Ackleton Manor, Folley Road, Ackleton
Situated amongst Shropshire’s famous rolling hills and sublime rural landscapes, Ackleton is a small village just 9 miles to the west of Wolverhampton and 6 miles to the picturesque Italianate market town of Bridgnorth. With excellent access to the road network, the village is also ideally positioned for access to rail connections at both Telford and Wolverhampton. The area is well-provided for with regard to schooling at all levels by both the state and independent sectors, with the latter encompassing Birchfield Prep near Albrighton, Tettenhall College, Wolverhampton Grammar School and St Dominic’s for Girls at Brewood.
Ackleton Manor, connected for centuries with local gentry, originated at some time during 1727 as evidenced by a date stone set within the exterior brickwork. Sympathetically extended at the front and rear in the late 1920s, the Manor house is surrounded by beautiful traditional gardens. This elegant yet comfortable residence sits behind a refined frontage with large bow windows and an imposing neo-Classical entrance. Within, the historic main hall exudes a sense of grandeur which befits this fine English country house, with three reception rooms leading off to provide both formal and informal living spaces. The long breakfast kitchen features a substantial Aga and prestigious Martin Moore designed classic kitchen, with both a separate larder and utility off. The extensive dry cellars inspire infinite possible uses, whilst on the first floor the Manor boasts a spacious study or library and a spectacular garden room with a balcony overlooking the stunning gardens. Three vast double bedrooms including the master suite are arranged across the first floor, well-served by a huge house bathroom, whilst the second floor rooms are unusually large, providing three doubles, one single and a further elegant bathroom. Throughout, this wonderful family home retains many character features, including a number of working early twentieth-century light-switches, aged oak floors and period interior doors, with some original sash windows having folding panelled internal shutters.
