Description: 1 The Winthills is a wonderful family country property, which would make an ideal location for a small holding, equestrian or agricultural business. It is located ten minutes' drive from the medieval market town of Ludlow with all of its independent shops and vibrant culinary and arts scenes. 1 The Winthills is set in glorious South Shropshire countryside with fantastic views of the Clee Hills and is totally private. There are no near neighbours and the site is very secure owing, in part, to the electronic gates at the entrance to the property.
The house is wonderfully spacious, with very high specification finishes such as hand-made wooden ledge and brace doors with wrought iron door furniture, wide oak floorboards and slate floors, new windows, new bathrooms, one with a steam shower, large restored fireplaces with wood burners, granite work tops and Belfast sinks in the wonderful kitchen/breakfast room and utility room, lots of built in storage and five double bedrooms. In the kitchen there is a Stanley Range housed in a brick inglenook, a Stoves six ring gas cooker with an extractor hood above and a useful wine fridge. There are windows to all elevations making all the rooms incredibly light and airy. Off the master bedroom, through French doors, there is a large square balcony taking in the land and the spectacular views; perfect for relaxing in the sun with that first morning coffee.
As many as possible of the original beams and timbers have been retained and restored and the whole is decorated in a neutral colour scheme, giving the new owner a blank canvas on which to let the imagination go wild.
In the garden there are various gravelled seating areas, a brick barbecue and a children's play area. The house is surrounded by gravel terracing, which is divided off by attractive low brick walls topped with slate coping stones, and hedging. The well-kept gardens are mostly laid to lawn, with various large island beds containing mature shrubs, and the whole is surrounded by trees to the boundary.
There is a post and rail fenced stable block atop concrete hardstanding, with a five bar steel gate, some way from the house, containing three stables and a tack room, all with light and power. Also a little way from the house is the most magnificent barn of breeze block and steel, with large steel rolling doors, concrete floors, light and power and housing two steel shipping containers of 33.2 cubic meters each, which are available by negotiation. There are also three excellent sheds, two of which have rolling steel doors.
The four paddocks are separated from the main gardens by post and rail fencing and gates and the paddock closest to the stables was in the process of being turned into an all-weather equestrian arena.
There is a long private gravelled drive up to the house and parking for numerous vehicles.
This is a wonderful, spacious country property and a viewing of 1 The Winthills, in order to appreciate all it has to offer, cannot be recommended highly enough.
