Tenure: Freehold

An elegant 6 bed Georgian house with secondary accommodation set in a wonderful position with a selection of traditional outbuildings and far reaching views. In all about 50 acres.

Location

Coston Manor is situated in an idyllic situation in south Shropshire with wonderful far-reaching and unspoilt views. Set with 50 acres, it has all the attributes of a much larger landed property, offering near complete privacy.

The historic towns of Shrewsbury and Ludlow are 26 miles and 12.5 miles respectively. Ludlow is well known for its fine restaurants. There are a number of excellent private schools including Shrewsbury School, Moreton Hall in Oswestry, with Abberley, Moor Park and Packwood Preparatory Schools within easy reach.

National Hunt racing is nearby at Ludlow. Hunting is with the Teme Valley with the United and Ludlow close by. There is excellent shooting to be taken within the locality, with the base for a small shoot on the farm. There is fishing on the River Clun.

Description

Coston Manor is an elegant Georgian house built of Ashlar stone set in a wonderful position offering both privacy and complete tranquillity.
The property is approached via a private 1-mile drive leading to formal gates, which sweeps down via a gravelled driveway in front of the house.

Coston Manor has an excellent balance of both formal and less formal rooms, ideally suited both to formal and modern day
living. The hallway with stone flagged floor has an elegant curved classically Georgian staircase rising to the first floor.
The formal dining room is a well proportioned room with high ceilings and an original marbled fireplace. The fabulous drawing room has wonderfully high ceilings and lovely views both to the south and west. There is a Clearview stove in the fireplace.

To the right of the front door is a charming study with lovely mellow stone fireplace, leading on to the more informal part
of the house with the everyday sitting room and a large living kitchen with 3-door Aga and larder off, and back kitchen/utility room. On the first floor is a large central landing area off which all the principal bedrooms flow.

The principal suite occupies much of the front facade with an extensive bedroom and bathroom, with 6 further bedrooms (1 ensuite) and 2 bathrooms, together with a large children's games area.

The bedroom accommodation, which is extensive, could be reconfigured in a number of ways. Outside is an extensive range of traditional outbuildings including the wood-burner which supplements the hot water and the private office above the workshop and wood store. There is also integral garaging.

Coston Manor is surrounded by enchanting gardens and grounds with a lovely central pond and tennis court beyond. There is a well kept vegetable garden with asparagus and rhubarb.

Coston Stables

Coston Stables provides a secondary house to Coston Manor, either for family use or which could be let separately without impinging on the enjoyment of the main house. Again,
built of stone, it similarly looks out over Coston's own farmland and into the distance. It has been laid out to provide a principal living room, kitchen, sitting room, office and utility room on the ground floor, with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the first floor.

The extensive Courtyard Complex, again in stone, offers a multitude of opportunities, either for conversion to residential, subject to planning, commercial office space or extensive stabling.

The Land

The land gently falls away and is largely south facing, extending to 50 acres. It is all down to permanent pasture.

Farm Aspects:
Land Classification: The majority of the land is Grade 3 on the
Agricultural Land Classification series.

Soil types: The Soils belong to the Stone Eastern series of soil type, according to the soil survey of England & Wales. Such soils are well drained finely silty over clayey soils on limestone.

Aspect: The land is gently sloping towards the River Clun and the east.

Water: The majority of the farmland has the benefit of water troughs which are fed by the private spring and fill automatically.
Woodland: There are various blocks of woodland interspersed around the farm, with the largest block being located on the western side of the drive next to Quarry House. We understand that this area is a former quarry.

Square Footage: 16,009 sq ft
Acreage: 50 Acres

Directions

From the A49 at Craven Arms, take the B4368 towards Aston-on-Clun. After three miles, you reach village of Aston-On-Clun. Turn left immediately (sign posted Broome), before you reach the garage and the pub. After two hundred yards, turn right though stone gate posts by an oak tree and follow the drive for exactly one mile. Come through the automatic gates to the front of the house.
