Property description

The location
Situated in the heart of the beautiful North Shropshire countryside, the village of Hinstock benefits from a range of facilities including village shop with post office, pub and thriving primary school as well as sports clubs including tennis, football and cricket.

More extensive amenities, including supermarkets, doctors' surgeries and leisure facilities are to be found in the nearby market town of Market Drayton.

The busy town of Newport has a generous selection of interesting, independent shops and boutiques along with coffee shops and brasseries. There is also a wealth of educational facilities in the Newport area, including Haberdashers' Adams' Grammar, Newport Girls High School and the award-winning Harper Adams University.

This property is exceptionally well placed for commuter routes being only 1/4 mile from the A41 which leads to the M54 motorway and on to the M6. Stafford mainline train station is within half an hour's drive.

For those with equestrian interests, there are a number of equestrian facilities in the vicinity and a plethora of quiet country lanes and bridlepaths for peaceful riding.

The property
Folly Foot Cottage is an attractive, extended Victorian property which was completely renovated approximately eight years ago. Immense care has been taken to ensure that the house has retained the period features so typical of the era with feature fireplaces to both reception rooms, parquet floors and exposed beams. The external decorative brickwork is characteristic of the village.

To the front of the house are two well-proportioned reception rooms, both with open fireplaces ideal for housing log burning stoves. To the rear of the house is the spacious and well-equipped kitchen which offers a breakfast bar seating area and beyond this is a utility room and downstairs WC. Accessed from the kitchen is the conservatory which enjoys a lovely view over the garden and is well placed to watch over the stables. To the first floor are two bedrooms, the master having a dressing room and a luxurious family bathroom with roll-top bath and separate shower.

The self-contained annexe
Across the yard is a single storey part-sandstone barn. Originally a cattle barn, this was carefully converted four years ago and now provides self-contained accommodation with open-plan kitchen/sitting room with exposed-beam ceiling, wet room and double bedroom with patio doors to a small seating area overlooking the paddock. This charming cottage offers ideal living space for extended family or staff accommodation and has the added benefit of being specifically designed for disabled access. Equally it could be rented out and the current owner has an established holiday-let business in place.

Equestrian facilities
To the rear of the house is a bespoke stable block. Built in 2011, it provides either four stables and a tack room or five stables, depending on individual preference, with a hay and storage barn located to the rear. A secondary road access allows a separate access to the side of the stable yard ensuring that lorries and trailers are parked away from the house and there is an further access to the far side of the field. The land, which is found to both sides and rear of the property, is flat and extremely well-draining making it ideal for all types of livestock, but particularly horses and there is ample room to develop a schooling area, subject to any necessary planning consent.

Strictly by appointment and adhering to Government Covid-19 Guidelines.
