Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Betley House was originally built in the late Victorian era but has been greatly extended over the years to provide the most fantastic and extensive accommodation. This building is now in need of a scheme of refurbishment and could undoubtedly be a wonderful family home. The accommodation is very impressive with the principal reception rooms being of a generous size, the drawing room being a particularly light room with parquet flooring. The adjacent dining room and sitting room are equally well proportioned, whilst there is also a breakfast room and morning room. The kitchen features a range of fitted units, but has tremendous scope to be extended into the breakfast room. There is also a utility room, pantry and cellar.

The first floor accommodation boasts seven bedrooms with the principal room having direct access onto a balcony which allows full appreciation of the spectacular view. The bedrooms are served by a bathroom and shower room each with a WC.
