The Gables is a substantial detached part Georgian residence set in the heart of Wistanstow village which has a thriving community and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in South Shropshire.

This house is ideal for anyone looking for space. There is extensive accommodation which combines period character features with modern day facilities. It is believed the property dates back to the late 1800's and has Georgian additions.

There are three main reception rooms. The spacious drawing room is particularly light and airy having three sets of sash windows which overlook the garden. A focal point of this elegant room is the open fireplace with its marble surround. The formal dining room has a flagstone floor, a wide window with shutters and window seat, and a glazed door leading to outside. It also has exposed ceiling timbers.

Also on the ground floor is a utility room, WC / cloakroom and boot room.

There are two staircases which lead up to the first floor. A most impressive feature is the spacious master bedroom suite.

The private walled garden is a very appealing feature. The main lawn has a circular rose bed and borders containing a variety of colourful plants. This area is flanked by some splendid Maple trees.
