Property description

A truly outstanding and historic family home extending to over 8,150 square feet and sitting within formal gardens of approximately 0.8 of an acre at the heart of this popular Staffordshire village. One of only a handful of homes within Whittington to offer such vast and sumptuous family accommodation perfectly blending practical family living space with the opulent twists of grandeur that a house of this importance should possess. Believed to have been built for a member of the Dyott family in the mid 19th Century, substantially extended and reconfigured in 1891 and then fully renovated by the current owners in recent years, the central location in the shadows of St Giles Church, within Whittington's highly coveted conservation area, could not be more appealing. The classic architectural styles of the period are beautifully showcased and recent additions provide some contemporary twists against the inherent charm and character of the property.

The upper floors offer seven bedrooms, four bathrooms, sauna room and enormous loft storage with a thoroughly impressive landing boasting a stunning stone mullion stained glass window flooding the grandest of central staircases with natural light.

The ground floor echoes the grandeur of the upper floors with an impressive reception hall, formal dining room, drawing room, sitting room/study. The large kitchen, utility and annex add a wonderful contemporary twist catering to the needs of a modern family. There is also a large cellar, utility and boot room.

Externally the property occupies a plot of some 0.8 of an acre with manicured lawned gardens at the heart of the village and a gravel driveway offering parking for many vehicles. A garage block and coach house extends to over 1,300 sq.ft formerly with planning permission to be converted in to ancillary accommodation.

Viewing is essential to appreciate the abundant charm and flexibility of this home, the delightful rural views and its further potential.
