Property Full Details

PROPERTY If ever a house and garden encapsulated the splendour of an Edwardian dream home, Four Tunes, which was the original old rectory in the idyllic village of Ashley, is guaranteed to make that dream come true. The origins of the Old Rectory date back to 1928. Internally this is a stunning home with the proportions and ceiling heights reflecting its classical architectural heritage. As a result there is a real sense of space and light. Formality sits well beside modern day informality so, for many, a perfect combination. This delightful and impressive former rectory is situated in a prominent yet peaceful location set within extensive and beautifully maintained mature gardens and grounds which overlook the beautiful St John the Baptist church and its medieval tower. The internal accommodation is accessed from the welcoming reception hall providing a real sense of arrival. Of particular note is the impressive lounge/drawing room of elegant proportions and flooded with natural light from the French doors and windows enjoying wonderful views over the sweeping lawns and gardens, the formal dining room with an imposing inglenook fireplace, a cosy yet spacious further sitting room with an open fire place with a decorative surround perfect for winter evenings and a light and spacious study to work from home. The principal reception rooms boast an abundance of original features including panelled doors, cornicing, picture rails and lovely period fireplaces, to name but a few. Completing the ground floor accommodation is the breakfast kitchen with modern fitted units, quartz work surfaces and integral appliances and a ground floor cloakroom. As one would expect from a house of this calibre there are useful service areas including a utility room/laundry, a boot room which historically was the parishioner's waiting room with the remaining original coat hooks and a rear porch/garden room. The graceful staircase with slender balusters and beautiful mahogany handrail is flooded with natural light from the large window on the main landing, which leads to the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, four further extensive secondary bedrooms - two of which with en-suite facilities and all enjoying period features and wonderful views over the gardens and grounds.

LOCATION Ashley is a highly desirable area situated near to the established residential area of the village of Loggerheads, which has a primary school, local shops, pub/restaurants library and offers nature walks in the neighbouring Burntwood. Market Drayton is 5 miles distant and offers a more comprehensive range of amenities, which includes schools, specialist and high street shops, supermarkets, restaurants and health and leisure facilities. The larger towns of Stafford, Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stoke-on-Trent are within commutable distance and have motorway and rail links.
