Property description

Chestnut House is found in the idyllic hamlet of Woodseaves just 2 miles from the historic town of Market Drayton which was granted a market charter in 1245 and still hosts weekly street and livestock markets. In addition there is a wide range of amenities including schools, shops, leisure facilities and doctors' surgery and found in a 20-mile radius are Telford, Shrewsbury and Newcastle-under-Lyme, all of which offer a wider range of services. The Four Alls Pub is within walking distance of the property.

The area is well served by private and state primary and secondary schools and the award-winning Harper Adams University is situated in nearby Newport with Keele University located in The Potteries just 15 miles north east.

Whilst nestling in an undeniably quiet and peaceful area Chestnut House is well placed for commuters with excellent road links and nearby rail links along and a number of international airports within 1.5 hours' drive.

The property has an unusual crest above the front door identifying it as a 'Haberdashers farm'. William Adams (of Adams' Grammar School in Newport) conveyed certain lands and tenements in the area to the Haberdashers' Company in 1656 with Chestnut House being included.

Chestnut House is now superfluous to the current owner's requirements and the adjacent farm buildings have been converted for residential use.

Chestnut House is an impressive and imposing period farmhouse which is approached along a lime-tree lined driveway affording a truly striking first impression of the property. With a wealth of period features including attractive front door with fanlight over, coving and cornicing, oak split level staircase and oak internal doors, Chestnut House is a stunning property.

Whilst the house is well presented there are some rooms which would benefit from a scheme of modernisation and this will allow a buyer the opportunity to create a unique family home.

The two main reception rooms, which are found to either side of the spacious entrance hall, are both well proportioned square rooms typical of the period with feature fireplaces, one housing a log burner and the other an open fire. To the rear of the house is a substantial kitchen/diner with AGA which runs the full width of the house and allows sufficient space for a large dining space and a separate kitchen area. In addition there is a separate larder cupboard, WC and cellar.
To the rear of the house, formed in a single-storey extension which was created approximately twenty years ago, are a range of useful rooms including study, shower room and utility room and an expansive hallway which gives access to the rear garden and patio area. Beyond this, but only with external access, is the double garage.

A striking staircase, which divides at half height, gives access to the split first floor. To the front of the house are three bedrooms, the master having an en-suite shower room and walk in wardrobe. To the rear of the house are two further bedrooms and a large family bathroom. This slightly unique layout offers slightly separate living space for a family allowing parents and children their own individual areas.

The gardens are found predominantly to the rear of the house and are mainly laid to lawn with a range of mature trees and shrubs, including fruit trees with rhododendrons interspersed. At the foot of the garden is an area of rough ground which would be ideal for use as a vegetable patch and or for housing of chickens The gardens and seating area to the rear of the house are well placed to fully enjoy the far- reaching views over the surrounding countryside to Hawkstone Hills in the distance.
