Pear Tree House occupies a delightful rural location with wonderful views to the south in the small hamlet of Birch Cross and is about 1 mile from the village of Marchington. It is situated approximately 2½ miles from the market town of Uttoxeter. The A50, which connects the M1 and M6 motorways is about 3 miles away. There are fast intercity trains from Stafford (16 miles), and Derby (19 miles) and there is a local station in Uttoxeter serving Derby and Stoke on Trent. East Midlands Airport is about 29 miles.

The area is well served by schools, with a junior school at Marchington and Senior School in Uttoxeter. There are also a number of private schools within easy reach, Smallwood Manor Preparatory (1 mile), Abbots Bromley for Girls (7 miles), Abbotsholme (8 miles), Denstone College (9 miles), Repton (16 miles), Derby High School for Girls (17 miles).

Pear Tree House is approached over a long drive, leading off the B5017, passing through the two front paddocks to a generous parking area and garage at the front of the house. 

The Accommodation We understand the original cottage was built in the early 1800's and was enlarged by the previous owner around 1990. Most of the windows now have double glazing.

As will be seen from the floor plans, the house is well laid out and provides excellent reception rooms with a charming entrance hall in the centre of the house which has timber beams and red and black tiled floor.

There is a magnificent 32ft drawing room with a south facing bay window, open fire with antique surround and a walk in drinks cupboard. There are also French windows into the rear courtyard.

The dining room also has a dual aspect and includes a section of oak panelling and a recently installed log burner. French windows lead out onto the front garden.

There is a generous cloakroom with a shower and a separate WC.

The breakfast kitchen includes fitted appliances with oven, hob, fridge and dishwasher. The utility has a door into the rear yard and garden.

There is a large master bedroom with fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom and dressing room. The second bedroom is a good size and has space for an en suite if required.

For those requiring more space, the house is considered suitable for extension, subject to all the necessary consents, with a possible addition or rebuild of the rear wing to enlarge the kitchen and provide a fifth bedroom. 

Outside There are attractive gardens and a summer house also enjoying the views and sunny aspect.

There is a useful brick outbuilding which includes a loft. This might be suitable for conversion to provide additional accommodation, possibly for dependent relatives or as a home office.

In the rear paddock and orchard there is a two bay open fronted farm building which is suitable for machinery, livestock or general storage.

The main paddock to the front of the house has a pond. The paddocks and large orchard are about 3 1/3 acres with the whole property extending to about 4.6 acres. 

Services Mains water, electricity and private drainage. Heating is by oil fired boiler with radiators. None of the services or appliances, heating installation, plumbing or electrical systems have been tested by the selling agents. 

Tenure The property is Freehold. There are covenants and rights for the mutual benefit of this and the adjoining property, Pear Tree Farm. Further details are available on request. We advise all interested parties to obtain verification via their own solicitor.
