Enchanting country property with separate one bedroom apartment, in about 1.8 acres with stables & triple bay open garage.


Coachman's Cottage stands in a lovely, semi-rural position, in the Shropshire hamlet of Neachley. Whilst enjoying the benefits of rural living, the property is conveniently situated for commuters with junction 3 of M54 approximately 1.8 miles away giving access into the West Midlands conurbation. Alternatively,
there are local railway stations at Cosford and Albrighton with mainline connections available at Wolverhampton.

The popular village of Albrighton is less than 3 miles away and provides a variety of shopping facilities, bank, doctors, dentist and library. The area is well served by schooling in both sectors with Birchfield Preparatory School, Idsall School Shifnal, St Dominic's of Brewood, Tettenhall College, Wolverhampton Grammar School and Adams Grammar in Newport.

Nearby attractions include David Austin Roses, RAF Cosford Museum and Weston Park which has a regular calendar of events including the V Festival and Game Fair. Within easy travelling distance is the historic Ironbridge Gorge, home of the first iron bridge in the world and many museums celebrating our industrial heritage.


Coachman's Cottage is an enchanting country property which is believed to have been a coaching house dating back to around the 17th century and incorporates part of a Victorian wall garden. The property offers versatile accommodation for multi-generational living, incorporating a separate one bedroom apartment which can be either accessed from within Coachman's Cottage or alternatively through an external door. It allows for independent living having its own kitchen with an integrated fridge and space for a washing machine and cooker. A door leads through to a sitting/dining room with double doors out to the garden. A double bedroom with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom complete the accommodation.

The main accommodation is entered through a porch into a double height hallway from which the kitchen, cloakroom and dining room lead off. The well fitted kitchen includes a two oven Aga, electric oven, hob, fridge and dishwasher and is adjacent to a useful utility room/boot room with a back door leading to a graveled courtyard. There are three main reception rooms:
the dining room with a slate inglenook fireplace; a cosy sitting room; and a large drawing room with a double aspect and views over the garden through double doors onto an outside entertaining area. The open fireplace within the drawing room was built with stone from Tong Castle.

On the first floor, the master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an ensuite shower room and benefits from a double aspect. There are three further bedrooms which share a family bathroom.

The property is approached from a shared driveway through a five bar gate into a private parking area and a triple bay open garage. Attractive gardens surround the property on two sides with a walled courtyard and further parking to the rear. To the front a rose arch gives access onto a lawn with steps leading to a gravel path to the front door. The formal gardens are
predominantly laid to lawn and set within the original Victorian walled garden.

Adjacent to the terrace is an ornamental pond and a well stocked flowering border. Within the garden are a number of mature trees including horse chestnut, camellia and magnolia as well as a timber framed garden house and greenhouse and a sheltered area for a kitchen garden.

Beyond the garden is an enclosed paddock with post and rail fencing, water, field shelter, a further holding paddock, with hay store, feed room, log store, tack room and four timber stables. Across the rear drive is an enclosed field with shelter and water.

Square Footage: 2,236 sq ft
