Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in the South Shropshire Hills area of outstanding natural beauty at the foot of Wenlock Edge, Affcot Mill Cottage has been beautifully and sympathetically renovated and extended to provide well appointed accommodation combining character with a modern and contemporary style. The cottage dates back to the early 1800's. Every care was taken to preserve and repair the character of the old part of the cottage and to make the newer part more useful and comfortable and to link the two with a superb and distinctive garden room. The cottage is double glazed throughout and there is oil central heating to radiators and underfloor heating. There are terracotta tiles throughout the ground floor, apart from the garden room, and there are also a number of exposed beams apparent within the older part of the cottage. The renovation of the cottage has been featured in the July/August edition of the Listed Heritage Magazine.

From the reception hall a bespoke oak door leads into the most attractive sitting room. A focal point is the brick fireplace housing a Clearview stove on a slate hearth. There are glazed doors leading to the garden room. The splendid kitchen is a very special feature. There are ample bespoke base units with oak worktops and two sinks. Built-in are two Neff Slide and Hide Ovens and there is also a large Siemens induction hob with a Neff extractor above. There is an integrated dishwasher and a 'grand larder' unit with fitted shelves and drawers. There is planned space for an upright fridge and freezer. In the utility room is a white Belfast sink with a cupboard under and plumbing for a washing machine. This leads to the ground floor WC with wash basin and towel rail. A cupboard houses the central heating boiler and unvented hot water system.

The fabulous garden room is an open plan design and links the old cottage with the newer part. It has a ceramic tiled floor with underfloor heating and two roof lanterns allowing in plenty of natural sunlight. Two French windows lead into the garden and there is also a floor to ceiling window along the full length of one side which captures the lovely views and spectacular sunsets.

An oak staircase leads to the first floor landing. There are two similar sized double bedrooms both with windows and velux skylights allowing in plenty of natural sunlight and one with fitted wardrobes. There are also views out towards the Shropshire Hills. There is planning permission and provision for an en-suite to be created if required. The third double bedroom also has windows taking advantage of the views to the Ragleth and Shropshire Hills. The main family bathroom has a white suite of bath, WC and wash basin set in a vanity unit. Also within the bathroom is a large shower cubicle and a heated towel rail.

Outside, the cottage garden is delightful and well stocked with a multitude of shrubs, plants and bushes and there are various ornamental and fruit trees. Gardens are bordered by a small stream and there are two terrace areas where one can sit and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area. The green house has an electricity supply. At the rear of the garden there is a brick built Victorian former piggery which has been renovated and now includes a fully insulated studio which could also be used as a home office. This building also houses the pump room and two further storage areas. There is also a log store. The stone drive and turning area provide space for parking several vehicles.
