The property
The Hollies offers an exciting opportunity for a new purchaser to live on the rural outskirts of Shropshire close to Shrewsbury. Set within 6.9 acres the potential for hobby livestock or equestrian enjoyment is phenomenal. Believed to be an historic smallholding the property has been significantly enhanced and extended creating the country house of today. Beautifully situated in an elevated position the staggering rural views are awe inspiring and enjoyed from all the principal rooms.

Having been sympathetically extended over many years the current owners of The Hollies have retained and enhanced the architectural details giving immense interest and character. Internally these details include hand turned staircase, cottage style latched doors, wooden joinery, oak flooring and exposed beams. Externally a K-Rend facade and a slate tiled roof create an impressive and charming exterior with the formal front now facing the garden and grounds with the views beyond.

Two entrances have been cleverly implemented with country living at the forefront of the design. The wide front door opens to the cleverly designed glazed vestibule. The back door opens to a large boot room leading to the cloakroom with WC and utility room.

The heart of The Hollies is the spacious and well-designed breakfast kitchen fitted with wooden units and an Everhot range cooker featuring a unique triangular French windows opening onto the terrace. The dual aspect drawing room with Clearview wood burning stove offers ample space to entertain. Offering further flexibility is the dining room and study. With incredible views across to the Stiperstones the conservatory is a marvellous living room to be used across all seasons embracing the landscape The Hollies sits within.

There are four double bedroom to the first floor. Three bedrooms radiate off the long landing along with a family bathroom and shower room and all benefit from inspiring rural views. The principal bedroom suite is accessed from a secondary staircase and benefits from dressing area and ensuite shower room with spectacular views from the triangular floor to ceiling window to the front.

Externally, The Hollies is set within a horticultural oasis of mature landscaped gardens and grounds. To the front the gardens are mainly laid to lawn with terraced raised beds, polytunnel and kitchen garden. Mature specimen shrubs and lawn areas are complemented by al fresco seating and dining areas maximising the sunny aspects throughout the day to enjoy the views across the grounds and menage to the Shropshire hills beyond.
