Church Aston, is an attractive village, ideally placed, close to lovely countryside walks yet only approximately one mile from Newport town centre.  The village itself benefits from a primary school, church and church hall which hosts a variety of clubs and societies.  There are schools of high repute in Newport along with a selection of independent shops, larger chain style shops and supermarkets, as well as a variety of leisure facilities.  Regular bus services run from the centre of Newport (many through the village of Church Aston) to Telford (10 miles), Stafford (16 miles) and Shrewsbury (19 miles) with their mainline train stations, wider range of shops and leisure facilities.

The current owners have lovingly modernised and extended their home over the years, retaining all the
elegance, original features and character of the property, they’ve created a modern extension with spacious rooms, perfect for family living. 

The accommodation has been maintained to an exceptionally high standard throughout, and it should be viewed internally to appreciate the size and finish of the rooms.  The original windows to the front of the property are wooden sash opening units, with matching modern uPVC sealed double glazed units fitted to the extension.

The Lea is hidden from the roads surrounding it, having a completely privately enclosed garden with sunny
aspect.  Vehicular access is gained via wooden gates towards the rear boundary, where a shared driveway leads from The Spinney to the double width detached garage.  This area is suitable for parking several vehicles off road, and there is a further parking area, for several cars, adjacent to the side of the property, accessed off
Orchard Close.

The part glazed main front door with glazed fanlight is set into the original, attractive and impressive stone
entrance, opening into a 4.0m (12’11”) long Entrance Hall, with ceramic tiled floor, radiator and access to the Cellar / Hobby Room gained from beneath the stairs.  The Cellar/Hobby Room has power and light, fitted with an extractor fan and panelled radiator.

Off the Hall is the stunning Family Dining Kitchen, which is based partly in the original building, and partly in the new extension area.  This room has been fitted with bespoke marble and wooden kitchen units comprising a movable island unit, with shelves and cupboards below and a large marble deep sink with matching adjacent worktop and cupboard below.  The kitchen has a Rangemaster double width range style oven with five ring induction hob and matching chimney extractor fan over, complemented with contrasting tiling backsplash.  The room has plenty of space for a large dining table as well as armchairs and free standing dresser unit.  There is space for an American style fridge freezer.  To the end of the kitchen is a useful fully shelved storage cupboard having space and plumbing provision for a dishwasher.  The floor is finished with Indian stone flooring, giving it colour and a natural feel.  The room is light and airy, having three front aspect windows, two further windows overlooking a patio area to the rear and double ‘French’ style doors with side windows opening to the side patio area, adjacent to the garage.  Further doors open into the Conservatory, finished with an Indian stone floor to match the kitchen.  This room spans the two ‘wings’ of the property, joining the kitchen to the Cloaks/WC and Utility with the access too to the formal Dining Room, double ‘French’ style doors open to the garden.  The Cloaks/WC is fitted with a contemporary suite comprising close coupled WC and free-standing bowl wash hand basin set into a ‘French’ style wooden wash stand with separate waterfall tap in front of the side aspect frosted window.  The room also has a built-in cupboard housing the gas central heating boiler.  The utility area off this room, is part shelved with cupboards to the wall on one side, space and plumbing provision for washing machine and tumble drier.

Stone steps rise from the Conservatory to the generously proportioned Dining Room, having a large window opening into the Conservatory and a small, additional window to the rear of the room.  A door from the Dining Room opens into the Hallway, off which is also accessed the Living Room, an elegant room with front aspect sash window and feature period tiled fireplace with open grate and ornamental surround and mantle.  An attractive arched alcove sits to either side of the chimney breast with a picture rail running around the whole room.

A wide wooden staircase with ornate balustrade and panelling rises to the first floor L-shaped Landing.  To the right at the top of the stairs, the main Bedroom 1is entered via a large Study Area.  This is a very versatile room, which could be converted to an en-suite (subject to appropriate consents and approvals) or dressing room.  Bedroom 1 has four windows, two to the front and two to the rear, making it an extremely light and airy room.  The room has been finished with traditional floorboards.

Bedroom 2 sits at the opposite end of the house, having a traditional front aspect sash window and attractive cast iron fire grate with painted stone surround.  Bedroom 3 is also situated to the front of the property, being L shaped, it has a useful recess for a large wardrobe.  Bedroom 4sits towards the rear of the property, having a side aspect window over the conservatory into the patio garden area and an access hatch to the loft.  Beyond this bedroom lies the Bathroom, a contemporary room, finished in a period style!  Being fully tiled to walls and floor, this room features a freestanding roll-top bath with mixer tap and attached shower unit, as well as a mains ‘rain-head’ style shower over.  A close coupled WC and pedestal wash hand basin complete the white suite, and the room benefits from a side aspect obscure glazed window as well as a shelved corner airing cupboard housing the hot water cylinder.

Outside, as previously mentioned, the property has two parking areas, access from either The Spinney or Orchard Close.  The main garden lies to the front of the house, having been beautifully maintained over the years by the present owners.  The garden features several seating areas and features of interest including stone balustrading and specimen trees.  The garden is mainly laid to lawn, with borders to the front of mixed trees, shrubs and annuals/perennials.  A pentagonal shaped patio area sits to the far corner of the garden, sheltered by trees, with two garden sheds situated close by, camouflaged by shrubs and climbers.

To the side of the kitchen, sits a further concrete patio area, having a wooden arbour over, a real sun-trap, nestled between the house and the detached Double Garage.  This garage has a boarded storage area to the loft space, and is fitted with two metal up and over doors and shelving to most walls.  A courtesy door and small window open on to the patio area.  A further patio area sits in front of the conservatory, also with wooden arbour over and fronted with trellis and an attractive metal archway.  This ‘hidden’ garden is slabbed, with a variety of vines and climbers forming a partial canopy over.  The remainder of the driveway to the rear of the property is gravelled with borders of fencing and mature shrubs, and a further wooden shed sits to one corner.
