Tenure: Freehold

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Staffordshire countryside, Woodside Farmhouse is found to the north of the village of Gnosall. This thriving village benefits from a comprehensive range of facilities including post office, small supermarket, pubs, takeaways and health centre. More extensive amenities, including state and private secondary schools, supermarkets, doctors' surgeries and leisure facilities are found in the market towns of Stafford and Newport.

The charming village of Eccleshall, six miles to the north, 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 area, including the renowned Harper Adams University, South Staffordshire College and Keele University.

The property is exceptionally well placed for commuter routes being only two miles from the A518 which leads to Stafford with links to the M6 motorway. Furthermore the mainline railway station at Stafford is just 6 miles away.

Woodside Farm originally formed part of the extensive Ranton Estate which was developed as a second seat for the Lichfield family and, having been rented for a period of years by our client, was privately purchased in 1987. The farmhouse is now surplus to requirements and is therefore offered for sale.

The house is an archetypal Staffordshire long house which has been extended over the years and has many features typical of the period including decorative fireplaces, quarry tiled floors and picture rails.

The expansive accommodation is mainly spread over two floors, although there is a small attic room, and comprises of two formal reception rooms overlooking the garden with a study and snug behind.

The large farmhouse kitchen has a Rayburn as the focal point and a large pantry and utility room beyond. Accessed from outside, are two store rooms and an office which could potentially be adapted to provide further accommodation.

To the first floor are four main bedrooms and a bathroom, these are supplemented by three bedrooms to the rear of the house which have previously been utilised as a self contained living space.

Beyond the kitchen is a single storey three bay outbuilding which has the benefit of planning permission for the creation of a two bedroom detached property. This would offer ideal additional living space if required.

Mature gardens are found to two sides of the house. Predominantly laid to lawn these are interspersed with mature trees and overlook a pond which, although in separate ownership, provides an attractive vista. To the roadside is a fenced paddock which has been planted as an orchard with a mix of fruit trees including damson, pear and plum but could be utilised for grazing of stock or a pony. (The client has indicated that he would be willing to rent additional land to the buyer on an annual licence for equestrian purposes.)

For those interested in horses, there are a number of equestrian facilities in the vicinity and a plethora of quiet country lanes and bridlepaths for peaceful riding and extensive walking and dog exercising opportunities.
