Situation: Poole Hall is situated to the edge of the popular village of Alveley. The property benefits from its delightful position, which commands some generous views across the surrounding countryside. Although adjoining a main road, the property is situated some distance down its own private driveway.

Alveley is a thriving village with notable pubs, including The Three Horseshoes, which won the 'Best Pub in Shropshire' award in 2010. It has an active and friendly local community, with village hall, cricket and tennis clubs, sports fields and well-supported primary school. The village is surrounded by unspoilt rolling countryside, with a number of quiet bridleways and footpaths, nearby golf courses and sailing at Chelmarsh Lake.

The historic towns of Bridgnorth to the north and Kidderminster to the south both have a range of social, cultural and retail amenities, as well as supermarkets. The cathedral cities of Worcester and Shrewsbury are both within easy reach. There are several very well regarded schools in both the state and privates sectors within the catchment of Poole Hall, including Abberley Hall Preparatory School, Malvern College, Wrekin College and Shrewsbury School. Alveley is easily accessible to the city of Birmingham, which has an international airport and is home to the widely popular National Exhibition Centre.

Description: Poole Hall is a beautiful, moated manor house, steeped in history. The building stands on the site of an 11th century priory. In the early 15th century, the monks began farming Carp in the abbey pool, making Poole Hall one of the oldest fishing sites in England. The house was then extensively modernised in 1702, into its prominent Queen Anne style. The moats have since been expanded and offer any ingoing purchaser a huge scope for commercial activity.

To the front of the property is a red brick road with large stone pillars, encompassing a wrought iron picket fence with central path to the front door and hall. The porch is a two storey, stone elevation and enclosed is a heavy-set, thick oak door which opens up into a large hallway with full-height ceilings and cornicing. There are doors to either side, one to the large dining room, which has a fireplace set within a large stone surround. There is ample cornicing, ceiling rose and large sash windows which allow ample natural light into the room. To the other side of the entrance hall is the drawing room, which benefits from dual aspects and also has large sash windows, cornicing and a fireplace with a marble surround.

To the rear of the property is a farmhouse kitchen, which has floor and wall-mounted kitchen units incorporating an integrated cooker, a log burner and dual aspects looking over the side and rear gardens. The rear corridor leads down some steps and to a back kitchen¸ which has a supporting cooker, sink and further kitchen units. A door from the back kitchen leads down into the cellar, which benefits from two chambers.

The fine oak staircase with solid oak banisters and large mitre-shaped, pointed spindles, arrives at the first floor, where the largest bedroom can be found, which has an adjoining dressing room (the second storey to the stone porch). This bedroom also has some interesting medieval graffiti, which has been preserved by the current owners. Also on the first floor is bedroom two, which is a large double bedroom with beautiful oak panelling and dual aspects. There are two further bedrooms, which are inter-connecting and bedroom four also connects into one of the two family bathrooms which are on this floor. The main family bathroom has a glass shower cubicle, centrally-positioned roll-top bathtub and a hand wash basin.

The solid oak staircase continues up to a second floor, where the attic rooms are located. There are two rooms of equal proportion which, with some attention, could become two further bedrooms and of note is the large attic room, which could have any number of uses.

The property has immediate gardens to the front, rear and side of the property. The rear gardens are predominantly lawn which borders to the edge of the moat and has a range of mature specimen-sized trees.

To one side of the property is a detached ancillary building, which has been partly refurbished and does provide the potential for a number of uses, subject to any necessary planning permissions or consents.

Beyond the domestic curtilage, the property has seven active fishing pools, which are stocked. The Vendor will provide an estimate of the stock levels, which will be contained within the Auction Pack.

Whilst there are seven pools, there are also some large areas of pasture land and an attractive, rustic driveway set between an avenue of trees, approaching the front of the house.
