Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Drift House is the principal and foremost house to this attractive courtyard development. The house is exceptional in its design and presentation along with its outstanding views across Shropshire. Converted from an attractive mid 18th Century barn in 2000, the property has
been designed to create a practical and light living
space incorporating many of the original features.

Leading off an attractive hall, all the principal rooms have been designed to take advantage of the stunning views. The drawing room is a particularly elegant room with a classical style fireplace and a large window that now takes the place of the former arched doors where carts would have been led through to unload into the barn.

The oak panelled dining room with exposed beams is an excellent space with immense character. The fitted kitchen with bespoke cupboards combines a cooking, living and dining space centred around a large fireplace housing a Clearview log burner.

The bedrooms lead off a wide galleried landing
and have unusual round windows from where the surrounding views can be enjoyed. The master bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room, whilst the three remaining bedrooms are served by the family bathroom.

The Old Drift House stands in an elevated position to the front of a beautifully designed courtyard development in this pretty village of Mucklestone. The house has exceptional views across Shropshire to The Long Mynd in the south and the Welsh Hills to the west.

Mucklestone is located on the Shropshire Staffordshire border and boasts a church and primary school, while excellent local amenities are to be found in both the neighbouring village of Loggerheads (2.3 miles) and the nearby town of
Market Drayton (4 miles). The M6 junction 15 and
Newcastle-under-Lyme are approx 11 miles, while
Shrewsbury (23.3 miles), Chester (32.7 miles),
Wolverhampton (37.9 miles) and Telford (25.4
miles) are all within commuting distance.

The house has a large garden extending to approximately half an acre. A shared driveway leads to a parking area and a double garage to the side of the property. The house stands in lawned gardens with well stocked borders and a range of mature trees and shrubs along with a productive kitchen garden and pretty greenhouse. A paved seating area and summer house are found to the front of the property which lends themselves for outdoor entertaining and admiring the stunning views over the surrounding countryside.
