Property Description

Full description

Standing at the centre of the historic village of Abbots Bromley, this impressive Grade II Listed family home is believed to date back to the mid 18th Century with later alterations and additions. The property has a classic frontage with a most impressive double doored entrance to the spacious vestibule hallway, itself opening to the centrepiece of the house which is the magnificent flagstone floored hall with its wide staircase with wrought-iron and oak balustrade rising to the galleried landing. From this central feature radiate the four principal ground floor rooms, three serving as reception rooms, with the fourth providing a large fitted breakfast kitchen, off which lies a rear porch with boiler room and useful dark room over. Access also from the hallway is to a fitted guests cloakroom and a rear porch vestibule giving access to the four car garage, which also benefits from attic storage over. The first floor similarly has the central galleried landing with five bedrooms radiating off, together with a first floor laundry from which access is gained to two independent bathrooms. There are en suites to both the master bedroom and guests bedroom, with traditional feature fireplaces in many of the rooms throughout. Although land has been sold off over the years, the property retains a charming walled courtyard garden with a central feature lawn and delightful sitting areas and a very private aspect.
