Description - Halls are favoured with instructions to offer Walford House, Hodnet, For Sale by private treaty.

This Iconic property, known locally as 'The Rocking Horse Workshop', is a Grade II listed nine bedroom property that incorporates a shop area, fine period reception rooms and adjoining workshops and store rooms. Outside there is ample parking and we strongly advise early inspection to view this magnificent period home that simply 'oozes' charm and character.

Location - Hodnet's name has Celtic origins derived from the Welsh 'hawdd' meaning pleasant or peaceful and nant, a glen or valley. The settlement of Hodnet was recorded in the Domesday Book as Odenett.

Thankfully, the village has moved on a bit since then and now boasts a public house/restaurant/hotel in the form of 'The Bear', a highly regarded local school, and the village has excellent transport links via the A53, which itself leads to Shrewsbury and the A49/A5, and the A41 at Tern Hill which gives access to the M54 and the wider Motorway network.

Entrance Hall - 19'11" x 8'8" (6.07m x 2.64m) - Spacious and impressive 'L' shaped entrance hall, with period style entrance door and having the original staircase that rises to the first and second floors, timber floor, period style cast radiator, doors to the dining room, breakfast room, rear lobby, side lobby, and the shop rooms.
