Full description

A attractively appointed and spacious linked country period residence with easily manageable gardens and pony paddock in a popular rural locality in the grounds of Petton Hall.

Directions - From Shrewsbury proceed north. On reaching Harmer Hill, bear left after the Bridgewater Arms, continue to the village of Burlton, pass through and continue for about 0.7 mile and take the first turning left sign posted Petton. Follow this lane until reaching a group of houses/small holdings and proceed around a sharp right hand bend, then continue on a short distance, take a right turning onto a private driveway. Follow this to the main Hall and at the far end carry on ahead onto a stoned access drive, which bears left to the property.

Situation - The property is most attractively located amidst the grounds and former Coach House and Stables of Petton Hall, which have now been converted to a number of individual country residences and is surrounded by unspoilt open North Shropshire countryside. Farquhar Court is positioned on the fringe with partial views out onto farmland to one side. A number of quiet country lanes lead away from the Hall grounds offering numerous country walks. Local amenities include the popular Burlton Inn, which offers a pub/restaurant. The nearby village of Cockshutt provides a church, village hall, pub and a primary school. More comprehensive amenities can be found either at the Lakelands town of Ellesmere, which has a range of shops, boating meres, fishing and canal cruising facilities. The county town of Shrewsbury to the south is accessible with its excellent shopping centre, social and leisure facilities together with a rail service. Commuters will also find that ready access can be gained from the Ellesmere road onto the A49 through to the A5 and then onto the M54 motorway through to Telford.

Agents Note - Viewers should note that a number of rooms to the accommodation show furniture / furnishings. These have now been removed from the property.
