The courtyard setting at Bearstone Grange provides a great degree of privacy; the principal house looking into the courtyard bounded by two wings of useful barns and outbuildings. The barns remain in good condition but haven't been significantly altered, presenting a great opportunity to press them into service for a variety of other purposes. There is an opportunity to create an access to the rear of the barns which would potentially allow their conversion (Subject to planning of course) without negative impact to the principal house.
Bearstone Grange is a Grade II listed building, the oldest part of the building dating back to the mid-sixteenth century, later extended and altered in the nineteenth century. The striking original black and white timber framed element, sits on a dressed sandstone plinth with a later Staffordshire red brick extension forming a cross wing, significantly increasing the size of the property.
The property benefits from recently replaced solid oak double glazed windows to the front aspect, in keeping with the property, while internally much care has been taken to preserve many of the original features that make the property so attractive.
The front door opens into a hallway with large dining room to the front, study to the right and larger sitting room beyond, with a more informal snug overlooking the rear garden. The property has a large kitchen with central island unit with matching wall and base units and double AGA, along with a secondary electric oven and integrated microwave. There is a substantial boot room off the inner hallway, large utility room off the rear hallway along with a guest cloak room.Stairs rise from the hallway to the first floor where there are five double bedrooms served by three bathrooms.The property is bounded to the rear and sides by a very useful range of outbuildings enclosing a large inner courtyard. The outbuildings are presented in sound condition and remain largely unaltered, offering an opportunity for the buyer to bring them into use as ancillary accommodation, garaging or an office suite. Large gardens to the side and rear of the grange consist of shaped lawns with established, mature borders stocked with a variety of planting giving year-round interest. Views from the property are over open farmland, as one would expect from the rural setting.A detached one-bedroom bungalow to one end of the courtyard has been attracting rental income for the vendors and is being presented with vacant possession. In common with the larger range of outbuildings, the bungalow could be given a variety of uses in the future depending on the purchaser’s own requirements.Bearstone is a small rural settlement equidistant from Loggerheads, Market Drayton and Woore, all providing a variety of local amenities. The larger towns of Stafford, Stone and Nantwich are also with a short distance away. It is also within easy reach of the M6 motorway at either junction 14 to the south or 15 to the north. Mainline railway stations are to be found in Stoke on Trent or the county town of Stafford, both providing intercity connections to London, Birmingham and Manchester.
