Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Old Hall is a wonderfully restored and sympathetically extended historic Grade II Listed house standing in glorious gardens and grounds with a self-contained flat over the former coach house.

Principally Elizabethan and built of local stone, the house has evolved over the centuries to include Queen Ann and Victorian additions along with a newly built contemporary extension designed by renowned architect Graham Moss. Today it is an attractive family home with elegant and light living space, blending with the well preserved period features. These include oak panelling, open fireplaces, Elizabethan and Queen Ann plaster work, moulded ceilings and mullion windows.

A wonderful house for entertaining and family living, it is well centred and inviting. The reception hall with its open fireplace and oak mantle
combines as a dining room. The impressive drawing room has oak panelled walls with a deep set fireplace housing a wood burning stove and to one side a recessed china display cabinet conceals a small secret room. The sitting room is also panelled and has a rare feature of a shell alcove cupboard with its original plasterwork, while the fireplace is an early example from the Coalbrookdale Foundry.

The property has recently been enhanced by a new extension that fits comfortably with the original building. It includes a superb living kitchen with a dining area; fitted with a four door oil fired AGA, along with bespoke walnut cupboards and kitchen island, all topped with granite work surfaces. The dining area sits within a bay window, whilst the living room makes the most of the stunning views over the Severn Valley framed through three elegant French doors which open out to a paved seating area and garden beyond.

A fine oak staircase with barley twist balusters, lit by a deep arched window and an 1820's William
Collins heraldic painted window, leads up to a part galleried landing off which lead the five principle bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is a recent addition and benefits from an en suite shower room and spacious dressing room. There are two further shower rooms (one en suite) and a bathroom, all of which have been recently refitted.

A further staircase leads up to the well-lit second floor which has been converted into two bedrooms with dressing rooms, family bathroom and attic room.

Standing close to the pretty 12th century church of St Lawrence, The Old Hall stands within the much sought after hilltop village of Little Wenlock, nestled into the south side of the Wrekin. The house combines village living with extraordinary privacy, peace and quiet with glorious far reaching views over the Severn Valley.

Little Wenlock is a charming village with an active local community offering year round events organised by the village hall, church and pub. There are a number of footpaths and bridle ways giving access to the surrounding countryside for walking and riding, along with a golf course nearby.

The area is renowned for its excellent schools within the state and independent sectors. Coalbrookdale Primary school is a short drive while Wrekin College, Thomas Telford, Newport grammar and the range of Shrewsbury schools are all easily accessible.

The village is well placed for commuting to
the country town of Shrewsbury, Telford and
Midland Business centres, while the nearby
town of Much Wenlock offers a range of local
amenities, individual shops and weekly farmers
market. Regional airports include Birmingham,
Manchester and East midlands.

The house stands surrounded by magical gardens of walkways, terraced lawns and vistas framing the stunning views across the Severn valley. Stocked for all year round colour and interest, the spring sees daffodils, snowdrops and a walkway of bluebells, while the borders alight with colour. The front lawn has a York paved walkway, around a centrally placed sundial and steps lead down to the former grass tennis court/croquet lawn. Beyond is a wildlife and woodland area and a paddock with versatile tractor and garden store.
