Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Stone Barns are two lovingly converted detached cottages that are nestled in this very desirable location in the shadow of the majestic Stiperstones. Offering views of the Stiperstones (naturally) and the magnificent rolling hills of Shropshire - this could very well be the country living lifestyle you have been searching for.

First impressions matter - and the surroundings and exterior of both cottages certainly have that all important “wow factor”! Boasting a large plot of approximately an acre, the cottages form a horseshoe shape and are separated by a large gravelled courtyard adjacent to an impressive rolling landscaped garden.

The larger of the 2 cottages on the northern side of the courtyard is entered via an oak door into a spacious vestibule. Another oak door then leads into the splendid reception area. Here you will first notice original features such as the partially exposed stone walls and timbe as well as the beautiful light oak flooring. This area is currently part-separated from the living room by a book case but could be opened through to create one large living space.

The character and original features continues through into the substantial and light living room with tall ceilings and exposed timber roof trusses - and the striking stone fireplace housing a large log burner. Just imagine that incredible fireplace roaring away on those cosy winter evenings in a space as stunning as this!

Leading on from the living room, one of the many highlights of this home is the fabulous garden room. Exposed stone walls and the oak framing with double-glazed windows and roof along with its own log burner - providing a relaxing space from which you can enjoy the views of the garden and countryside beyond.

Back to the reception area and a winding timber staircase leads upstairs to the accommodation. Two double bedrooms continuing the theme of exposed timber features. The master bedroom benefits from built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower room whilst the other provides easy access via timber doors into a large loft space.

Downstairs and into the kitchen diner with bespoke brick and oak units with thick solid oak worktops, large range cooker and space for a sizeable dining table. Here, another log burner and some additional seating space offers a nice cosy social space for cooking up a treat for family and friends.

This then leads into a notably large utility / pantry room with downstairs WC.

From here, another highlight of this home are the TWO exceptionally large workshop studios. Both have windows running the length of the rooms allowing an abundance of light in as well as views out across the courtyard.

The cottage on the southern side of the courtyard boasts similar characterful features with tall ceilings and exposed timber trusses and stone walls.

All on one level, there is a large open plan kitchen living area complemented by a standalone log burner in the centre. From here, patio doors lead out onto a large balcony that offers superb views over the Shropshire Hills are Stiperstones. This is a fantastic south-facing area that would be ideal for entertaining.

The lovely landscaped garden is a real credit to Stone Barns and it is evident that a lot of thought and effort has gone into its design. Rolling lawn along with a variety of mature trees such as walnut and oak, curved hedges, vegetable gardens, a large pond and glorious views. The property also benefits from an orchard containing a variety of fruit trees.

Note: It should be noted that the layout of the cottages not only offers versatile separate living accommodation but the fact that the surrounding area is also a very popular visitor destination there could also be potential for it to be used as a holiday let.

Location
