Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Believed to date back to 1840, Elmhurst House once served as the Vicarage to the neighbouring Christ Church, Little Drayton. The most recent owners have undertaken an extensive scheme of works, transforming and modernising Elmhurst house into a handsome and stylish family home. The façade of the house gives an impressive approach, with beautiful chimneys and sandstone walls.

The accommodation is laid out over two floors and provides the perfect blend of large entertainment and family spaces with smaller, cosier rooms. The grand central hallway, which provides a superb entrance via an arched doorway, runs the entire depth of the house, giving access to all of the primary living spaces. Most notable is the generous open plan kitchen/ breakfast/living room with beautiful bespoke 'Anthony Lewis’ kitchen and central island topped with granite. A large utility room is found adjacent. To the rear of the house is a south facing drawing room, enjoying views over
the gardens through shuttered sash windows. A family room and home office/snug, both with elegant fireplaces complete the ground floor
accommodation. Extensive cellars are found on the lower ground floor.

A beautiful panelled staircase raises to the first floor landing. The master bedroom is found to the rear of the house with beautiful views and a walk in wardrobe. Infrastructure is in place to turn the adjacent bedroom into an en-suite bathroom, providing a suite of rooms if required. There are four further bedrooms seved by two bathrooms.

Elmhurst House is located on the outskirts of the pretty, historic market town of Market Drayton,
which offers a good range of local amenities. Newport and the County town of Shrewsbury offer a further range of shopping and leisure facilities.

The area has a number of highly regarded schools, including Adams Grammar, Castle House and the Girls High School at Newport. Wrekin College and Shrewsbury Schools are also within easy driving distance.

There is good road access for commuting to Midland Business Centres, Manchester and Birmingham via the M6, Telford and the county
town of Shrewsbury. The excellent rail service from Crewe and Stafford enable easy travel to London and Manchester, while regional international airports include Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool.

Extending to over half an acre, Elmhurst House is surrounded by beautiful landscaped gardens, with a number of defined and individual areas. A productive kitchen garden is tucked away to the rear of the house, with a woodland area adjacent, surrounding an ornamental pool. The formal garden is predominantly laid to lawn with some excellent terraced areas, providing private seating and entertainment space. A generous driveway allows parking for a number of vehicles in front of a large stone outbuilding giving excellent storage.
