Full description

Set amidst stunning landscaped grounds overlooking open fields and woodlands, Longwood Hall is a handsome country house particularly well positioned on the Cheshire/Shropshire borders. The House offers beautifully presented and well centred accommodation, ideal for both comfortable family living and formal entertaining. With oak features including doors and panelling, notable fireplaces and leaded windows, it has been completely refurbished throughout in recent years.

The front door opens to an impressive oak panelled galleried reception hall with wood burning stove and magnificent staircase. The formal dining room opens to an elegant drawing room with fine stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove.

The bespoke kitchen with its granite worktops, Neff appliances and a four oven electric AGA range has a breakfast area and French doors opening to a terrace ideal for outdoor entertaining. Beyond the kitchen are the utility and boot rooms and the double aspect sitting room all leading off the spacious rear hall which could easily be used for a further dining area being lit by French doors opening to the garden.

To the rear of the house and accessed from the main hall and a separate entrance from the rear court yard, is a hallway and steps down to the cellar, a further reception room, kitchenette and staircase up to the first floor and the fifth bedroom. This area could easily be adapted to provide secondary accommodation if required and has recently been used as office space.

The main staircase leads up to the galleried landing off which lead the principal bedrooms and contemporary bathrooms. All the rooms are well fitted and enjoy glorious views while the double aspect master bedroom suite is particularly striking with it spacious bathroom, dressing room and walk-in wardrobe.

Situated close to the Shropshire/Cheshire border, Longwood Hall is to be found down a long driveway from where it enjoys beautiful far reaching views over rolling countryside. Rural, but not isolated, it is situated within the hamlet of New Woodhouses, between the two busy market towns of Whitchurch and Nantwich. Both towns offer excellent local amenities, schools, bespoke shops, supermarkets and trains stations with regular services to Shrewsbury, Manchester, Birmingham and Crewe.

The county towns of Shrewsbury and Chester are almost equi?distant as are Manchester and Birmingham which can be reached via the M6. The house is also well placed for commuting to Midland business centres. The area is renowned for its excellent schools both within the state and private sectors including the White House in nearby Whitchurch, Ellesmere College, Moreton Hall, Packwood Haugh and Shrewsbury and Chester Schools.

Approached up a long driveway, passing through well maintained paddocks, the house stands in an elevated position commanding views over its landscaped gardens with sweeping lawns, haha and land beyond. The driveway continues up past the house into a courtyard to the rear of the house with ample parking and a double garage.

Up a separate spur of the drive are two substantial portal framed, timber clad buildings with electricity and water connected, which are presently used for livestock, but could easily be adapted to create superb American barn style stabling, extensive garages and stores (measure approx. 60' x 40' and 60' x 30' respectively).The land extends to about 18 acres of part post and railed fields of well-maintained permanent pasture, ideal for livestock or equestrian purposes.
