Tenure: Freehold

Lower Garth is a handsome timber framed country house of medieval origin, which has evolved organically over the years to create a wonderful family home with extensive accommodation. It is thought that the house was constructed circa 1600 with a Georgian wing added in the mid-1700s to balance the facade.

The history and character are evident throughout the house in the numerous period features which include timber beams, exposed floorboards, panelling, fireplaces, original glass window panes, and a butler's pantry; the open fire in the drawing room is particularly notable for its beautiful Jacobean over mantle and stone hearth.

The house offers comfortable and generously proportioned rooms including three impressive reception rooms. The kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor, range of fitted units and an oil fired AGA. There is also an electric oven. The adjoining utility room provides a useful working space, with the back porch and larder beyond. The magnificent main staircase leads up to a mezzanine level where the study is located, and then on to the beautiful landing. There are six bedrooms in total served by a shower room and a bathroom. The master bedroom has a dressing room area. There are a number of attic rooms on the top floor which are currently used for storage.

The current owners have lovingly restored and maintained the house during their ownership and have uncovered fascinating details about the previous occupants including letters written during the First World War which have been donated to the Imperial War Museum.

The village of Guilsfield has number of amenities including two public houses, The Oak and The Kings Head, Guilsfield County Primary School, St Aelhairarn's church and a general store and Post Office. A wider range of amenities can be found in the picturesque market town of Welshpool such as restaurants, local inns and cafés. A range of primary schools are available in the local area including Welshpool and Leighton. Secondary schools in both the private and state sectors can be found at Welshpool, Llanfyllin, Shrewsbury and Oswestry. Road access is available to the north via the A483 to Welshpool and Oswestry and south east via the A489/A49 to Ludlow. A local rail service can be found at Welshpool and connects to intercity services at Shrewsbury, Birmingham, Chester, and Hereford.

Lower Garth has extensive and mature grounds surrounding the house on all sides, with a large sheltered terrace and kitchen garden to the rear. There are a number of outbuildings including a car port. There is a large paddock to the front of the house; the rest of the grounds are made up of established woodland bordered by a stream, which runs partly along the boundary of the property.
