Ellesmere has six good sized bedrooms, private walled garden with dovecote, stables, flood lit manege, workshop and garage and is for sale with a guide price of £700,000.

An additional 11 acres is available by separate negotiation, making the property ideal for equestrian use or keeping livestock.

“This is an exceptional country home situated close to the village of Cockshutt that would make a perfect family home,” said Philip Robinson, residential agency manager with Berrys at Shrewsbury.

“Dating back to the 16th Century, the house is steeped in history. It became a working farm owned by the landed gentry and was renowned for rearing prize winning cattle and sheep – and reputedly produced the best cheese in the area,” he said.

“Inside the house, there is a wealth of beams, exposed brick work, marble fireplaces, oak floor boards and wood panelled rooms which gives the property character and a feeling of warmth and cosiness the minute you step inside.

“Oil fired central heating, a log burner, an AIMS Electric Aga and underfloor heating in the kitchen ensures that you can be snug all year round.

“The fully modernised kitchen with French doors off the breakfast room and the contemporary bathrooms all add a modern twist to this property. All the bedrooms are a great size and have terrific views over the private, walled garden, paddocks and surrounding countryside,” he added.

You will also notice that the sand and rubber based Manege is floodlit and concrete bases are in place for the construction of stables and a carport. Further stables, workshop and a garage are located on the other side of the pretty dovecote that is a feature of the garden. Behind the house are the former farm buildings that have now been converted into two, high quality residential dwellings.

Known as ‘North Shropshire Lake District’ Cockshutt, Colemere and Ellesmere have stunning meres great for fishing, swimming, canoeing dog walking and general sightseeing.
