Property Full Details
PROPERTY Become Lord and Lady of this beautiful Victorian home which sits within the delightful village of Stoke on Tern and boasts vistas overlooking the village church of St Peters and stunning Shropshire countryside akin to a scene in an oil painting landscape. Built in 1842 The Old Rectory was originally a much larger mansion which was reduced in size after World War II, yet the undeniable grandeur of this magnificent property is still apparent as soon as you enter its impressive grounds. The wonderfully spacious rooms within the property retain much of their original character with their high ceilings, ceiling roses, picture rails and window shutters to name but a few with the more recent additions such as the magnificent Rodger Pearson carved marble fireplaces, cast iron fireplaces and the beautiful bespoke dining kitchen designed by Mark Cooper. As you enter via the stained glass double doors you will be met by the grand entrance hallway leading onto the elegant drawing room, country style dining kitchen, formal dining room, lounge with a small room off which is currently used as a bar room, a large cloakroom/wc, utility/boiler room and access down to the large cellar space. Moving onwards to the first floor you will find a generous landing area, five king sized bedrooms, a luxury main bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath and two further generous bathrooms. Continuing to the second floor are the two self contained one bedroom apartments, both with kitchenettes, sitting rooms and fitted bathrooms providing excellent accommodation ideal for semi dependant relatives or to generate a rental income. Furthermore there is an additional bathroom and large room which is currently used as a gym. Externally the resplendent encompassing gardens will continue to impress with beautifully manicured lawns and adjoining paddock which equate to approximately 2.7 acres. The impressive approach through wrought iron electric gates leads along the imposing tree lined driveway onto a gravel turning area around a central water fountain. Over to one side is a gated stable yard with a stable block, store and shelter and access to the aforementioned paddocks which are flanked by a natural stream and surrounded by meadows. The formally landscaped gardens include a number of ancient trees such as Oak, Lime, Apple and Cherry and a majestic Beech walkway leading to a further lawned garden. In addition to this there is an enclosed courtyard at the rear side of the property which includes a range of brick outbuildings and log store and not forgetting the paved sun terrace where the far reaching views over the Hawkstone Hills can be enjoyed. So all you need to do now is contact us to arrange a viewing of this wonderful home so that you too can appreciate all of its splendour and idyllic location.
