Full description

Willoughbridge is a small hamlet in the NW of Staffordshire, approximately 7 miles south west of Newcastle-under-Lyme and within easy reach of the M6 motorway at junctions 15 and 16. Mainline railway stations in Stoke, Stafford Crewe provide regular intercity services to London, Birmingham and Manchester. It is a particularly pretty part of Staffordshire, with wooded hillsides, rolling hills and open farmland.

Weymouth House sits in an enviable plot of approximately 2 acres including a 1 acre paddock with well kept lawns to the front side and rear affording privacy without a feeling of isolation.

The substantial family home has been modernised and extended through its current ownership to create a home which is not only both warm and intimate but large enough to entertain large numbers of guests in comfort.

The inviting front door with it's stained glass detailing opens into a large reception hall with a turned staircase rising to the first floor to one side and a log burning stove in an ornately carved wooden surround and mantle. Even with the addition of a few choice pieces of furniture, there is plenty of room to accommodate guests on arrival.

To the left is a large, well proportioned sitting room with two large sash windows overlooking the front lawned gardens. A gas fire in a carved surround provides a focal point to the room. To the right of the hallway is a similarly sized dining room with bay window to the front aspect and additional window to the side. A door the rear leads into another reception room, currently in use as a study turning left into the rear hall linking the ground floor reception rooms.

A well planned single storey extension to the rear has created a large and light kitchen. The well-appointed space has an oil fired four oven AGA and central island unit and painted wooden wall and base units, all with smart marble work preparation surfaces. The kitchen is supplemented by a useful laundry/ utility room with two large store units and plumbing for additional appliances under the work surface.

On the first floor there are three large double bedrooms, two of which are served by a smart principal bathroom while the master bedroom enjoys an en-suite bathroom and large dressing room/ bedroom four to the rear. The layout of the first floor is such that with some simple modification, a further bedroom could be created, depending on the buyers requirements.

Stairs rise from the third bedroom to a large attic space with two distinct rooms off the central landing. Both are currently used to provide storage but are large enough spaces to be put to other uses. In addition to the attic storage there is a large cellar, accessed from the rear hallway.

There are a range of outbuildings to the right of the property, one building housing two similarly sized garages with loft space over, a garden store and outside WC. A short distance away is a large wooden barn, serviceable as a shed but with some renovation could provide further accommodation subject to the relevant planning permissions.
