Tenure: Freehold

Ryton Farm House is a fine upstanding Georgian property complimented by an excellent range of versatile outbuildings and a glorious garden with a hard tennis court. The house has been lovingly restored by the current owners to create a supremely elegant and attractive home which combines comfortable family living space with striking formal reception rooms, ideal for larger scale entertaining.

The front door with a fanlight over opens to a central hallway off which lead the drawing room, with an impressive marble fireplace, and the formal dining room with a connecting door to the kitchen. Both rooms have beautiful arched sash windows framing the views to the front and high moulded ceilings. The kitchen/breakfast room is bespoke fitted by the cabinet makers Chalon with hard wood hand painted cupboards with beech work tops and an AGA range. This opens to a light and attractive breakfast room with views across the courtyard and knot garden to the side of the house. The adjoining sitting room has a multi fuel burner set within the fireplace with an arched display cabinet to one side and double doors to the hall.

An inner hall with access to a cloakroom and with a study area, has a gracious Georgian staircase with mahogany handrail leading to the spacious landing lit by a deep arched window and with a range of fitted cupboards. The master bedroom is particularly notable being double aspect and benefitting from a superb en-suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms on the first floor of which one is presently fitted out as a dressing room, and both are served by an attractive family bathroom. A staircase leads to the second floor landing and two further bedrooms, both fitted with
wardrobes and served by a shower room.

Office/annexe and outbuildings
To the rear of the house is a versatile centrally heated annexe; a striking open plan room, with exposed rafters, a central fireplace housing a wood burning stove and double French doors opening to the pretty walled garden. To one end is a hall, utility room and cloakroom. At present this is utilised as an office and games room but has the potential to create further living accommodation if required.

Connected to the annexe is a substantial secure barn and work shop with vehicle access from the road, ideal for extensive further garaging and storage if required.

To the side of the house, with a beautifully maintained knot garden and a gravel "in and out" driveway between, are a range of period barns providing garaging, storage and stables. These also have considerable potential for conversion, subject to the necessary planning permission being obtained.

The house is situated in the small village of Ryton with an unspoilt outlook over beautiful Shropshire countryside.

The neighbouring village of Beckbury has a popular pub, primary school and active village hall, while further local amenities will be found in nearby Albrighton (3.5 miles) and Shifnal (4 miles).

Ryton is well positioned for commuting to Shrewsbury, Telford and Midland business centres, with easy access on to the national motorway network via the M54 and a regular train service from Albrighton to Wolverhampton, Birmingham and Shrewsbury.

The area has a number of well-respected schools in both the state and private sectors including Beckbury Primary School, Birchfield School, Adams' Grammar School in Newport, Wrekin College and The Old Hall at Wellington, along with schools and colleges in Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton.

Approached via a sweeping gravel drive to the front, Ryton Farm House is an impressive house which stands within delightful gardens with sweeping lawns, well stocked borders, providing all year colour and interest, a pretty arched walkway with climbing roses, clematis and wisteria leads to a seating area and a small paddock/orchard beyond. Above the garden is the all-weather tennis court.

To the rear of the house is a sheltered and sunny garden with a wide paved terrace ideal for outdoor entertaining and accessed from both the kitchen and sitting room.
