Bearstone Grange is a delightful Grade ll listed country house with a fine range of versatile barns around a court yard and pretty gardens. While a dwelling is thought to have stood on the site for over a thousand years, the present part timber framed house dates back to the 16th Century. This has evolved over time and is now a much loved home which lends itself to both comfortable everyday living and larger scale entertaining. The house retains many period features along with exposed studwork, beams and open fireplaces.
The front door opens into a hall with a staircase
leading to the first floor and doors opening to the dining room with its Adam style fireplace and the drawing room. This elegant double aspect room features a fireplace with a chamfered beam over and sliding French doors opening to a sheltered south facing terrace. Leading off it are the cosy sitting room with French doors to a south facing terrace and a study. Both rooms enjoy views over the garden. The traditional style fitted kitchen has a range of cupboards, extensive worktops and island, along with a four door oil fired AGA.
A useful boot room, utility room and W.C lead off the back hall with a door out to the garage and courtyard.
There are two staircases leading to the front and back landings. The master bedroom has a separate dressing room and en suite bathroom, as does the main guest bedroom, while the three further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom.
To the rear of the house and to one side of the court yard is a detached one bedroom cottage which lends itself for secondary accommodation, rental or holiday let. The accommodation briefly comprises a kitchen, sitting/dining room with French doors opening to a south facing terrace, bedroom and bathroom.
Bearstone Grange stands within the quiet and rural hamlet of Bearstone on the borders of Shropshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire. Close to the larger villages of Knighton with its pub, Mucklestone with its well respected primary school, Loggerheads and Woore with their village shops, the house is also well situated for local amenities at the nearby towns of Nantwich and Market Drayton. Bearstone Grange is well placed for commuting to Shrewsbury, Telford and many Midland business centres, while the M6 is close by for onward travel to Manchester and Birmingham. Stafford and Crewe Stations offer a main line train service to London, Manchester and Birmingham.
The house is approached through wrought iron gates to the front of the house and a gravel driveway leads round into a wide court yard to the side and back of the property. Here there is extensive garaging and an attractive range of red brick barns. To one side these are two storey and to the other, single storey. While presently used for storage, these could be adapted to a number of uses, whether recreational, office and business, or residential use, subject to necessary planning permission being obtained.
The house clad in wisteria, rose and Virginia creeper, stands in predominantly lawned gardens with beautifully stocked borders, and boasting a number of mature trees including copper beech, oak and a particularly magnificent sweet chestnut. There are paved seating areas accessed from the house that lend themselves for outdoor entertaining.
