7 bedroom semi-detached house for saleMain Street, Stonnall, Staffordshire
A truly impressive 3,487 sq.ft 17th Century residence steeped in local history on a plot of 0.63 of an acre. Believed to have once been the thriving Welsh Harp Inn one of the main staging posts on the London to Chester Road. With historic inventories listing rooms such as the Great Parlour and Coachman's Parlour this was reportedly the birthplace of Tom King, highway man Dick Turpin's mate, and the rumours of a 'filled in' tunnel connecting it to the Manor House and Castle Hill heightens the romance of this dwelling even further.
Now separated in to two, partially Grade II listed, substantial dwellings the resplendent history of this home is evident at every turn.
The upper floors still offer seven bedrooms with wide plank oak floor boards and the exposed timber structure of the original house and the ground floor boasts the grandeur you would expect from a property of this importance: exposed ovolo-molded bressummer beams, tuscan porch, entrance hallway, drawing room, formal dining room, kitchen, utility, cloakroom and cellar.
Externally the property occupies a plot of some 0.63 of an acre with manicured formal gardens, gated driveway parking for many vehicles, detached office and separate 'secret garden'.
Viewing is essential to appreciate the abundant charm and flexibility of this home as well as it's further potential.
