The Property
With a history thought to date back to the 17th century and former use as a Coaching Inn, Wolseley Bridge Farm as it's name suggests, is located just a few yards from the historic Wolseley Bridge that provides crossing over the River Trent and close-by Trent & Mersey Canal. A picturesque Staffordshire area very close to Cannock Chase, the delightful Seven Springs area and only a few miles to the Shugborough Estate.

The current vendors have overseen a comprehensive refurbishment of this unique home and have lavished considerable attention to detail culminating in a character preserved and enhanced home but offering all the comforts of 21st century living.

Oak panelling, quarry tiled floors, original cast iron fireplaces, two log burning stoves, exposed beams and brickwork are just some of the special features awaiting your discovery.

Already a generously sized house, the property nevertheless offers further untapped potential to convert and refurbish the attic space into more bedrooms or maybe a games room or home offices, the choice is yours!

Location
Within a few hundred yards there is a village shop/post office, Wolseley Garden Centre and Restaurant, craft centre and bus stops and the popular Saint Bede's Preparatory School at Bishton Hall. Positioned on the A51, Rugeley is within approximately 2½ miles, Stafford 7 miles, Stone 12 miles and Lichfield 10 miles. The West Coast mainline is accessible from Stafford with a regular timetable to London Euston. The M6 can be accessed in Stafford or Stoke.

Accommodation
A Front Entrance Porch with feature slate tiled floor and beams gives access to the Entrance Hall with quarry tiled floor, staircase leading off and access to the dining room and Sitting Room, this being a lovely character room with front and rear windows, focal point marble fire surround, exposed beams and floor boards, built-in cupboard and two cast iron radiators. The Dining Room is a fabulous area of good size with beautiful oak panelling and beams in part, feature fireplace with multi-burner, two storage cupboards, cast iron radiator and discreet access to the Vaulted Cellar. A useful Home Office leads off with built-in shelving, cupboards and quarry tiled flooring.

A substantial Inner Hall gives access to a Guest Cloakroom/Wet Room with white suite and tiling.

The main Lounge is rear facing with windows to two elevations, a superb brick and beamed traditional open fireplace and two cast iron radiators, a lovely evening room to retreat to.

Every farmhouse needs a Farmhouse Kitchen and this one has a hand crafted range of natural pine fixed and free-standing storage cupboards with pine work tops and a centre island. Belfast sink, Belling range cooker, extractor hood, space for a fridge/freezer, exposed floorboards and beams, cast iron radiator. Adjacent Breakfast/Family Room with vaulted ceiling, Welsh slate floor, feature traditional brick fireplace with log burner, natural brick walling in part, stable door to gardens and cast iron radiator.

Leading off the inner hall is an exceptionally generous Utility Room with beautiful Staffordshire blue brick floor, a rare sandstone sink, plumbing for washing machine, fitted units and work tops, Belfast sink, cast iron radiator and two gas wall mounted boilers (one serving each floor). Leading off this room is a large Pantry with further quarry tiled floor, shelving and cupboard space, cast iron radiator.

First Floor, a long Landing with original rear garden facing window, two radiators and door to the potential attic rooms.

The Master Bedroom Suite has a high level vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and radiator, access to a white fitted En-Suite Bathroom with shower over, w.c. and wash basin, sizeable Dressing Room with further exposed beams.

Bedrooms Two, Three and Four are all very good sized double rooms, all front facing with farmland and country views beyond the main road and all having original bedroom cast iron fireplaces, exposed floorboards and beams in some rooms. Bedroom Two has it's own En-Suite Shower Room and there is a main Family Bathroom which is very attractively appointed with white suite including bath, double width shower cabinet, w.c., wash basin, partial tiling, side and rear facing windows.

The undeveloped Attic Space is in need of refurbishment but already has a staircase approach and fitted Velux lights, and offers maximum floor dimensions of 9.8m x 5.4m and 5.6m x 5.2m. An ideal opportunity to create more bedroom/bathroom accommodation or perhaps a games room or home offices.
